When finishing the siding of your home there are many types of decorative exterior molding and trim you can use, including gingerbread trim, dentil molding, brackets or a gable pediment. It is best to choose trim that complements the architectural look and style of your house.
Two essential elements that are often forgotten are the Fascia and Soffit. Fascia is the horizontal "fascia board" which caps the end of rafters on the outside edge of a roof. Soffit, or eave, is the finished surface below the fascia and rafters.
The Soffit and Soffit Vent are a critical part of your home’s ventilation plan. From moderating temperature extremes to controlling moisture in attic spaces, Soffit makes your home comfortable by venting moisture from your attic, and also provides a clean, finished look to the underside of your eaves.
The Fascia is the exposed horizontal band you see at the end of the rafters. This architectural element found along the eave area does more than just add visual interest and give a finished look to your home. It helps protect the exterior of your house by keeping out pests like bats, birds and squirrels, and give you a way to disguise ventilation for your attic.
