How Can I Tell If I Have Damaged Soffits in Nashville?

A person is installing new soffits on a roof.

Centennial Roofing has been inspecting, repairing, and replacing residential roofing in Nashville for many years. Our team of qualified and licensed roofing professionals can inspect your roof, provide a detailed report of your roof’s condition, advise you of any damage, and make repairs as needed. One part of your roof that can become damaged is the soffit.

What is a soffit?

The soffit refers to any finishing material, either wood or fiber cement, that is installed to cover the underside of a roof’s overhang.

What does a soffit do?

The soffit functions both aesthetically and functionally. Aesthetically it finishes the roof, and functionally it serves as a barrier to protect the rafters from the elements. Keeping moisture away from the rafters reduces the chance of mold, and the soffit helps preserve the materials’ life.

How can I tell if my soffit is damaged?

You can visually inspect your home’s soffit by walking around the outside of your house and looking up. Signs of soffit damage include cracks, gaps, or holes in the soffit material, and signs of sagging or drooping may indicate water damage.
