Roof Ventilation Services

Ridge Ventilation in process.

Your rooftop needs to breathe. Your home has to endure a lot of drastic temperature shifts and weather conditions throughout the year.

As the years weather upon your home you may find yourself with a myriad of issues, but ventilation is easily overlooked as the cause.

Simply put, without proper ventilation, your roof will not breathe properly during the winter, hence it will melt a layer of snow, which runs downward, and refreezes at the overhang.

This means you now have a thicker portion of ice and it's building up constantly over the course of the winter months.
This is known as an Icedam.

Icedamming can accelerate the natural wear and tear upon your roof.

In short, it is important to ensure that your roof is properly ventilated.

 

Within the summer months, it is also important for your roof to breathe properly.

Excessive heat in your attic caused by the sun needs to escape through proper ventilation to allow your roofing materials to last their lifespan. 

The ventilation of your roof has an effect on your heating/cooling costs in your house, as well as the longevity of the roofing materials used.
