3 Benefits of Aluminum Soffit and Fascia

Gentek's Eavestrough in white

Soffit and fascia are essential elements of a roofing system. Soffit sits discreetly underneath the rafters, while fascia is the exposed panel in front of the roof overhang where the eavestrough sits. 

When considering new soffit and fascia, look for the following traits:  

Low Maintenance 

Aluminum soffit and fascia are low maintenance products, designed with easy upkeep in mind. Unlike wood, aluminum won’t split, warp or rot from moisture exposure. The high-performance finish on Gentek aluminum soffit and fascia is designed to not blister, flake or peel. 


Soffit and fascia encourage air circulation to help reduce moisture from eaves and rafters. Aluminum is durable and built to withstand harsh weather conditions. The strength of aluminum can help deter insects and animals that take advantage of weak spots in the roofing system. Gentek soffit panels feature a distinctive v-groove design for extra strength and rigidity. 

Aluminum soffit and fascia are available in various colours and finishes to complement your home’s design. Aluminum fascia can often be smooth or ribbed to best suit your style, while soffit can be solid or vented.
