What Is the Purpose of Soffits in Your Home?

The soffit is the flat panel that covers the underside of the rafters between the back of the fascia and the outside of the house wall. Soffit comes from the Latin word “suffixus” meaning “fixed underneath”, which perfectly describes where a soffit is located in your home. It’s not made to stand out or be flashy, but exterior soffit has its role nevertheless.
