A fascia runs along the bottom edge of the roof and its purpose is to carry the guttering, while also supporting the bottom of the roof tiles on pitched roofs and the overhanging drip edge on flat roofs. It is important that fascias are of good quality and installed properly. This is because they stop the water from getting inside the roof, keeping you dry.
The soffit is tucked underneath the fascias. It can be ventilated to allow air flow through the roof area. This is desirable, as it can prevent the build-up of mold by keeping the moisture out. It can also help to release heat in the summer months.
The integrity of your guttering is also important as it carries away water that could otherwise ingress and cause damage away from your roof.
Here at M & A Mastic Asphalt, we can provide repair and installation services of fascias, soffits and guttering systems.
