When it comes to replacing eavestroughs, homeowners are often confused about whether they need to replace their soffit and fascia as well. While it may seem like an unnecessary expense, there are several factors that should be taken into consideration before making a decision.
What are Soffits and Fascia?
Soffits are the underside of the roof overhang and are typically made of wood, aluminum or vinyl. Fascia, on the other hand, is a board that runs along the roof line and is typically made of wood or aluminum. Both of these components are critical to the overall functionality and appearance of the roof.
Why Should Soffits and Fascia be Replaced?
There are several reasons why soffits and fascia may need to be replaced when eavestroughs are being replaced. Firstly, if the eavestroughs are old or damaged, it’s likely that the soffits and fascia have also sustained damage over time. Secondly, if the new eavestroughs are of a different size than the old ones, the soffits and fascia may need to be replaced in order to accommodate the new size.
Another reason to consider replacing soffits and fascia is to improve the overall appearance of your home. Old or damaged soffits and fascia can make your home look unkempt, while new ones can give it a fresh, updated look.
In addition to these aesthetic reasons, replacing soffits and fascia can also improve the energy efficiency of your home. Old or damaged soffits and fascia can allow air to escape, which can lead to higher heating and cooling bills. New soffits and fascia can help to keep your home’s temperature regulated, reducing your energy bills in the process.
How to Determine if Soffits and Fascia Need to be Replaced
The best way to determine whether or not your soffits and fascia need to be replaced is to have a professional inspection done. A professional roofer will be able to identify any damage or wear and tear that may have occurred over time and recommend the best course of action.
If your eavestroughs are being replaced, it’s also a good idea to consider replacing your soffits and fascia at the same time. This can save you money in the long run by avoiding the need for separate repairs or replacements down the road.
In conclusion, while it may seem like an unnecessary expense, replacing soffits and fascia when replacing eavestroughs can have a number of benefits. From improving the appearance of your home to increasing its energy efficiency, there are several reasons why it’s worth considering this upgrade. To determine if your soffits and fascia need to be replaced, it’s best to consult with a professionals like us who can assess the condition of your home and make recommendations accordingly.
