It’s easy to forget about your roof. After all, unless the roof is leaking or parts are blowing off the house, your roofing system performs its job in relative silence. Still, even the most undemanding part of your home benefits from proper venting.
Any roofing contractor will tell you that installing the proper attic roof vents for your house has many benefits. Some of the most significant plusses include (1) increased air circulation, (2) a dryer attic, (3) decrease in mold, (4) reduced attic temperature in hot climates and warmer attic temperatures in cold climates.
Many Florida homeowners find that an effective roof venting system results in decreased energy costs. Indeed, Energy Star notes that vents contribute to an energy-efficient home. You can achieve the best results if your home also includes attic insulation.
Along with a more environmentally friendly dwelling, roof vents also help your roof to function at a high level for years into the future. One of the biggest foes to roof longevity, for example, happens when moisture gets underneath the roofing materials. Well placed vents help to keep the area underneath the surface of your roof dry and sturdy.
