Signs of poor attic ventilation include:
Black Mold/Mildew– Black mold in the attic is a result of poor ventilation that causes excessive moisture buildup.
Water Stained Ceiling and/or Walls– Excessive moisture buildup in your attic can result in water stains and leaking inside your home.
Curling Shingles– If your poorly ventilated attic is experiencing extreme heat, your shingles may bake and start to curl up at the edges.
Extreme Heat– Without ventilation, attic temperatures can rise to levels in excess of 150 degrees in summer months. This can damage roofing materials. The warm air can also cause condensation to form and lead to water damage.
Ice Dams– If an attic is too warm in the winter, it will melt snow near the warmest parts of the attic but not in areas around the eaves. This creates ice dams where water can pool and begin leaking into the attic.
Roof Sagging– High humidity conditions from lack of ventilation can lead to wood rot and loss of of some structural integrity.
Frequent HVAC Breakdowns & Repairs– Warm air in the attic means that your air conditioner will have to work overtime to keep your house cool. This leads to extra wear and tear and may cause more frequent breakdowns.
Rust– Excessive moisture in the attic can lead to rust damage on HVAC components, roofing materials, and other metal systems.

Roof Repair Vs. Replacement: Which One Is Right for You?
The short answer is: Get your roof inspected.

What is the age of your roof? Asphalt roofs tend to last 15 years. They can reach 20 years if things like the weather are gentle.

Do you have a single leak or multiple leaks? Just one leak might mean there is a small area where shingles have been damaged. But multiple leaks is not a good sign.

How many shingles have issues?Are you noticing a small patch of damaged missing shingles? Or does it look like most of them have lost granules or are buckling?

New roofs can help with energy bills.If you are looking for ways to make your home more efficient, improved insulation and a well-designed ventilation system can help.

    I am so glad I found Gridiron Roofing. They were honest with their pricing and timeliness. They even used cost efficient approaches, that other companies would have increased the prices.
