Why is Fascia & Soffit Important

Fascia and Soffit take on very important roles in protecting your home from moisture induced damage as well as regulating the interior temperature. As with most components included in a cladding system, the main function of soffit and fascia is to prevent rainwater and humidity from being trapped behind your home’s building envelope. 
Soffit Panels are seen installed under roof overhangs or large balconies and are designed to create an aesthetically pleasing solution for hiding joists and rafters that remain visible once the framing is completed. However, this is not the only purpose soffit panels serve. Soffit systems are installed with premade perforations or with added vent strips in order to allow air to flow freely from your attic space to the outdoor environment. Without this, humidity and excess warmth would stagnate within the framing of your home and, overtime, cause mildew and rot issues.
Fascia on the other hand is installed as a solid board over the edge of the roof line. This provides a protective border that prevents water and debris from getting under the edge of the roofing materials all while providing a surface on which to fasten the gutter system.
Soffit and Fascia protect your home from extended exposure to weather and, over time, can save you from very costly repairs which is why we suggest entrusting this installation to a professional exterior envelope specialist.


Types of Soffits

There is a vast variety of soffit materials available on the market and it is important to understand the advantages of each one prior to making your decision.
There are a few different aspects to consider such as price, maintenance requirements and material expected service life.
We will get into the details of the different systems we can offer below.

Vinyl soffit

Vinyl products are often the most budget friendly option in terms of construction materials and vinyl soffit is no different. By providing simple profiles in a variety of colours at a relatively low price, this system has become a standard for projects looking for an effective yet cost friendly soffit option. Vinyl Soffits are fairly easy to maintain and offer a respectable service life but would need to be replaced earlier than most other options.

Wood soffit

Tongue and Groove Pine or Cedar planks often seen cladding exterior walls can also be used as a soffit system. This environmentally friendly soffit option is relatively easy to install and the natural wood grain offers a warmth to the home’s overall appearance.
Most decorative lumber products will eventually require some form of maintenance and that is no different with soffits.
In order to minimize the need for yearly treatments and stains, we would suggest opting for Cedar soffits over Pine. This choice does increase the overall project cost; however, Cedar offers a natural resistance to moisture exposure and will last significantly longer than soffit made from Pine.
That being said, natural soffit products, whether cedar or pine, will look great installed on any home especially when combined with recessed soffit lighting.

Fiber Cement (Hardie soffit)

Fiber Cement Soffits have many undeniable advantages. This material is specifically designed to perform in any weather conditions for extended periods of time all while being extremely versatile given the size of the panels.
These soffit panels offer the best performance for the price; with long lasting paint coatings, nearly impervious panels and virtually no maintenance requirements all covered by manufacturers warranty, Fibre Cement Soffits have become extremely popular amongst builders and homeowners alike.

Aluminum soffit

Aluminum soffits are a great alternative to using natural wood or vinyl materials. This type of soffit is priced similarly to vinyl but offers some more favorable characteristics. Aluminum is naturally resistant to corrosion and combining this with coatings applied during manufacturing, these soffits will last many years without requiring more than a quick wash to maintain.
 In order to maintain an affordable material and installation price, these soffits are quite thin and therefore susceptible to damage and denting. That being said, soffits are not usually at risk of being damaged, however, it is still important to be aware of this when choosing soffit materials for your specific project.

Metal soffit

Corrugated Steel soffits are usually used as an alternative for Aluminum soffits on Commercial projects but can be a great option for residential projects as well.
Although Steel Soffits are more expensive than the Aluminum option, this product can be manufactured into many different thicknesses, profiles, colours and finishes all while being less prone to damage. This allows for a more customizable approach to the designing your home’s exterior while also being able to rely on a manufacturer’s warranty for peace of mind.


Soffit Lighting

Soffit lighting is one of the most noticeable accessories you can add to your home’s exterior without investing a significant amount of your project’s budget.
By correctly planning the wiring and lighting layout, it is possible to install recessed lighting with almost any type of soffit without requiring too much additional work.
It is important to visit this option prior to the installation your soffit materials as adding lighting after the fact would require removing your newly installed soffit materials to route wires to the desired locations.
Orbis Group is able to offer many different lighting styles and include the installation cost into our quote for your project. Please feel free to contact us for more information.


Soffit Prices

Given the vast difference in soffit area dimensions from one project to the next, it is difficult to set soffit budget pricing without first reviewing your specific project.
However, we have included some average square footage pricing for each of the different types of soffit we’ve listed above.

