If you’ve opted for stucco over traditional home siding, then it’s probably no surprise that it might take a bit of extra care to protect that beautiful exterior. This is often where quality soffit and fascia come into play, as both will help keep your exterior looking vibrant and minimize the need for stucco repairs. However, it can often be difficult to determine what material works best, so the professionals from Do-All Stucco & Stone have collected some insight for you here.
If you want to ensure your home’s stucco looks its best, here are some tips for choosing the right soffit and fascia.
Fascia is most often fashioned from aluminum or vinyl, both of which have their advantages. Vinyl is often easier to care for and stands up well in the elements; aluminum can be stronger and more durable, as well as give your home a different look.
Soffit is made out of wood, vinyl, and aluminum, providing several options for those who want to protect their stucco exterior. When looking to capture a more rustic look, wood soffit is a great option, although it often requires a little bit of extra work to prevent it from fading or rotting. However, regular painting and sealing will ensure it looks great year round. If you want to forgo the rustic look for some added protection, vinyl and aluminum are great alternatives.
Many choose to go with the traditional white-colored soffit and fascia, but there’s no shortage of others available for more design-savvy, stucco homeowners. Just make sure that whichever color you choose complements your existing exterior design scheme. Consulting a stucco design expert might also provide some insight into what will work best.
Although fascia isn’t ventilated (this is to prevent water from entering) soffit can be installed with, or without ventilation. Quite often many choose to invest in ventilated soffit to provide ample airflow throughout the attic. However, if airflow isn’t necessary for one reason or another, traditional soffit may be an option. Working with an experienced home contractor will provide you with the most affordable materials and best results.
