Soffit in architecture, describes the underside of any construction element. Examples of soffits also include the underside of an arch or supported by piers or columns. In popular use, soffit most often refers to the material forming a ceiling from the top of an exterior house wall to the outer edge of the roof, i.e., bridging the gap between a home's siding and the roofline, otherwise known as the eaves. Soffit exposure profile (from wall to fascia) on a buildings' exterior can vary from 2-3 inches to 3 feet depending on construction. It can be non-ventilated or ventilated for cooling non livable attic space.
Fascia is a term which generally describes any vertical surface which spans across the top of columns or across the top of a wall. Specifically, used to describe the vertical "fascia board" which caps the end of rafters outside a building, which can be used to hold the gutter. The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is called the soffit. In classical architecture, the fascia is the plain, wide band across the bottom of the entablature, directly above the columns.
