Importance of Attic Ventilation

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, lists the types of damage that can result from not having proper attic ventilation:
– Premature aging of your roofing system (“fried” shingles)
– Warping, cracking, or breaking down of wood framing
– Damage to siding, exterior or interior paint, and wallpaper

A properly ventilated attic can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving the super-heated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.

This photo shows a few different vent options to properly ventilate your attic. We are GAF Certified Roofing Contractors and can help you figure out the best way to ventilate your home.
