Soffit and Fascia are often over looked by Homeowners. These two elements work together to compliment the look of a home while also providing vital protection to the homes interior and roofing system. At Russo Seamless Gutter, we offer repair, replacement and installation options to help homeowners find the perfect solution to their Soffit and Fascia needs.

Does Your Soffit and Fascia Need Replacing?

Most fascia and soffits are fabricated from plywood, aluminum or vinyl. When you clean out your gutters—you should do this once or twice a year—inspect your eavestroughs, soffits, and fascia. Look for indications of warping, degradation or worn out caulking. Signs of pests—birds, squirrels or wasps—should also be noted and dealt with immediately. Aluminum and vinyl soffits and fascia need little maintenance beyond this inspection. Additionally, if you spot mold or mildew it’s best to remove it. Both aluminum and vinyl can last a couple of decades before needing to be replaced. Wood fascia and soffits, however, usually have a shorter lifespan and require more maintenance. They should be painted or stained every few years.
If you are experiencing the following issues, you may need to replace your home’s soffits and/or fascia:
  • Leaking gutters
  • Droopy gutters
  • Ice Damming
  • Interior water damage
  • Pest infestation
  • Wood deterioration
  • Insect and animal infestation
  • Frost in the attic
Our expert technicians can evaluate the problem and help you find a solution that meets your needs and your budget.

What Are Fascia and Soffits?

Soffits are the surfaces directly under the eaves while fascia is the horizontal boards that run along the lower edge of the roof. While these components can enhance the aesthetic of your home, they’re far from just decorative. Fascia offers structural support to the gutter system and thereby help keep moisture out of your home. Soffits provide ventilation for the attic and also keep your home protected from unwelcome weather elements. Both soffits and fascia play a role in preventing pests from entering your home.

Soffit refers to the underside of a buildings element.

Soffits bridge the gap between a structures exterior wall and the roof eave. The purpose the soffit is to provide proper ventilation for the homes attic. Because of its location, soffits are often vulnerable to weather and water damage.
When the buildings gutter system fails to function properly, soffits can begin rotting from water exposure. Animals, such as birds and squirrels, can also cause damage to soffits when creating nests.
Russo Seamless Gutter can replace or install new soffits to complete the look of your home and prevent future damage. With a wide range of styles and materials to choose from, our expert team of contractors can help you find the perfect soffits for your home.

Fascia serves as the foundation for your gutter system.

Proper fascia installation is the key to successful roofing construction. Located underneath the line of the roof, the fascia serves as the foundation for your homes gutter system. Not only does it improve the appearance of your homes exterior, but it also protects the interior home and its roof from the elements.
While most homeowners choose wood fascia, Russo Seamless Gutter also offers fascia constructed from:
  • Metal
  • Aluminum
  • Vinyl
Fascia is also vulnerable to rotting and weather damage because of its location. Our contractors can help you determine whether repairs can be made or whether replacement is necessary.
When replacing your homes fascia, new soffit will likely need to be installed as well.
