Matt Risinger: Bob, Good point about a less water sensitive soffit material. My clients wanted the wood soffit and wouldn't be talked out of it. So, I sealed the wood on all 6 sides prior to install and made sure to include a strip vent of cor-a-vent to ensure it had airflow in the cavity. It's been 3-4 years since this install with no leaks or wet wood to date. The Rain Escape is working perfectly. Best, Matt

Matt Risinger: Good question. I'm in Texas so freezing weather is rare. In general you want to install this so it's not holding water. If it's ponding and not draining then a freeze could hurt the system. Install it correctly and freezing won't be a problem. Matt

Bob Fox: Why install wood soffit with the high potential of leakage. (heavy downpour gutter overflow) Why not go with a high grade vinyl or aluminum soffit? Nice hiding the downspout in the column.

NicholasD Hazen: What happens with this system when things freeze up, thaw partially and freeze up again?
