Let the leading roof replacement experts at Four Seasons Roofing, explain.


Attic Ventilation: How Does It Work?

This type of ventilation is more typical on steep-sloped asphalt roofs. It’s a system that creates a flow of air by exhausting it up the attic and out through the roof vents while allowing new air to enter through soffit vents.

The Characteristics of a Good Attic Ventilation System

Cooler attics in humid seasons and drier attics in the winter are the results of good attic ventilation. It also safeguards the home from material and structural damage.

Because your HVAC system works alongside your attic in managing the heat levels inside your home, a suitable attic ventilation system results in decreased energy bills for your home.

To get these incredible benefits, speak with your reputable roofing contractor about updating your attic ventilation.

Why Attic Ventilation is Important

Attic ventilation is critical for preventing ice dams in the winter and moisture damage in the summer, from collecting on your roof. If your attic ventilation isn’t working properly, heat and snow can cause considerable damage to your roof shingles.

Condensation, the major cause of roof deck expansion and buckling shingles, can be avoided with proper attic ventilation. Severe condensation can wreak havoc on your roof’s insulation and infiltrate deeper into your roofing system.
