How Attic Ventilation Boosts Roof Condition and Security

Attic ventilation may seem like it's only important in colder countries and climates, but it's a necessity if you want to ensure that your home's largest structure remains healthy and secure throughout the year. West Side Roofing's roofing contractors discusses the importance of attic ventilation in boosting roof condition and security.

How Attic Ventilation Boosts Roof Condition and Security

Ventilation and Roof Health

Proper ventilation in your attic space is key to ensuring the health of your roofing system – particularly if it's made from materials like asphalt and metal. The proper flow of air is beneficial in a sense that it ensures that the attic is cool during summer and keeps it from drying out during summer.

Lack of ventilation puts your roof at risk of elemental damage, especially when the weather is pushing to the extremes. Improper ventilation during summer will cause the roof the dry and crack, and even negatively affect the structural integrity of your roofing. On the other hand, lack of ventilation during winter puts your roof at risk since it's more likely to develop ice dams.

Lack of Ventilation Can Reduce Roof Lifespan

Asphalt shingles have an average operating life span of 15 to 20 years, while metal roofing lasts for around 50 years. This, however, is the average life span if the roof is properly ventilated. Without proper ventilation, the roof can have a  shorter operating life span since it becomes more susceptible to wearing, elemental damage, and general disrepair. With proper ventilation, the shingles on your roofing are more secure, and they won't get worn down easily.
