Helping Homes Breathe Easy
Quality Edge designed, engineered and patented the most attractive and best performing soffit ventilation products in the industry. With proper ventilation, cool, dry air is drawn in through the soffit and replaces the hot damp air created in your attic.
When you look up at your roof, your soffit is staring back at you. That’s why your soffit color might be more important than your shingles. Whether color matching the roof trim or siding, Quality Edge soffit offers a variety of solid colors and wood grain options to create an overhand that makes a statement on your home.View soffit color Collection

Homeowners Benefits from Proper Ventilation
Building Healthier Homes
Attics need continuous ventilation at the eave edge through soffits to draw fresh air in and remove trapped hot and toxic air out through the roof exhaust vents. To accomplish a balanced ventilation system the intake must provide an NFA of 9 or greater on each side.

Indoor Air Quality
With improved building techniques and modern materials, today’s homes are built tighter than ever, which greatly improves energy efficiency. However, the unintended side effect is that fewer air exchanges take place with outdoor air, resulting in overall poorer indoor air quality.

Risks of Improper Ventilation
Homeowners understand the importance of having good ventilation that improves the indoor air quality of a home, since we spend 90% of our time indoors. In addition to the health risks that come from poor indoor air quality, there are risks to the materials on your home that could end up costing you thousands.
It’s often the things you don’t see that could cost you the most.
Most soffit designs don’t provide enough continuous NFA to work with roof exhaust requirements. This results in most homes not being properly ventilated; and roof manufactures won’t provide warranty coverage on homes without proper ventilation. Improper ventilation not only impacts the health and wellbeing of the homeowner but the health of the home. Without proper ventilation, warm attic air can become trapped and stagnate, lead to moisture and the formation of ice dams in winter.
