Proper Roof Ventilation
Ventilation is a critical component of your roofing system. A complete system depends on proper attic air flow. Ventilation, which balances air intake and exhaust in your attic, is what allows your home to breathe. It disperses the moisture that can lead to deck rot, ice dams, mold, and mildew – not to mention less-than-comfortable conditions inside your home.

Roof and soffit vents increase the life of your shingles, lower cooling expenses in the summer, avoid ice dams in the winter, and stop mildew and decay by eliminating moisture buildup.
Four advantages of an attic with adequate ventilation:
- Prevents moisture buildup protecting the framework and sheathing of your roof from rot and mildew growth.
- Keeps your roof colder in the winter to help prevent ice dams.
- Keeps the roof cooler in warmer weather to help the lifespan of your shingles.
- Helps lower summertime cooling expenses.

Roof Ventilation and Attic Insulation Work Together
Roof attic ventilation is different from attic insulation. Insulation helps maintain the temperature of your attic, while ventilation keeps the air moving. They work together to make your attic’s air constant! How can you tell if a home needs more attic insulation? Learn More About Attic Insulation
