Why Proper Ventilation in your Attic Is So Important

We wrote earlier about how to properly ventilate your attic, but did not go into the specifics of why it is so important. This is covered very well in an article recently published at EverybodyNeedsARoof.com. This informative piece explains several ways that proper ventilation is beneficial including:


    • It removes excess moisture from attics
    • It prevents condensation, which can damage roof sheathing
    • It helps to prevent the formation of ice dams
    • It reduces attic air temperatures in the summer
    • It may be necessary to qualify for warranties on asphalt shingles
