The soffits on the Build the USA home were just completed, and what a difference soffits make. We picked our trim color prior to picking the color for the soffits (the soffits come pre-finished) and fortunately Mike Harman, from Aluminum by Mike, found American made soffit materials that matched the trim color perfectly. He also shared an interesting story regarding the staples used for the soffit track. Senco makes a variety of staple products, but their manufacturing locations vary for different sized staples. The 5/8″ staples were made in China, but the 3/4″ staples were made in the USA. Perfect. And thanks for the double checking, Mike.
The actual soffits themselves are made right here in Florida. Aluminum Coils, Inc., in business since 1989, manufactures both the soffit and channel in Tampa, FL.
Thanks to Aluminum by Mike for their great work! The exterior of the home looks nearly complete.
