Poor Attic Ventilation Can Ruin Your Insulation, Destroy Your Shingles and Raise Your Energy Bills

  • It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes in North America do not have proper attic ventilation
  • In the summer, improper ventilation can cause attic heat to build in excess of 160° F
  • Improperly ventilated attics allow moisture to collect and cling to the underside of the roof
  • Additional damage can include roof deck warping or rotting, and mold growth
  • In the winter, attic ventilation can help prevent moisture buildup, which helps prevent wood rot, mold, mildew and poor indoor air quality
  • Manufacturers require proper venting to validate their warranty. New shingles are more watertight and trap in more moisture.

The Mold Factor

  • A large percent of mold is caused by inadequate attic ventilation
  • A 300% increase in the asthma rate over the past 20 years has been linked to mold
  • Who are most likely to be affected by mold? Children, the elderly, pregnant women, people with respiratory conditions and allergies, as well as, those with weakened immune systems.
