Soffit panels are the panels that are located underneath the overhang of your roof. Soffit panels are a small detail that can play a huge role in protecting your roof and preventing damage to your home. When soffit panels are effectively doing their job, they will guard your roof from moisture and pests. If they become damaged, they will not be able to protect your home as effectively. Here are 3 signs to look for to signal that your soffit panels are damaged.
- Your Gutters Won’t Flow Properly. If your gutters are leaking or not working properly, this could be from damaged soffit panels. Soffit provides support to your gutters and if it isn’t doing its job properly, neither will your gutters.
- Frequent Interior Leaking. Soffit panels provide protection to your roof and walls. They prevent moisture from seeping into your home. If you notice frequent interior leaking, you may want to consider replacing your soffit panels to add protection to your home.
- Evidence of Pests. Soffit provides a barrier to prevent animals and insects from entering your home. If you notice sounds in your attic or droppings, you may have a problem with your soffit panels. It is best to deal with it quickly, because pets can cause destruction to your roof.
