Soffit, Fascia, Eavestrough & Siding
Want to increase the “curb appeal” of your home or business while saving on maintenance costs? Give your property a “face lift” with the installation of new vinyl siding, soffits, fascia, and eavestroughing in Edmonton and surrounding areas from the experts at Kirkland Roofing and Exteriors. We offer a number of exterior home improvements to improve the appearance and function of any property.
Soffits are the visible underside area of a roof, located below the eaves. Because soffits are exposed to the elements they are more prone to damage and accessible to birds, hornets, and other pests who might wish to build a nest inside them. Timely maintenance and regular inspections will prevent or alleviate this problem.
Usually constructed of wood, plastic or aluminum, fascia is a barrier that is placed at the ends of a roof. It is located behind the eavestroughing and below the roof line. It provides your roof with a smooth, finished look and protects the structure’s interior from weather damage, directing water off the roof and into gutters and downspouts and away from the foundation.
Because fascia is exposed to the elements it is important to have it inspected regularly for damage or decay and to perform any needed repairs without delay.
Also known as gutters, eavestroughs play an important role in protecting the interior of your home and its foundation from the effects of rain, snow, and other damaging weather conditions. An incomplete or clogged eavestrough can cause water to back up on your roof, resulting in ice damming and/or leaks into your home.
Eavestrough installation looks simple, but it is a job best left to professionals. Careful planning and measuring are required before the project begins in order to avoid problems later.
