Sustaining the life of your roof is an easy task that can save you thousands of dollars in the long run. One way that many roofs are damaged or weakened comes from poor ventilation in the attic. With the heat in your home rising to that attic space, it has the potential to weaken and lessen the lifespan of shingles and even increase your overall utility costs while also damaging the expensive utility lines that run through your house.
The good thing is you have nothing to worry about! We have a few easy ways you can tell that your roof is being damaged by poor ventilation that you can read below, and you can always feel free to reach out to us at (918) 994-2874 with any questions!
1. The shingles on your roof are blistering.
One way that you can easily tell if your roof is being damaged by poor ventilation is when the shingles begin blistering. This is usually a sign that heat in your attic area is looking for a way to escape, and is causing the adhesive and tar to melt.
These types of flaws are fixable, but after a while can cause long term damage that will require the whole roof to be replaced. This can also cause shingles to become incredibly brittle in cold winter months that cause the exposed areas to become even more vulnerable.
2. Your roof appears wavy.
Another easy way to identify if your roof is being damaged by poor ventilation is by checking if your roof is wavy. Many times this is a really good sign that the overall structure and foundation of the roof is being warped by heat and cold transitions.
In most cases, getting on a level view of your roof will help identify this is the case.
3. Calling for an in-home assessment.
One thing that we realized would help our customers remove the fear of the unknown is simply having a free assessment in place that we use to identify if you have proper ventilation. Through tools and systems that make this process quick and easy, we can identify the best locations to add turtle vents that make ventilation efficient and assure that your roof will be healthy for a long time to come.
