FASCIA & SOFFIT
When Ultimate installs SOFFIT & FASCIA:
SOFFIT & FASCIA MATERIAL
This product is made out of Aluminum which has a baked on enamel finish. Our main product line is Royal Aluminum products and comes in a wide variety of colors. Vented soffit is used in areas where ventilation is necessary such as gables and overhangs.
Non-venting (also called plain) soffit is used in areas such as large decks where attic venting is not necessary. The size of fascia used on your project is determined by your existing fascia board however, if necessary, we custom bend the fascia to accommodate for non-standard sizes that are not available pre-manufactured.
If your soffit overhang is deeper than 42", we put strapping along the centre of the soffit and secure it with screws which match the colour of the soffit. This will assure that the soffit will not sag in the centre and it will not come apart over time.
PROMOTING AIR FLOW & CHANGING MINOR ROTTEN WOOD
Some WIDE STRIPS are cut in the wood soffit areas to increase the air flow throughout the attic. This ALLOWS US TO PUSH BACK EXCESS INSULATION THAT BLOCKS AIR FLOW TO THE ATTIC.
Minor rotten wood fascia is removed and replaced thus giving us a solid surface to nail the new fascia to as well as eliminating further deterioration.
GABLE SILL TRIM
Most homes have gables in which we used what is called gable sill trim. This product allows the new aluminum fascia to expand and contract without the aluminum buckling as well as giving the gables a neat finished appearance.
