Roofing Ventilation & Safety

Proper ventilation is a key piece of roofing safety and a proper roofing system - contributing to a lasting installation and a healthy family. Poor attic ventilation can ruin your insulation, destroy your shingles, raise your energy bills and risk your family’s health.

Examples of damage that can result from improper roofing ventilation include:
  • Premature aging of your roofing system (“fried” shingles)
  • Warping, cracking, or breaking down of wood framing
  • Roof deck warping and delamination
  • Damage to siding, exterior or interior paint, and wallpaper
  • Higher energy costs
  • Streaking, staining, and mildew growth
  • Buckling of shingles and felt
  • Roof and interior damage from ice dams
  • Added stress to heating and cooling systems
