A good ventilation system is important to help minimize heat buildup in the summer as well as moisture and ice dam formation in the winter. Keep your attic in a state of equilibrium all year-round by calling FineLines Roofing & Renovations to install or improve your existing attic ventilation system.
Tell-Tale Signs of Poor Ventilation
Inspect your attic and look for signs of improper ventilation such as black wood from years of moisture buildup or frost visible on the underside of the roof deck. Lack of intake ventilation can cause serious condensation problems which will eventually rot the wooden roof deck making your roof structurally unsafe.
A well-built roof should maintain the outside temperature while keeping the moisture out.
Bring Your Attic up to Code
As part of FineLines Roofing & Renovations attic ventilation service, we may need to install baffles (also known as wind baffles) which allow air to flow through various parts of your attic. Insulation also plays a vital role in an attic ventilation system. Shifted or misplaced insulation does not protect from drafts and creates spaces for air to travel and moisture to become trapped.
To find out if your ventilation system is up to code, contact FineLines Roofing & Renovations for an attic inspection today.
