Avoid These Issues With Proper Attic Ventilation

Attic ventilation is more important than you might think. As we go about our daily activities in our homes, like washing the dishes, doing the laundry and showering, moisture can rise up and accumulate in the attic. When there’s insufficient ventilation in the attic, the moisture can become trapped. Likewise, excess heat in the attic cannot escape.

In this post, siding repair experts discuss the potential problems arising from improper attic ventilation.

Short Roof Life

Excess heat and moisture can cause your roof decking to rot. Excess heat due to inadequate ventilation and insulation can shorten the lifespan of the underlayment and roof shingles.

If your roof becomes damaged and the damage isn’t addressed immediately, this could lead to problems in other areas of your home. You might even end up having to schedule a siding repair along with your roof repair or replacement.

Mold & Mildew

A warm, moist environment has the perfect conditions for mold and mildew growth. In addition to being unsightly, mold and mildew can cause damage in your attic, as well as respiratory problems to your family.

Rust 

Moisture can cause nails and fasteners to rust, which in turn can undermine your roof.

Overworked Air Conditioning

Improper ventilation coupled with inadequate insulation can cause warm air to become trapped in your attic. This will make your AC work extra hard to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home.

Avoid all these problems by working with an experienced roofing contractor who understands how the entire roofing system works. A&A Services Home Improvement will take care of your attic ventilation and roofing problems, and we also provide siding repair, window replacement and door installation
