Attic ventilation is one the most important components for extending the life of your roof and avoiding condensation and ice damming from forming. It’s important for your roof to have proper intake of air at the eaves soffits of your roof and the proper ventilation on top of your roof to remove the warm air and moisture and push the air outside. This is important to help your home stay cooler in the summer reducing air conditioning costs and will also prevent frost and ice dams from building up in the winter.
There are several different vents that are used today from dome vents, whirly birds, Maximum vents to ridge vents. Call McKay Roofing to find out which would work best for your home at 613-259-5766
