Soffit lining with CEDRAL


What is soffit lining and what materials to choose?

Soffit lining or filling of underside of eaves with soffit means installation of finish materials under the eaves of a roof.  When choosing soffit lining, it is important to take into consideration the durability of aesthetic appearance of materials. Soffit lining is installed in hard-to-reach areas. These are usually areas which occur are at great heights. For this reason, maintenance of soffit lining becomes complicated. It is, therefore, recommended to use those finish materials which guarantee that the initial appearance of materials will be long-lasting and will not require re-painting. The material has to be resistant to water and, as recommendable, fire resistant.
