Home ventilation extends the life of your attic and roof structure, saving hundreds in repair costs.
Ventilation might seem like a minor consideration, but when properly installed, it can extend the life of your attic and roof structure saving you hundreds of dollars in repair costs. During warmer months, ventilation helps keep attics cool. It helps prevent hot, moist summer air from warping the roof sheathing. It also stops shingles from deteriorating prematurely. What's more, fresh air in the attic makes a home much easier to cool, which can result in lower energy costs. In winter months, ventilation helps reduce moisture to keep attics dry. It stops water from backing up under shingles, damaging insulation, and rotting the roof structure itself.
