3 Things You Can Expect From Your Soffits

Your roof’s soffit is as important as the shingles and flashings. This particular roof component serves both decorative and practical functions for your home. Here’s what you can expect from your roof’s soffits. 

1. It ensures proper attic ventilation. Your attic needs adequate ventilation to ensure your roof’s longevity and weather performance. Located under your roof’s eaves, the soffit vents draw cool, fresh air into your attic, pushing out the warm, moist air from the space toward the vents at the highest point of the roof. Lack of soffits can lead to a humid attic, which is particularly dangerous for your home as it can promote the growth of mold and mildew.

2. It preserves and even extends your roof’s lifespan. Your roofer will make sure that the soffits are properly installed so that your roof can “breathe” through adequate ventilation. This, in turn, helps preserve and even extend the lifespan of the system, preventing its structural components from deteriorating prematurely. As long as your roof is equipped with enough soffits, you can expect your investment to last as long as its average serviceable life.

3. It keeps pests away. Your soffit also plays a role in keeping pests out of your home. Some pests may find their way through your roofline or gutters to enter your attic. These pests can also contribute to roof damage as well as unhealthy indoor air. With a soffit blocking their way, you will no longer have to worry about these creatures entering your home.
