Roof ventilation is a very important part of house roofing. Without proper roofing ventilation, it could lead to the breaking down of ice dams and vents could malfunction and could result to early damage of roof ventilation. And when roof vents are not in good condition, it would soon lead to deterioration of the house itself and the house structure.

The importance of roof ventilation

When you have adequate roof ventilation, your roof will last longer and could reach its years of warranty or even more. If you have insubstantial ventilation, your roof's life expectancy will be shorter because the heat in the attic can be the cause of early deterioration.

When the heat escapes from the structure, it will melt the snow even if the temperature outside are freezing. And when it does, it creates ice dams and the snow which was already melted would pass through the roof and would refreeze causing the water at the roof gets obstructed by ice dams. It will then build up and gets to the roofing shingles which causes leaks inside the house.
