The eave and soffit are, separately, the vertical and even surfaces of what a great many people allude to as being the overhang or the rooftop shade of a home.
The upper piece of the sash, at the crossing point with the rooftop, has a nonstop metal “trickle strip” running along it, the base edge of which is bowed far from the belt. This helps bring about water running off the rooftop to dribble off the lower edge as opposed to it running down the sash.
The soffit commonly has some type of ventilation openings, either little screen board embeds or punctures for the ventilation of the loft. Likewise, most soffit get-togethers have an aluminum cladding to shield the wood underneath from dampness and decay.
