Alpine Sheet Metal Systems Install Metal Roofing Soffit Systems. Metal soffits combine the strength, performance and good looks of premium grade aluminum. Unlike wood, aluminum doesn’t rot, plus it resists insects and fire making it a trusted, low-maintenance choice for your home. You can choose from solid and vented options in durable finishes and a variety of matching and coordinating colors.
Completely sealing off the interior of your home from the outside might seem like a good idea, but it actually can lead to air quality issues and even damage to your home’s interior. Instead, you want to ensure the exterior of your home is designed with proper ventilation in mind.
Soffit and fascia are two important elements of a proper roof system when it comes to ventilation. Soffits are the boards under your roof eaves while fascias run parallel along your roof, where gutters are placed. While fascia is important for both sealing off the soffit and aesthetics, the soffit itself is what provides ventilation to the attic.
Soffit comes in two forms: vented and non-vented. The difference between vented and non-vented soffit is usually easy to see (vented soffit has holes while non-vented does not). You could use a combination of both vented and non-vented soffit on your home for proper ventilation, depending on how much ventilation you need.
