Do You Need Handyman Services for Your Home’s Exterior?

Your home’s exterior needs to withstand the natural elements. From harsh hailstorms to pesky pests, you need to keep the interior of your home safe with exterior protective materials, such as soffit, fascia, and siding.

What’s the Difference Between Soffit, Fascia, & Siding? 

Soffit, fascia, and siding often go unnoticed by the average person. As a homeowner, knowing the difference between each part of your home’s exterior is useful. Each component serves a special protective purpose, keeping your home safe from many sources of harm. You should seek siding, fascia, or soffit repair services at the first sign of damage. Some difference between each of these materials includes the following: 

  • Siding – Siding covers the exterior walls of your home. It can be made from many different materials, such as vinyl, aluminum, or fiber cement. The purpose of siding is to shield your home from wind, rain, hail, harsh UV rays, and other sources of damage.  
  • Soffit – You have probably noticed that part of your roof extends past the wall of your home. Soffit is placed underneath this lip between the edge of the roof and the wall. This material can also be placed underneath porch overhangs. It is often made from aluminum or composite materials, like vinyl or UPVC.  
  • Fascia – While the soffit goes under the lip of your roof, the fascia sits at a right angle to your roof. Fascia often covers the gap between your soffit and your roof, preventing water or pests from getting inside your home. It is manufactured using vinyl, aluminum, PVC, fiber cement, or even wood.  

How Does a Home’s Exterior Become Damaged? 

Soffit, fascia, and siding serve similar purposes, protecting your home from potential sources of damage. However, they protect them in different areas of your home’s exterior. There are countless ways that your home exterior can become damaged. No matter the source of the damage, Mr. Handyman of NE Raleigh to Clayton Area can offer you effective siding, soffit, and fascia repair services.

FAQs About Our Repairs 

Homeowners often have questions about repairing the exteriors of their homes. It’s normal to have questions about any home repair. Mr. Handyman of NE Raleigh to Clayton Area is happy to answer all the questions you have. To make your experience easier, we have provided a few common questions below that we often hear from clients.  

Can You Repair Minor Damage to My Siding? 

We absolutely can! Home siding frequently gets dinted, dinged, punctured, cracked, and warped. When your siding is damaged, our siding repair team will inspect the damage and explain your repair options. Some repairs are as simple as filling in a hole and painting over it. Others may require us to replace a section of your siding. We will work closely with you to create a repair plan that will satisfy you.  

Do You Repair Aluminum Siding, Soffit, or Fascia? 

Yes! We repair all kinds of siding, soffit, and fascia. Depending on the type of home exterior you have, we may need to use different repair tactics. Aluminum is an especially durable material, and it holds paint well. So, filling holes and patching cracks is often an effective solution. There are some cases where replacing a section of siding makes more sense, though.  

How Do You Repair Holes in Siding, Soffit, or Fascia? 

Repairing holes in siding, soffit, or fascia requires high levels of skill and expertise. For small damage, such as dents, dings, and holes, we can fill the damaged area with caulk or some other filler. Then, once it has had time to set, we can paint over it to make the damaged section blend with the surrounding color. If the damage is extensive, your best option may be to replace a section of your home exterior.
