4. Install Roof Ventilation
Your roofing underlayment may heat up in summer if it’s overly warm. This could cause it to crack or become inefficient. The lack of airflow can cause a buildup warm and damp air, which could cause major damage to the roof. Ventilated roofs will help to secure your house’s foundation and will extend the longevity of your roofing structure. Certain asphalt shingles manufacturers offer warranties that permit them to cancel the warranty if there’s not enough ventilation in the attic. For the purpose of validating the terms of warranty the attic must have sufficient ventilation.
Ventilated roofs may also lower temperatures in attics and ceilings, as well as ductwork. This will help to reduce the load on your air conditioning. This means that you’ll see a substantial decrease in your cooling expenses. If the heat from your heating system for your winter house doesn’t work properly, heat may build up over the roof’s surface, melting snow, and then freezing it. This is known as an ice damming.
Ice dams could pose a threat to the roofing. They could cause harm to your roof like the loss of gutters or shingles. It is possible to avoid the risk that ice will dam up on your roof by ensuring that there is adequate ventilation. Ask a specialist roofer to assess your roof’s condition and decide how ventilation could be improved.
