Did you know that a proper roof system involves much more than just roof shingles being installed?
Well it does, and this article should help you understand a major component that is needed to make up a successful roof installation. That component is “VENTILATION”.
In the warmer regions it’s kind of the opposite. We want the ventilation system to keep air flowing out of the attic, keeping the hot air circulating out through the vents in the top of the roof.
Hot air rises so what happens is that air is brought in through the lower vents and expelled out the top, creating a type of flow that does not allow for moisture building.
Think of it like a glass of water, cold water on the inside of the cup and the warmer air on the outside. What happens? Condensation happens. Well, in a roof system the same thing goes on if it is not properly vented.
Proper attic Ventilation plays a massive role in keeping your valuable roof from costing you even more money down the road from issues occurring inside and outside of the home.
Here at All County Roofing we make sure that we always discuss proper roof ventilation with the homeowners before the start of a project, informing them of two most important factors.
Without air coming in, no air will go out!
