The soffit is the exposed surface beneath the overhanging section of your roof’s eave or the finished surface below the rafters and fascia. Its main job is to ventilate the attic and prevent rot in the sheathing and rafters. Soffits are vented to provide air circulation as well as draw heat and moisture away from the house, which in turn helps regulate the temperature in your attic and the rest of your home.
The weather is unpredictable, and rain is one factor that cannot be controlled. What if it starts to rain unexpectedly in the middle of a roof replacement before your job is completed? Don’t worry. As they work on your roof, any experienced roofers will make sure that there are no holes or gaps where water could seep through into the interior. They will keep working until they are sure that your home is safe from water damage.
