The Soffit itself is normally made from uPVC or Plywood, but can also be made from any other material.
The Fascia is the vertical board that is attached to the rafter ends, usually at the same level as the Soffit.
It is used to support the guttering and provides a neat finish between the roof and the walls.
Usually, the Fascia is made from uPVC, but can also be made from other materials such as timber or aluminium.
It is important to note that the Fascia and Soffit should be made from the same material, to ensure they look consistent and neat.
The main difference between the two is that the Fascia is the visible board on the outside of the house, while the Soffit is hidden away.
The Soffit is important to allow ventilation to the roof, and the Fascia is important to provide a neat finish and support the guttering.
