Home Soffit Repairs
If the eaves and gable overhangs of your house are soffited, they can be susceptible to water damage. Improper flashing, damaged shingles, ice dams, and faulty gutters can all contribute to the issue and overtime, rot can occur and then spread quickly because the wood stays soggy inside the space. You don’t see the damage until the real problems begin.
Another fun soffit fact: animals love damages soffits. Squirrels, birds and mice love soffits as nesting spaces because the rot makes for easy access and the soffit itself is a safe covered space to sleep and/or raise young. Hornets and bees also frequent soffits, so if you see them frequenting your soffits, it might be time to call an exterminator to check it out. Our crew thanks you in advance for calling the exterminator first if you suspect an issue with insect nests.
Soffit repair can vary depending on the damage, but as a basic explanation, we remove the soffit itself, and check for any damage to underlying structures like the rafters. If there is damage there, we will make you aware of the issue and can refer you to an expert carpenter if you need. Once the internal repair is done then we attach the new soffit and you’re ready for paint.
If you think your soffits are in need of repair, give us a call at 216-255-5134 or send us a message and we’ll be happy to come out and take a look.
