Soffits and Vents

Like a roof deck, soffits should be inspected for damage, cracks, weaknesses and deteriorated material. Building standards for soffits have changed for high-wind prone areas and you should check with your local building department to verify current standards. When strengthening the roof-to-wall anchors, you will have to remove the soffits, and it will be the perfect time to replace the soffits and ensure proper installation.”
