Attic Ventilation is critical to maintaining the lifespan of your roof. This is one of the biggest problems when it comes to roofing problems. A lot of the time it is mistaken for a roof leak that needs to be repaired. It is common to see such a large buildup of condensation that imitates a roof leak. In addition, the attic becomes a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and other forms of bacteria that erode at the materials.
Prevent Mold, Bacteria, & Dry Rotting
A common problem is the dry rotting of plywood, reducing the lifespan of the roof by over 50%. The adhesives in the plywood begin to deteriorate and dry rot. Humid climates also cause metal to begin to rust, including plumbing pipes, and HVAC ducting material to degenerate and crash. In addition, the trapped heat and moisture will go as far as to damage any valuables you have in the attic.Ventilation is an absolute necessity as it minimizes the temperature differential between the outdoors and inside the attic. You want the temperature to be as similar as possible which is why proper attic insulation is also required. This is another service that we offer and is highly recommended to save up to 50% on your heat and air conditioning bill. In cold weather, ventilation is also important otherwise frost is created causing dry rot. It is also the common cause of ice dams as the water warms up and refreezing making your roof more susceptible to cracks and leaks.
