Soffit repair: Promote ventilation and prevent total roof failure

Soffits—the underside of a roof’s eave—are installed to provide ventilation for your roofing system. A soffit vent installation draws air up through small holes in the soffit, and out through a ridge vent, preventing excess moisture from causing the roofing deck to rot. If a soffit vent installation is performed incorrectly, however, ice damming, rot and roofing failure can occur. That’s why keeping up with soffit repair is so important—maintaining a fully vented soffit keeps your home or facility in working condition.

If you think it might be time for a soffit repair or soffit vent installation, here’s what you should know:

The importance of maintaining a fully vented soffit

Fully vented soffits protect your roofing system from rot caused by moisture buildup and ice damming, and can even protect your attic from pest infestation. Soffits can fail, though, over time. If you spot rotting or cracks in your soffit, it is time to schedule a soffit repair with a reputable St. Louis roofing company.

To prevent soffit rot, you should regularly clean your gutters, which will promote drainage and prevent water buildup around the soffit and fascia. Failing to keep up with soffit repairs can result in a rotted roof deck and total roofing failure.

It’s important to work with a reputable roofing contractor to ensure your fully vented soffit remains in working condition.

Choosing a qualified soffit repair contractor

An experienced roofing contractor will be able to develop a preventative maintenance plan for your roofing system which will include soffit repairs. They will work with you to maintain the structural integrity of your overall roofing system, keeping your home or facility up and running.
