When you have a roofing project, there are a few key components that you need to be aware of – soffits and fascias are two of the most important. Here at CMAC Roofing, we’re DFW’s roofing and remodeling experts, and we’re here to help you understand everything you need to know about these two vital parts of your roof.

Soffits are the horizontal boards that sit underneath your roofline, and they play an important role in protecting your home from the elements. Fascias are vertical boards that sit on top of your roofline, and they help to support your gutters. Both soffits and fascias are important in making sure that your roof is able to do its job properly.

In addition to soffits and fascias, there are a few other key components of roofs that you should be aware of. Your roof deck is the layer of wood that sits on top of your home’s structure, and it provides support for your shingles. Your flashing is a waterproof barrier that helps to prevent water from seeping into your home, and it’s usually made out of metal or plastic. And finally, your gutters are what collect rainwater and direct it away from your home.

All of these components work together to keep your home safe from the elements. When you have a roofing project, it’s important to make sure that all of these components are in good condition – otherwise, you could be at risk for leaks or other damage. That’s where we come in. At CMAC Roofing, we’re experts in all things roofing, and we can help make sure that your roof is in tip-top shape. We’re also fully insured, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.
