Soffit in Cocoa, Florida

Why are there so many different styles of soffit? Do they work the same? 

Soffit manufacturers come up with various styles so that you can match the architecture of your home. Provided they offer sufficient ventilation while keeping wildlife out of your home’s attic, they work the same regardless of their appearance.

How can I best protect the soffit and my house after it is installed? 

There are two things you should do. First, do not block the vents from inside the attic space. The second thing is to keep your gutters in good shape and free of debris as much as possible.

Do soffits require any maintenance? 

With vinyl soffits, there is very little maintenance necessary. Just keep an eye on them to be sure they haven’t become damaged in a storm and remove any mold or algae with a soft brush.

What type of warranty is there for facia and soffit installation? 

We offer a 30-year warranty on facia and soffit through our wholesale company, Kaycan. Just reach out to us if you notice a problem, and we’ll let you know if the soffit repair is covered by the warranty.
