Roofman Shares the Warning Signs of Poor Attic Ventilation

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Are the rooms on your second floor unbearably hot in the summer?

Just as ventilation is important for comfort and air quality in the main living spaces of your home, it's important for your attic, too.

Let's take a look at warning signs of poor attic ventilation.

Poor Air Flow
Heat rises, and with a lack of ventilation, that heat gets trapped in your attic. In the summer, trapped heat can create unsuitable temperatures in your upstairs rooms, making it difficult to sleep in or use the rooms. On a 90° day, the temperature in your attic can reach 140° or more. Excessive heat puts your shingles at risk, leading to expensive repairs or replacement.

Ice Dams
Without proper ventilation, your attic won't be evenly heated. In the winter, you'll have warm air near the roof peak which can melt snow. As the melted snow travels downward to the eaves of the roof, it can refreeze against the cooler surface, this leads to ice damns. As water thaws, freezes, and expands it can damage your shingles and cause leaks.
