What do the terms "fascia" and "soffit" refer to

The terms fascia and soffit refer to areas on the roof of a home. Fascia is the forward-facing area around the outside of a roof and can be seen from the street view. Soffit is the under-hanging area beneath the fascia and can be seen from the front yard or stoop area of a home.

So why are these terms important for people who are getting their windows renovated?

When renovating windows, it’s good to be aware of the fascia and soffit style and colour on your roof, so that you can choose windows that match. JELD-WEN vinyl windows are available in over 40 colours, and the combination of these elements make up the overall appearance of your home, which can improve curb appeal.
