Why Ventilate?

Heat in unventilated attics may cause temperatures to exceed 150⁰F. This can cause damage to shingles, roof sheathing, and also radiate down into the living area. Trapped moisture is a home’s #1 enemy and can cause rot, mildew, mold, paint blister, and ineffective insulation.

It is estimated that over 50% of homes show visible signs of improper ventilation.
Proper ventilation reduces energy bills and winter ice build up, and eliminates mold and mildew, which can lead to major health problems. Ventilating the attic space extends the life of shingles, insulation, and other building components.
