What is a Soffit?
Soffits are the panels on the underside of the roof overhang situated between the eaves of your roof. There are two types of soffits to choose from:
Solid Vinyl Soffits – Solid soffits are ideal for use on homes with large attic spaces that are already well ventilated. They work well with narrow eaves.
Vented Vinyl Soffits – Vented soffits are ideal for use on homes with wide eaves and smaller attic spaces.
They’re designed to provide proper ventilation for your attic. This helps prevent extreme temperatures and moisture build up in your attic. Without proper ventilation, warm air that’s trapped in your attic during the winter could lead to ice dams. Similarly, moisture that’s unable to escape from your attic can cause mold growth.
