What Is Soffit and Why Is It Important?
Soffit is the protective covering that conceals the eaves and rafter beams of your roof. It serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose, adding instant character to your building while safeguarding your rafters from the elements. Additionally, soffit plays a crucial role in promoting proper air circulation, preventing mold buildup, and protecting your home from unwanted access by insects and pests.

In addition to aluminum and vinyl, there are other materials available for soffit installation, each offering unique aesthetic characteristics. Wood provides a natural and timeless look but requires regular maintenance and replacement over time. Steel is a durable alternative, albeit at a higher cost.
