A New Roof is an investment in your valuable home. In the Bay Area, home values are such that it makes sense to hire a quality installer using quality products. A new roof is designed to last 30 years and adds more than aesthetic value to your home. Venting is perhaps the most crucial component to its longevity.
ROOF VENTING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION YOU WILL MAKE FOR YOUR NEW ROOF
Proper Roof Venting is vital. If a roof is not adequately vented, it could lead to mold, mildew, dry rot, and other issues that will lead to costly repairs. Most homes that are over 25 years old are not properly vented.
Over the last 20 years, building contractors have come to realize the importance of proper venting the consequences of not doing the job right. Venting is an essential aspect of installing and weatherproofing a new roof.
It is vital to work with a roofing contractor such as Clean Roofing. We are always up-to-date on the latest advancements and technology. We remain current through classes, seminars, and certifications that assure we maintain the highest level of knowledge and standards.
RISING HEAT AND TRAPPED MOISTURE CAN CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS
In your basic science class, you learn hot air rises. As air is heated, it expands and becomes less dense, and like oil in water, will start to float to the top. In your home, the attic is the highest point in the house, so all that hot air gathers there and becomes trapped. Without proper ventilation, the temperature inside of an attic can reach 100 degrees or more.
The heat and moisture in the air can be very damaging and cause your roof to prematurely deteriorate taking years of life off the roof of your home. Proper Attic Ventilation allows the heat and moisture to escape instead of getting trapped in your attic and protects, your roof, and everything it is covering, including your home, and everything inside of it, including your family.
