The Importance of a Functioning Roof Ventilation System

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016 - Post by Pond1920

ventWhen was the last time you answered this question: is my roof ventilation system in good working order?

If you have never addressed this topic, there is a chance that your system is not working as it should. Or worse yet, it’s possible you don’t have any roof ventilation at all.

This is extremely important to the well being of your home, as a roof ventilation system prevents heat and moisture from building up in the attic.

While some homeowners think this is only important during the summer, it’s actually necessary 365 days a year. Here is why:

·      During the summer, trapped heat can make its way into the main living area, making the top floor of the home more difficult to cool. Too much attic heat can also cause damage to various roof components.

·      During the winter, proper ventilation draws out moisture, helping prevent mildew and mold.

Are you concerned that your roof ventilation system is not functioning at it should? Rather than hope that something changes, contact us to setup an inspection. Soon enough, you will have an answer to this question.
