Soffit and Fascia Repair Contractors

Soffit, fascia, and gutters arranged properly create a harmonious and eye-catching look that makes your home look much more valuable and pleasing to the eye. But they perform far more important functions than just cosmetic duties.
Are your home’s soffits and fascia in good shape? Make a quick inspection by standing under your home’s roofline and looking up. If your soffits and fascia are properly installed, they will have neat lines and no signs of decay. 
Fascias and soffits are most often fabricated from plywood, aluminum, or vinyl. When you hire us to clean your gutters – which you should have us do once or twice a year – we will also inspect your eaves, soffits, and fascia, looking for warping, deterioration, or worn-out caulking. If we spot mold or mildew we will encourage you to contact us to remove it then. We will also note signs of pests—birds, squirrels, or wasps— which would require an immediate response.
Beyond this inspection, aluminum and vinyl fascia and soffits do not require much maintenance. Most of these roofing components last for a couple of decades before they need to be replaced. In contrast, wood fascia and soffits typically require more maintenance and have a shorter lifespan. In addition to cleaning, they should be stained or painted every few years.
In general, contact us for a possible repair or new installation if you see any of these issues:
  • Gutter leaks
  • Gutter sags
  • Ice dams
  • Water damage to attics, basements, or walls
  • Insect or animal infestations
  • Wood decay or rot
  • Attic frost
Soffit and underlying materials are tricky to repair since they sit between the roof and the siding. You need expert contractors to handle such repairs or replacements because the techniques and materials for such work will also affect the functioning of your roof and gutters as well as the exterior appearance of your home.
US1 Gutter LLC contractors can assess the condition of your soffit and fascia and recommend a solution that fits your budget and your needs.

What are soffits?

In popular usage, the term soffit refers to the material forming the ceiling of an exterior house wall from the top to the outer edge of the roof, or the gap between siding and roofline (otherwise known as the eaves). Depending on the construction, the soffit exposure profile (from wall to fascia) on the exterior of a building can range from 2-3 inches to 3 feet. In an attic space that is not livable, a soffit can either be non-ventilated or ventilated for cooling.
Your soffit is a horizontal band of wood, vinyl, or aluminum that runs between the bottom of your fascia and the top of your wall. Together they protect the rafters from moisture and weather by allowing air to pass through soffits and vents. To maintain constant temperatures in the enclosed attic space, airflow is important.

What is fascia?

The term fascia generally refers to a vertical surface above columns or along the top of a wall. Specifically, it refers to the vertical “fascia board” which covers the end of rafters outside a building and can be used to hold a gutter. Proper fascia installation is the key to successful roof construction. It also makes your home more attractive and protects the interior as well as the roof from weather damage.

Almost all modern homes feature fascia. In contrast, older Colonial or Victorian homes with ornate rafter tails will not have fascia boards. Originally these older homes did not have fascia because it was believed that the huge roof overhangs, which were part of the ornate rafter tails, effectively kept water away from the foundations of the residences. While this is often the belief, it is not always true. Water can often find a way into the foundation of these older homes, damaging siding, paint, windows, and doors.

Rotted fascia will not be able to support a gutter system that must handle heavy rain blockages or snow accumulations. Whenever your home’s fascia is damaged, rotted, or missing completely, it is best to repair this problem immediately. We can replace your fascia using wood, metal, aluminum, or vinyl, whichever best suits your needs, aesthetics, and budget.
