The exterior soffit is located beneath the rafter tails, and the fascia is the exposed horizontal band you see at the end of the rafters and runs up the face trim in a gable. The gutters attach to the fascia board on a horizontal run. These architectural elements of the home do more than just add visual appeal and give a finished look to your home. They help protect the exterior of your house by keeping out pests like bats, birds and squirrels, and give you a way to disguise ventilation for your home. The most common material used in our climate for Soffit and Fascia is aluminum. It has a pre-finished enamel that allows for a maintenance free finish. There is a large selection of colours to choose from.
