Ventilation is key to prolonging the overall lifespan of your roofing system – all through the year. For example, attic ventilation plays a key role in ensuring that your roof doesn’t develop ice dams. Ice dams are dangerous for multiple reasons. For one, ice dams cause water to back up onto your roof, which can cause leaks and moisture damage.
There are many types of roofing vent options available to you. At A&A Services Home Improvement, we install ridge vents. Ridge vents run along the peak of the roof and provide uniform cooling throughout the entire roof deck. They blend in with your roofline, making them more attractive than other types of vents.
The experienced installers at A&A Services Home Improvement are happy to guide you to the best type of roof vent as well as ensure that your attic has the right amount of ventilation.
As mentioned, attic ventilation helps prevent ice dams from forming in the winter. It also keeps your roof cool during the summer. Proper ventilation can keep your attic a constant temperature, which helps remove hot air, decreasing the chance of mold growth. Also, venting hot attic air to the outside protects your roof, especially your shingles. Too much heat can compromise your roof system, causing shingles to buckle and potentially resulting in roof failure.
