Vinyl Soffits Make Final Piece of Installation

Soffits are often over- or under- looked. Their typical function is covering up the underneath side of eaves on homes. That sounds easy enough, but it's important that you use the right soffit to allow proper ventilation. Soffits can also make a huge difference in your home's appearance.

Choosing the Right Soffit

One major rule of thumb when installing soffits is that the wider the area is to be covered, the thicker and more rigid the soffit should be. Also, the soffits should allow more ventilation for better air flow.

Wood soffits may look better, but the benefits of vinyl soffits often outweigh that one negative. Vinyl soffits are:

  • Cheaper
  • Longer lasting
  • Easily cleaned
  • More versatile

Soffits can also be shaped to mimic wood or any other texture you may want. So, although wood is traditional, for those on a budget or trying to avoid blowing the kid's college fund on a remodel, vinyl soffits might be your best choice.

Installing Vinyl Soffit

The installation process for vinyl soffit is easier as well. To cut a soffit to fit a particular area, you don't need a band saw to do it; you can cut it with sheers or even score it with a razor. Another advantage is that vinyl soffits are much more flexible than wood and can be manufactured for just about any size or style of soffit.
