A roofing system is made up of various components that allow it to protect your home. These components include the shingles, roof deck and even the underlayments. However, when it comes to roof components, there is one that is often overlooked by most homeowners: the soffits. The soffits are the material between your roof’s eaves where the fascia and gutters are placed to the wall. However, this isn’t the only purpose of the soffit.
In this article, Dynamic Roofing Concepts, Inc. reveals why the roof soffit is incredibly important for any home.
Proper Air Ventilation
Whether you own an asphalt or metal roofing system, air ventilation is important in prolonging the lifespan of your roof. This is where the soffit comes in as it acts as a passive air ventilation unit for your attic, preventing warm moisture in the air from entering your attic, causing condensation, and eventually, mold. In fact, according to professionals, soffits are the most effective manner of ventilating an attic and extending your roof’s lifespan.

Prevent Pest Infestation
Apart from properly ventilating your attic, soffits can also act as a barrier between your home and pests such as ants, termites, and even squirrels. This is because without the soffit, pests can slip into your home via the roofline or gutters and start nesting in your attic before causing damage to your roof and electrical systems. Apart from that, they can also bring down the air quality of your home and cause respiratory issues for you and your family.
