Northwest Indiana Soffit, Fascia & Trim Work
The technicians at Liberty Siding and Windows are experts in all things related to siding, and that includes soffit, fascia, flashing, and aluminum trim work. Customers sometimes think they need a roofing company to do this work, but a vinyl siding contractor has the tools, materials, and experience needed to properly address these important areas of your property’s exterior.
What are Soffit, Fascia, and Aluminum Trim?
Soffits and fascia are similar but separate elements of a building’s exterior that work together to protect the siding and roof.
Soffits are sections of siding located on the underside of eaves, with the finished side facing down toward the ground. Vents cut into the soffit help circulate air and reduce moisture around a structure’s roof.
The horizontal band of siding at the end of the rafters is known as fascia. Fascia runs in the same direction as the primary siding and helps protect the structure from pests like bats, birds, and squirrels.
Aluminum or vinyl pieces can also be used around exterior doors and windows to provide additional security and weather protection. This is referred to by several names, including flashing, window wrap, and window or door trim. Most modern buildings use aluminum flashing to decrease water damage within walls and around windows and door openings. Aluminum flashing and window wrap enhance the strength of a home and deter damage.
In addition to protecting your home, soffit, fascia, and trim work can add visual interest and create a custom look for the exterior of your home or business. When choosing soffit and fascia, selecting materials that are durable and easy to maintain is critical.
No matter what material you choose, ensuring that your soffit and fascia are in good condition will go a long way in protecting your home’s exterior.
Protect your home using high-quality materials
Soffit and fascia boards were traditionally made from materials like aluminum and wood. However, many homeowners now choose to use synthetic and composite materials like UPVC and vinyl for their soffits and fascia boards. This is because these materials offer easy maintenance and durability.
Different styles of vinyl soffit are available, such as beaded or smooth, and some offer a wood grain look. Contractors at Liberty Siding and Windows will guide you on which materials will work best on your house and within your budget. We also offer a financing option.
Why is it important to have a professional install soffit and fascia?
When it comes to your home, you want to ensure everything is installed correctly and will last against the elements for years to come. That’s why it’s important to have a professional install soffit and fascia.
If either soffit or fascia is installed incorrectly, it can create gaps that allow water to get inside your home. Over time this can lead to severe damage such as rot, mold, and structural problems. In some cases, rot can even void your homeowner’s insurance policy and cause trouble with a home inspection. It is worth it to have a professional handle the installation process. Not only will it give you peace of mind knowing that everything has been done correctly, but it will also save you money!
