A solid roof and attractive siding are always a smart investment. Once you’ve taken care of these elements of your home, you’ll want to consider the finishing touches that will take your home’s exterior to the next level. Fascia and soffits are the elements underneath the rafters of your home. These features can keep out birds, squirrels, and debris while giving your home a finished look.

At O’Connor Contracting, we provide fascia and soffits that match the style of your home and the materials used to build it. Whether you seek added value or you want to improve the functionality of your home, our team can help.

THE ADVANTAGES OF FASCIA & SOFFIT

Enhance Curb Appeal: Soffits and fascia give your home a finished, professional look.

Protect Against Wildlife: Squirrels and birds won’t find their way into your home.

Improve Ventilation: Overall, these features will improve circulation and ventilation in your attic and home.

Prevent Damage: Soffit and fascia gutter guards can prevent overflowing, clogging, rust, and frozen water.

WHAT IS SOFFIT?

Soffit is the exposed surface beneath the overhanging section of your roof's eave. Since your soffit is located on the underside of your roof, it’s often not visible in terms of curb appeal but can be seen when you are close to the home, underneath the home or at street level.

Soffit can be made from wood, aluminum or vinyl, and it is important that you have a soffit material suitable for the climate you live in. As roofing contractors who understand the weather in WNY, we can help you choose the best option for your home!

WHY IS SOFFIT IMPORTANT?

Soffit is important because it has venting that allows a steady flow of air between your roof and attic. The ventilation to your attic is important because it diminishes the amount of moisture build up that can result in mold.

Soffit also serves additional purposes; during the hot summer months, it helps release heat from your attic and it helps to keep animals and insects out of your home. It is important to make sure your soffit has no cracks or holes in it and if it does, you must have it repaired or replaced right away.

WHAT IS FASCIA?

Fascia goes hand-in-hand with soffit, as it is the area of siding directly above the soffit. It’s the exposed board you see on the front of your roof’s overhang, and also where gutters are placed.

Since the fascia is very visible, it will need to be maintained to be in good shape so your home’s curb appeal isn’t affected. Fascia can also be made of aluminum, wood or vinyl.

WHY IS FASCIA IMPORTANT?

Fascia consists of the long, straight board along the lower edge of the roof, and is the last line of support for the lower edge of the bottom row of roof tiles or shingles.

Plus, it’s what your gutters are installed on. Gutters are extremely important and your fascia needs to be able to hold them up even during a torrential downpour. Fascia is also important because it’s visible to everyone. If you want to maximize your home’s curb appeal, your fascia needs to look great as well.
