Roofing Ventilation

No comments

When it comes to your home, a good quality roof is one of the most important parts.  Proper ventilation is vital for the longevity of your roof.  Ventilation provides protection for both the exterior and interior of the home.  Having the right amount of roof ventilation is the key to a long-lasting roof.

Advantages of Roof Ventilation

  • There are different methods used in order to provide proper ventilation.  One of the most commonly used forms of ventilation used is Dormer Vents.  They are easy to install and can be installed in the back of the house, which makes them not stand out as much.
  • Having the proper attic ventilation can make the world of a difference.  The attic can reach unbearably hot temperatures in the summer.  This leads to hotter temperatures within the home as well as more air conditioning being utilized in order to combat these high temperatures.  With proper ventilation, these temperatures can be dramatically improved in the attic as well as inside the home.
  • Roof ventilation can fight against problems caused by water vapor.  There are various amounts of water vapor that your home produces each day.  Proper roof ventilation can prevent condensation from forming on the wooden boards of the roof.

 Problems Due to Poor Ventilation

  • Rust: Rust can form on any metal particles.
  • Mold: Mold can start to form in humid places causing various problems.
  • Shingle Problems: Shingles can start to crack as well as a loss of granules as a result of poor roof ventilation.
  • Higher Expenses: Without proper ventilation one’s air conditioning unit will have to be on more and work harder in order to bring down the heat from the attic.  In turn, this can put a lot of wear and tear on the unit and will shorten the lifespan of the unit itself.

One of the biggest investments one will make is in their home.  Having a good quality roof for your home is vital.  Proper roofing ventilation is extremely important for the longevity of one’s roof.  Jack the Roofer has been providing exceptional service for 18 years and can take care of all of your roofing needs.  From replacing to repairing due to ventilation problems, we provide quality service.
