Soffit and Fascia in Tampa, FL
From the ground, what looks like a simple matter of repainting your home’s fascia boards can actually be an indication of rot and water damage that could start reaching into the rafters and roof. Left long enough, critters and the elements can infiltrate the eaves and roof of your home, creating the opportunity for more extensive damage to your rafters, roof decking, ceilings and more.
If you suspect a problem with your home’s soffit or fascia, take steps to protect your home as quickly as possible. ANDY OnCall® offers a free evaluation and estimate of the cost for soffit and fascia repairs or replacement.
Soffit and Fascia Repair
The fascia boards are the flat pieces of trim that hang down along the roof line. If they aren’t properly installed and protected, such as with a drip line and proper fasteners, water can get into and behind the boards. Faulty gutters that trap wet leaves against the fascia or allow water to stand on the board also contribute to problems with moisture and rot. Soffits, on the other hand, are located under the eaves.
If you stand under the edge of the roof and look up, the flat covering, which is often vented, is the soffit. Though it would seem to be somewhat protected from the elements, this area of a house is still susceptible to damage from wind, water, squirrels and other animals, as well as the simple passing of time. In fact, when rainwater doesn’t drip properly away from the fascia, it can begin to run along the soffit. Problems with the fascia and soffit often go hand in hand.
