Poor Attic Ventilation: Big Problems
A lot of homeowners are unaware of the importance of having proper attic ventilation, to the point that they tend to take it for granted. First, without a proper ventilation system running in your attic, your home’s insulation will be hampered, opening a list of potential problems that could affect your roofing systems.
During summer, poor attic ventilation can lead to temperature rising for up to 160°F. This, in turn, will penetrate the insulation and affect your roofing system. The heat may cause your shingles to crack, warp, break, and age prematurely. Moreover, it can extend its impact on your walls, siding, and interior paint.’
On the other hand, having poor attic ventilation can also negatively affect your house during winter. Certain household appliances like your showers, bathtubs, heaters, and cooking vapors from the kitchen can generate moisture buildup, which could reach the underside portion of the roof. As a result, the moisture can cause warping and rotting on the wood frame and promote the growth of mold and mildew, which are harmful to your family’s health.
