Soffits is the exposed aluminum siding underneath the roof’s overhang that connects the main walls of the house to the roof.
In terms of protection, soffit helps prevent water seepage and frost-thaw during the winter season. Another one of its functions is also stopping insects, small animals, and/or birds from making their way to infesting your attic.
While it is often not visible in terms of curb appeal, it is important that your soffit is up to date if you want to keep an aesthetically-pleasing, energy efficient home with a better resale value. Any exterior upgrades you make to your home improves your home's value and marketability, should you choose to sell.
