Installing spotlights is easier than you think!

The work on the roof is almost complete and I was faced with another question: how to arrange the eaves of the roof. My choice fell on the vinyl soffit of the Döcke trademark. What is soffit? What materials are there in general for filing cornices? How to install spotlights with your own hands? What tools are needed? In order about everything.

Which material should I choose for filing?

20 years ago, I helped my father to hem the cornice of his house. We had to do everything with our own hands. When decorating the cornice, a perforated metal sheet was used, "mined" at some factory for "liquid currency" from the local Mikhalych. Fortunately for me, the choice of materials today is limited only by the amount of money spent on work and materials or is dictated by the look that is planned to give the house.

The construction market is represented by already known materials such as edged board, lining, metal corrugated board, plastic or metal siding. The main disadvantage of wood, I consider the need to use paint. Metal sheeting is afraid of condensation.

Siding siding of spotlights and wind boards

Soffit has been gaining popularity lately. Translated from Italian, the word soffit is the downward-facing surface of a ceiling beam, arch, outrigger cornice or other architectural details, often having decorative processing. Thus, the siding used in the design of the eaves of the roof got its name. These are panels with a special perforated or solid structure. Perforation promotes free air circulation and ventilation of the roof space.

Why did I choose vinyl:

  • It is lightweight and easy to install. And when you work with your own hands, you don't want to carry weights;
  • This, despite its lightness, is a very durable material. In addition, it does not rot and is not afraid of direct sunlight;
  • Does not need care. The coating will not fade;
  • Off. Not afraid of fungus or mold. I didn’t believe it, and tried a small piece myself with a lighter.
  • Widest color gamut. I chose the “delicious” chocolate one.

Döke Extrusion is a recognized leader in the roofing materials market. The products are simply called "Decke" or "Decke". The advantage of Deck over other brands is the highest quality. As a result, the warranty period has been extended to 50 years! For me personally, it is pleasant to know that for the next 50 years I will not have to deal with the eaves of the roof of my house.
