Why Proper Attic Ventilation Is Good for Your Roof

With attics out of sight, it’s not unusual for homeowners to forget about them, especially about their ventilation needs. This is unfortunate because proper attic ventilation is necessary in keeping your roof in top shape at all times, avoiding premature roof replacement.

But just what does attic ventilation do for a roof?

Properly installed, attic ventilation facilitates the continuous flow of air, drawing in cooler outdoor air while warmer indoor air is directed out. Aside from helping maintain temperature, proper attic ventilation also aids in preventing problems associated with moisture and humidity.

More specifically:

It Keeps Passive Heating at Bay 

Heat from the outside can cause attic temperatures to rise. This heat is then passed on to the rest of the home when attic floors are uneven and not adequately insulated. You avoid this when you have proper attic ventilation. 

Apart from helping you avoid high energy costs, keeping passive heating at bay can also help you prevent premature roof deterioration, allowing you to do away with roof damage repair. It is helpful as well in preventing ice dams, which occur due to the constant thawing and freezing that happens during winter.

It Normalizes Humidity Levels 

A highly humid environment is not just uncomfortable but it can be dangerous as well, weakening interior structural components as they absorb moisture from the air. Additionally, excessive moisture in attics creates an ideal environment for mold and mildew to thrive in. These are unsightly but can also be dangerous to your health. Fortunately, they can be avoided with proper attic ventilation.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
