What color should the soffit be?

White is standard for soffit and fascia, but you can buy them in a variety of colors. You should choose colors that will complement your siding and your home's overall look. Therefore, if you have navy blue siding, bright white soffit may not be the best choice.

Then, should I paint my soffit?

Wood soffits and fascia boards should be painted every three to five years to protect the wood from the elements. Unless your soffits and fascia trim are made of aluminum, the wood will eventually rot and deteriorate if neglected.

Also Know, how do you choose siding color? How to Choose a Siding Color

  1. The Color Wheel. It's important to consider the overall color scheme of your home, not just the siding color.
  2. Warm vs. Cool.
  3. Ask for Samples. Siding colors look different as the lighting changes throughout the day.
  4. Look at Your Neighbors.

Similarly one may ask, should kitchen soffit be painted same color as walls?

Some might say the same color as the trim. It depends. If your ceilings are textured, and the soffit is as well, then the soffit should match the ceiling. If the ceiling is textured and the soffit is not, then the soffit should be the wall color.

Can you paint fascia and soffit?

Even if you're not painting the gutters, you need to paint the fascia that supports it. Slipping the brush between the fascia and the gutters will not get the paint where you need it to protect the wood. To paint your home's soffits and eaves, you'll need to spend between 1 and 2 hours for every 25 linear feet.
