Energy Efficient Soffit and Fascia
What do new or clean soffit vents and fascia have to do with energy efficiency? After all, don’t soffits allow air to flow freely into a home’s attic? In the wintertime isn’t this counterproductive?
The answer is no, and it may surprise some as to why: keeping an attic cold is important, because when the attic’s cold, there’s less of a chance of an ice jam, and this constant circulation of air in from the soffit, in combination with the use of proper insulation, keeps these areas of the home well-vented, and circulating properly.
Heat trapped in the attic can cause a moisture buildup, or a warm pad on the underside of the roof where snow melts and refreezes, causing an ice dam. Also, in the summer, this free exchange of cold air allows the heat trapped within the house to vent out.
So soffit and fascia play a crucial part in the energy efficiency of any home, and also help keep the home from being damaged by mother nature. It’s a tie-in between the roof and the siding. Then why is it that soffits are so often overlooked as a vital component on a home?
Lynnrich Siding carries soffit and gutters which are entirely seamless, integrating into the design of the home. Older gutter systems rely on a spike and ferrule method to hang in place, and often this has in invasive look on a modern home’s design.
Lynnrich’s gutters are manufactured on site, meaning that they are built as custom as is possible. Also, the spike and ferrule method of hanging rain gutters, often leaves gutters looking sagged after a few years of use, but a seamless rain gutter is hung on the home with a much greater support, which virtually all but eliminates sagging.
This makes a soffit, fascia, & gutter system from Lynnrich all but maintenance free! Also, Lynrrich carries a full color assortment for both soffit and fascia and rain gutters to match any home’s exterior.
