TD Fascia, Soffit And Guttering Contractors Sittingbourne Kent
So many people still to this day don’t know what a Fascia and Soffit are.
The Fascia board is the thin board that covers the end of the timber frame on the outside of your house or building. The Fascia board is what your Guttering screws into for rainfall drainage. The Fascia board is typically the end border for a low-slope roofing system.
Beneath the Fascia is the Soffit, also known as eaves.
The Soffit board is a plastic board creating a ceiling effect from the tip of an exterior building wall to the outer edge of the roof. The Soffit board can come in a range of styles depending on what method of roof construction you may have to help with airflow and avoid damp. The Soffit joins the distance from the exterior wall to the Fascia board creating a ceiling look or box effect.

Weather affects the Soffit more than any other part of your house. Rainwater can damage the Soffit board due to:
A roof loft can become overheated if its not ventillated correctly. In new modern buildings and houses soffit vents and ridge vents are fitted so that hot air can be extracted out of the loft through the ridge vents. This means that cool air can enter the roof/ loft through the soffit vents. The loft itself will stay drier improving the ventilation alround with the soffit vents, as condensation will not be able to form inside the roof.