Soffit Repair, Removal, & Replacement

Given the location of soffits on a home, they do not see much direct rain exposure, however, they are still subject to constant ambient humidity and prone to damage from insects and small animals such as birds and rodents.
Over time, soffit materials like wood and vinyl can deteriorate and require repairs or even a full replacement.
In order to extend the lifespan of your soffits, it is recommended that you inspect and clean your soffit on yearly basis.
If you do come across any damage to your soffit and are looking for some more information or a repair quotation, please feel free to contact us. Our team of experts is always available to answer your questions.


Why do you need a ventilated soffit?

During humid and rainy days, moisture can accumulate in the attic space of your home while warmth rises from the living spaces below. This combination offers the perfect habitat for mildew and unwanted pests alike.
For this reason, soffits are installed using pre perforated materials or with ventilation strips installed intermittently throughout the soffit system; in extreme cases, ventilation fans can be included in your soffit system to manage the airflow more effectively. 
By doing this, we are allowing air to flow freely from within your home’s framing to the exterior air. This ensures that any moisture and excess warmth are able to escape without causing any mildew or eventual damage to the bones of your home.


Fascia board installation

Installing fascia boards is not, in itself, a complicated process but safely gaining access to the work areas can prove to be quite a difficult task and become extremely dangerous if not done correctly.
Depending on the type of soffit, the installation method can vary. For example, standard materials such as wood or fibre cement are commonly installed with simple narrow headed nails and touched up to conceal the fasteners where as Aluminum or Steel Fascia is often installed with screws hidden by a metal flashing to create a seamless appearance.


Types of Fascia

As with most finishing materials in the construction industry, there are many different fascia materials and colours to choose from. Orbis Group is able to offer the supply and installation of nearly any fascia system on the market.
Below, we will go over some of the more popular products in order to give you a better idea of how each one performs.

Vinyl fascia

PVC, also reffered to as “vinyl”, is one of the first alternatives to wood fascia to hit the market. Available in both smooth and wood grain finishes with a much longer service life than wood, this became an easy choice for homeowners looking to invest in long lasting materials.
Though vinyl fascia will last for many years, they do require regular cleaning and the colour can eventually fade in direct sunlight, creating the necessity for an occasional coat of paint.

Wood fascia

When choosing wood as a material for your fascia, it is important to select the right type of lumber for your budget while considering the maintenance that may be required.
Pine fascia is the most popular fascia material available on the market, however, it also demands the most amount of maintenance.
Using Cedar as your soffit will increase the initial purchase price but will last much longer than its counterpart while requiring only a fraction of the maintenance work. In either case, choosing wooden fascia boards coated with a semitransparent stain will increase the curb appeal of nearly any home.


Fiber Cement products are designed and manufactured to withstand the rigors of constant exposure to weather, be it rain or sun, hot or cold.
Combining exceedingly competitive pricing with a warranty-backed service life over double that of wood or vinyl, Fibre Cement has become, in our opinion, the obvious choice for fascia installations going forward.
Fibre Cement Fascia is available in virtually any colour and can be coated by the manufacturer prior to delivery to ensure a vivid long-lasting finish.

Aluminum fascia

Aluminum Fascia, whether custom maufactured ACM panels or Extruded Aluminum Planks are one of the most aesthetically pleasing materials available on the market.
Offering extremely high-quality finishes and a very durable and corrosion resistant substrate, Aluminum Fascia has quickly gained popularity among architects, home builders and homeowners.
They are light weight and fairly easy to install, however, the raw materials are significantly more expensive than wood, vinyl or fibre cement. Many customers opt to showcase these materials by using them on the most visible areas of their home in order to maximize their investment.

Corrugated Steel Fascia

Corrugated Steel is most often used as a cladding product on the commercial market but have become a common sight on modern style homes.
These panels are available in a huge variety of colours or profiles and with the right protective coatings, they can even be left unpainted.
With little to no maintenance required and mid-range material cost, Corrugated Steel has gained a lot of interest over the last few years and will likely continue to do so as the style of homes continues to modernize.


Fascia Installation & Replacement Costs

Depending on the materials and the specific installation, the price of fascia can vary greatly.
It is safe to budget between $4.50 and $8 per linear foot for the installation of new fascia products or $15 to $25 for to removal and replacement of existing fascia material.
