Most buildings in the Greater Toronto Area have soffit installed. The term “soffit” comes from French and it means “something fixed underneath.” Soffits are mostly laid around the main roof of a building, but also under porches, under columns and arches, under a flight of stairs, and everywhere else where there is a visible ceiling. The most common soffit materials in Ontario are aluminum and vinyl and to a lesser extent wood, fiber cement, and steel.
If you have a small soffit problem, repairs will suffice. However, there are instances where complete soffit replacement is necessary. These include:
- Old age: Soffit has a lifespan of between 20 and 25 years, depending on the material. You should, however, not wait until you reach this age because of the harsh climatic conditions in the GTA. If you start getting problems and yours is nearing this age, it is time to do a replacement.
- Leaking: There are many causes of roof leaks and you should, therefore, do thorough investigations to determine if the cause is soffit. At BRENO Roofing, our team has the training and experience to pinpoint the source of a leak.
- Cracks and patches: Snow and wind storms can cause patches and cracks on soffit, especially old soffit. We look for such patches and cracks during our investigations.
- Overflowing gutter: If your gutter has been overflowing for a long time due to debris, leaves, or any other obstruction, chances are that the soffit has already been compromised. We will investigate and do a replacement if necessary.
