Soffit, fascia and eavestroughs are more than just finishing’s to your home, they all serve very important purposes in maintaining the structural integrity of your home.
Soffit is located on the underside of the overhang of the roof deck. It provides protection to your roof by keeping water, debris and pests out as well as providing ventilation for the attic space. This ventilation is essential because it prevents ice damming and condensation during the colder months and preventing overheating in the warmer months which could shorten the lifespan of your roofing.
Fascia is the board material that connects to the ends of your rafters and trusses. Its purpose is to hold your gutters in place and also protect the wood beneath by keeping water, moisture and harmful UV rays from entering your roof which would cause damage.
Eavestroughs and downspouts are essential for protecting the structural integrity of your roof and your home by driving water from rain and melted snow away from your roof, foundation as well as other areas of the exterior of your home. By driving this moisture away it keeps your home dry and safe, preventing rot, mold and erosion. It is imperative that as soon as you notice any leaks or damage to your eavestroughs or downspouts, you have a professional come out to repair or replace it.

Stone Veneer Siding is a great, more affordable alternative to natural stone siding. Stone veneer siding is manufactured out of cement and natural aggregates and is then cast from molds of real stone, which gives it the rough look found with natural stone. It is sturdy, durable, more fire resistant than wood or vinyl siding. Because of its lightweight design, it is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and can be installed over top of existing stucco or wood framed walls. With a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes, you’re sure to get what you’re looking for.
Stone veneer siding will give your home a unique and elegant look. With a lifespan of anywhere from 20-75 years (with the proper installation, care and maintenance), you will enjoy the exterior of your home for decades to come.
Vinyl Siding is the most popular and affordable option when it comes to siding for your home. Made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin it requires minimal upkeep, simply wash it with a mild soap and hose it down periodically. It is your most lightweight option which makes the installation process the quickest of all of your siding options. Vinyl siding is known for being resistant to chips, flakes and peeling as well as being quite durable and maintenance free. With vinyl siding, you have the largest range of color choice to choose from, no matter what you’ve got in mind you’re sure to achieve the aesthetic that is perfect for you and your home.
