A two Z Windows & Doors Calgary Soffit, Fascia and Eaves FAQs

Will I need to replace my soffit, fascia or eaves if I get my roof replaced?

Not necessarily, but if your soffit and fascia are damaged or compromised in certain spots, it is a good idea. Also, your eaves troughs and downspouts may be the same age as your old roof, and may need upgrading due to wear and tear. The professional team at A two Z Windows and Doors also specializes in exteriors such as roof replacement, siding and stucco. We’ve been replacing roofs for years and our team works with you to choose the right materials and colors that match your current situation. Cal us for details a 403-257-DOOR (3667).

What exactly do all these components do for my roof and house?

The soffit on your home’s exterior wraps around under the roof joints to allowing proper ventilation for your roof and attic.

Fascia is much like a trim, which horizontally caps the end of the rafters or gable ends (vertical face board). It can also add a nice finished look to your home’s exterior.  It also matches your siding which creates a unified design.  Our experienced staff can assist you in choosing a colour scheme that works with your current exterior colours and design.

As we are working on your roof replacement, the A two Z Windows & Doors exterior services team can identify if there are any issues related to the original installation of your soffit, fascia and eaves. We’ll make honest and trusted recommendations to promote quality ventilation from the soffit area so your home is maintained for years to come.
