Soffit and It's Importance to Your House

When getting a new roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, there's more to it than just a few shingles. Other important aspects of your roof include soffit, fascia and gutters. What exactly is soffit you may ask? Above & Beyond Roofing is here to explain it to you!

What is Soffit? 
A soffit is technically the underside of any element of an architectural structure, such as an arch, a balcony or overhanging eaves. The word originates with the Latin suffigere, meaning "to fix underneath." While soffits can be found on ceilings, stairs and even cornices, the most common type is found in the area under the eaves on the exterior of a house. The soffit extends from the side of the house to the edge of the eave and closes the space beneath the eave. It serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose for your Lake of the Ozarks roof.

Soffit could be considered the "skin" that covers your eaves. Without it, your rafter beams would be fully exposed and that's n…

7 Summer Roof Maintenance Tips

While many of us are concerned for our roofs during the winter weather, summer can take it's toll on our roofs as well. It's important to maintain your roof year round, not just when you experience severe weather. As your Lake of the Ozarks roofing company, we've put together this summer maintenance to-do list for you:

Summer Maintenance To-Do List
1. From the safety of the ground, check your roof for any cracked/loose shingles, debris or mold and algae growth. Binoculars can come in handy for this step. Mold damage happens quickly, especially in the summer, and can be a real hassle if not addressed immediately. Be sure to clear any debris or fungal growth that you may find.

2. Examine all items that protrude from your roof, including chimneys, skylights and plumbing vents, to make sure they are properly sealed. If you have skylights, be sure to clean around them regularly. Debris and water could pool on top of a skylight and cause major problems if not dealt with. Check a…
