Potteries Fascias are a leading roofing company based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire and have over 15 years experience in all aspects of roof installation and repair.
We are able to complete all types of roof repair and replacement work including work on the soffits. Soffits are the underside of roof line often found on porches or anywhere there is an overhang.
These underside elements of the roof are just as important as the top tiled roof section as without these damp and water can seep into the roof lining and cause no end of damage.
offits are also part of the airflow of a house as they come in vented varieties. They work to allow air to circulate around the house but limit the moisture that can get through, preventing damp problems.
This is an invaluable feature as moisture is created on a daily basis through simple activities such as cooking, showering and washing clothes. If this moisture is unable to escape, it’ll settle as condensation inside your home eventually leading to damp-related issues forming. This makes the addition of a vented soffit all the more important.
Wood is sometimes used for soffits but has a lesser lifespan than plastic because it will, at some point, rot. It does look great and is very warm but still needs vents to allow air circulation. In the US, aluminium is the material of choice for soffits along with plastic and doesn’t rot, chip or crack but is a lot more expensive, particularly if covering a large area.
