A Guide to Soffit Metal Panels

[fa icon="calendar"] 01/19/2021 / by Kaylee Beattie

Soffit is a crucial part of your home or building’s roof. Without it, the attic wouldn’t get proper ventilation. Soffit panels are ideal for your home because of their durability, longevity, and aesthetic. We’re giving you the ultimate guide to soffit metal panels and the soffit types we offer at Bridger Steel.

Soffit Types - Types of Soffit

What Are Soffit Panels?

Soffit panels connect a roof’s overhang with the side of a building. They are installed in order to protect a structure from intruding animals and/or weather, as well as provide proper ventilation. The types of soffit panels needed vary from building to building. From v-stiffeners to reinforce durability to vented panels for added air circulation, there is a variation of soffit metal panels for all of the different types of buildings and homes on the market today.  

What Soffit Panel Profiles Are Available?

Bridger Steel has two different types of Soffit profiles available:

V Soffit

With vented or unvented options, our V Soffit is a versatile panel that can be used for more than just soffit purposes. This panel features a small, inverted v-rib in the center for added extra strength and uses a concealed fastener system for ultimate weather-tightness. While this panel is traditionally used for soffit and to create a clean look when finishing out roof eaves, we’ve also seen creative designers and builders use it for walls, fascia, and as liner panels. Its versatility makes it a favorite! Here are a few other need-to-know details about our V Soffit panel:

  • Vented or unvented options allows your to control airflow, which heats and cools attic spaces
  • Finished Coverage: 12”-18”
  • Stiffener Spacing: 6”
  • Panel Length: 10’ for 12” coverage or 20’ for 18” coverage
