Proper attic ventilation helps extend the life of a roof. These systems function by pushing continuous, outside air into an attic in order to remove heat and moisture. Proper ventilation means your roof and attic stays cooler during summer months and prevents frost from building up beneath shingles in the winter. Attic ventilation will also extend the life of shingles and prevent roof rot and deterioration of a roof over time. Optimum attic ventilation reduces heat and cooling bills, prevents damages from the buildup of ice dams, improves air quality and lessens the potential for condensation buildup, which can lead to further issues with wood rot and ineffective insulation. If you are unsure whether your attic is properly ventilated, have an expert do an inspection.
