make that roof look spectacular with a great Soffit finishing!
Soffit refers to a ceiling section from the top of an exterior house wall to the outer edge of the roof. It basically bridges the gap between the siding of the building and the roof line, otherwise known as the eaves or roof gutters. When installed properly, the material is typically screwed or nailed to rafters known as lookout rafters.
The length of the soffit on a building’s exterior can vary from a few inches to several feet, depending on construction and the architectural style. It can be non-ventilated or ventilated for cooling non livable attic space. the grill that typically covers the venting opening on the bottom of the soffit is called the vent and that aides in the ventilation of the roof structure.
Normally Soffit is made from aluminum or wood, however many many homeowners are now choosing ones made from synthetic and composite materials like UPVC and vinyl because they offer easy maintenance and durability. Vinyl soffits come in different styles to complement the architecture and look of your home. There are also products available made from recycled materials, for those who want a greener option for their house.
UPVC and vinyl are becoming more and more popular and are usually the choice for many home builders. UPVC is definitely a great choice for the Lethbridge climate and offers significant advantage over the other materials available.
