Gutters and Downspouts
In architecture, soffits refer to the material forming the underside of an element in construction. In home remodeling projects, soffits describe the formation of a ceiling from the top of an exterior house all to the outer edge of the roof. This bridges the gap between homes’ siding and roofline, which is also known as the eaves. During construction, the soffit material is normally nailed or screwed to rafters, which are called lookout rafters. A soffit can be implemented on: • The underside of an arch or architrave, which may be supported by columns • The underside of a staircase • The underside of a projecting cornice • The underside of a chimney • The underside of a ceiling to fill in the space of kitchen cabinets • The exposed under surface of any exterior overhanging section of a roof eave. • A construction element used to mount a kitchen ventilation hood under a high or sloped ceiling. The use of gutters, soffits, and downspouts can be implemented to match the décor and style of your home’s exterior.
