In construction, a soffit vent is a type of ventilation opening installed in the underside of the eaves or overhang of a building’s roof. Its primary function is to facilitate the exchange of air between the attic or roof space and the exterior environment.

Soffit vents are typically designed as small openings or perforated panels in the soffit material, allowing air to flow into the attic or roof cavity. This airflow helps to regulate temperature and humidity levels, prevent moisture buildup, and reduce the risk of condensation and mold growth.

By providing proper ventilation, soffit vents play a crucial role in promoting the longevity of the roof structure and preventing damage caused by moisture-related issues. They are often installed in conjunction with other types of roof vents, such as ridge vents or gable vents, to ensure adequate airflow throughout the attic or roof space.
