Without them in place, the attic and framework of your home would be exposed to all of the environmental elements – and this is never a good thing. They work together to protect your home and therefore they can be confused in terms of which one does what. The fascia is the vertical board running along the eve of your home. The gutters will attach to the fascia. The soffit is the horizontal board running along the bottom edge of the fascia and butts up against the side of the home.

In today’s market, the various homebuilders do not enclose the soffit and fascia, and this allows all of the wood to be exposed to what Mother Nature offers.
