Soffit and Fascia Replacement
Many homeowners who contact Tampa Exteriors for assistance with damage to their soffit may be interested in replacing all of the soffit. The fact is that some homes have been constructed with lower grade materials, and these materials may be prone to becoming damaged over time. Upgraded materials, such as vinyl soffit or aluminum soffit, may have the same aesthetic look. However, they are designed to better withstand damage caused by exposure to the elements and pests.
It may be more cost-effective to make a repair to your soffit when only a small area has been damaged and when the rest of the soffit remains in great condition. However, the soffit plays a critical role in curb appeal, property value, energy efficiency and more. Because of this, if your home’s soffit is more considerably damaged, replacing the damaged or lower-quality material with an upgraded material throughout the exterior of your home can be cost-effective over the long run. Keep in mind that issues related to water damage and pest infestation, which are common when the soffit becomes damaged, can result in high repair bills for the homeowner.
