Aside from making your home look nice, siding serves a very important purpose. It helps to shield and protect your home from the harsh elements. Siding helps keep out any water and debris from entering into the walls and insulation of your home. Poor siding can lead to water finding its way to the frame of your home. Moisture trapped at the frame can lead to wood rot, mold growth and other interior damage. Timely siding replacements and repairs can save you money in the long run.
Soffit is the piece of material that connects the roof overhang to the side of the building. It serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose. Without soffit, your rafters would be fully exposed to the elements. Exposed rafters can lead to mold buildup and rotting beams that will need replaced. Soffit also helps your home breathe; with vented soffit, air can flow through the vents to provide proper ventilation of your attic.
Fascia is the board that runs along the roof, acting as a finishing edge that connects to the ends of the rafters and trusses. They also typically hold gutters in place. The primary function of fascia is to protect the roof and the interior of the home from moisture. In addition, fascia plays an aesthetic role by creating a smooth, even appearance along the roofs edge.
Gutters play an important role in protecting your roof and your home. They funnel water off the roof and away from your home. This protects the roof, siding, windows, doors and foundation from water damage. Making sure your gutters are properly installed and in good working order can save you money in costly repairs down the road. Clogged gutters can lead to leaks and water damage, so it's important to keep them maintained.
