Your roof is a system of components that work together to safeguard your home from the elements. Many people think, however, that shingle materials are all that matter. This is a common misconception that may affect the performance of the entire roofing system in the long run. For instance, only a few recognize the importance of vents to their roof’s health.
Affordable Roofing Systems, a storm damage restoration company in the area, discusses why power-assisted roof vents are worthwhile investments.
The Importance of Roof Ventilation
Why is it necessary to ventilate your attic? Warm, moist air in your attic can damage the wood components, which can compromise the overall structural integrity of the roofing system. Mold and mildew growth are also common problems when the attic lacks outlets for ventilation.
To avoid these problems, install a balanced attic ventilation system that allows cool, fresh air to enter your attic while letting hot, moist air escape. This won’t only help keep your roof in good shape, but it can also maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without forcing your HVAC system to work twice as hard. Get in touch with your general and hail damage repair contractor to learn whether your attic has adequate ventilation, or if you need to make some adjustments.
Power-Assisted Roof Vents
Soffit and roof exhaust vents are not always enough to protect your home from heat buildup in your attic. You may need to install power-assisted roof vents to regulate air circulation. This type of ventilation system uses a motorized fan to suck hot air out of your attic and keep your interior cooler.
