Roof Repair: Soffit, Eave, and Fascia
Has Your Roof Been Damaged by Animals?
All parts of your roof work together to keep your home protected from animal entry, the elements and more, but what happens when your roof starts to deteriorate? This can invite animal entry and impact your home's ability to stay insulated and safe from the outdoors.
The soffit refers to the area underneath the overhang of your roof. The soffit's purpose is to keep your rafters protected, and also provide a finished look to your roof. Unfortunately, because they're not exposed to the elements, soffits are often not heavy-duty and are easily ripped by curious animals like raccoons, chewed by squirrels, and crawled into by bats. Birds are also common visitors to damaged soffits.
A roof's eaves refer to the area where the roofline surpasses the wall. These, like soffits, can be chewed or ripped by wildlife hoping to get inside your home.
The fascia is the front-facing trim board that connects the soffit with the gutter and the rest of your roof. Another common entry point for animals, fascias are particularly at risk if they're wooden. Elements of a roof can decay over time with exposure to the weather, and animals will take advantage of this.
