While you may not have thought much about roof ventilation, it’s actually very important. Particularly in the hot Texas climate!
Here are a few significant benefits to roof ventilation:
Keep items in your attic safe
Chances are, your attic is packed with items like Christmas decorations, old furniture and family mementos. You may not use these things every day, but you probably don’t want them to be damaged by excess heat or moisture! Roof ventilation will keep them safe.
Save on AC bills
If your roof is poorly ventilated, your attic will become so hot that the heat seeps into the rest of your home. You’ll be sweating not only from the heat, but from the high cost of cooling your home. A properly ventilated roof reduces the stress on your air conditioner by lowering the overall indoor temperature.
Keep indoor temperatures consistent
Have you ever noticed that some rooms in your house are sweltering, while others stay cool? This could be a sign of a poorly ventilated roof. Have your roof ventilated and stay comfortable in every room in your house.
Extend the life of your roof
Condensation, which can result from poor ventilation, is a leading cause of damage to roofing materials like asphalt roofing shingles.
Stay compliant with local building codes
Many require you to properly ventilate the attic of your home.
