Attic Ventilation & Insulation
When considering a new roof, people often overlook the attic. In fact, attics are essential to the performance and maintenance of healthy roofs. At Antonyshyn Roofing we provide expert attic evaluations and install ventilation and insulation into attics in the Winnipeg area.
Ensuring your attic is properly ventilated involves more than simply adding vents near the peak of the roof. In reality attic ventilation involves two factors—intake and exhaust. The soffit near the floor of the attic allows the intake of air, while the exhaust vents at the top of the roof are meant to expel air, creating a constant airflow.
When evaluating your attic we observe the intake and exhaust vents to assess whether you require improved venting to prevent problems caused by heat and moisture. The amount of venting required depends on the square footage of your attic space.
The Benefits of Good Attic Ventilation and Insulation
During the summer, good attic ventilation allows hot air to escape the attic, which helps get rid of harmful moisture which can damage the roofing materials. The insulation below the attic ensures that the heat does not transfer downward into the house.
During the winter, a good airflow keeps the attic cool, preventing ice damming—this is when snow and ice on the roof melts and refreezes, which eventually causes damage to the roofing materials.
