Important Things You Didn’t Know About Roof Ventilation

Roof ventilation is a critical part of your home, but one you might not know much about. But because your roof is what’s keeping your home safe and sound, it’s good to brush up on some of the basics. Here are some important things you don’t know about roof ventilation.

What Do Roof Vents Do?

Without roof vents, the temperature in your home would be hard to regulate. In the summer, heat would build up in the attic, making it difficult to keep your home cool. The vents allow air to flow into and out of your attic space, controlling not just the temperature but also the moisture. If you trap moisture, you’re inviting mold and mildew growth in your attic and insulation.

Longer Lasting Roof

One thing with a big impact on the lifespan of your roof is ventilation. Without it, the heat from inside your house rises into the attic, where it melts the ice and snow in the winter. When this happens, ice dams can form. While it might not look damaging, the ice dams can back up under the shingles and roof materials. The damage happens slowly during the winter and can leave you with costly repair needs in the spring.

Increased Energy Efficiency

With greater air circulation comes greater energy efficiency. It takes less to heat and cool your home when the air circulates as it should into and out of your attic through the roof vents. You have consistent temperatures and lower energy bills.

Roof vents are our business. If you feel like your ventilation might not be working as it should contact the team at Premiere Roofing to schedule an inspection.

Best Practices to Keep Your Gutters from Clogging

repairClogged gutters can cause all kinds of issues, from roof damage to foundation damage and even damage to the gutters themselves. How can you prevent it? Take a look at some best practices for keeping your gutters from clogging.

Inspect Gutters

Checking your gutters every month can help ensure they’re not clogged. Catching a small bit of debris can prevent big clogs later. The more stuff that backs up, the more it will catch as debris flows down the gutters. Inspecting and clearing the gutters once a month will make each cleaning easier while preventing damage.

Trim the Trees

Trimming the trees that hang over your house can help keep your gutters from clogging. Leaves and pine needles are the primary causes of clogging when it comes to your gutters. Trimming the trees can cut back on the gunk that gets caught up.

Invest in Gutter Covers

Gutter covers are another way to prevent clogging. The covers use perforated screens that allow water through but keep other stuff out. You’ll still have to clean off the top of the gutter covers periodically, but you won’t have to worry about your gutters and downspouts getting filled up.

It’s not always easy to keep your gutters and downspouts clear. It can be dangerous to climb a ladder to do it yourself, and you may not want to remove the trees from around your house. If your gutters back up and break, you need to replace them as soon as possible. You can count on the team at Premiere Roofing to take care of all of your gutter repairs.

What our clients are saying
“We interviewed 5 roofing companies before deciding to go with Premiere. Not only were they offering a superior product but they offered it at a very reasonable price. On the day of installation, their team was incredibly hard working and did a great job of moving quickly while still protecting our home and yard. Darrel and Jonny were fantastic to work with and kept me informed at every step. If I had it to do over, I would definitely select Premiere Roofing again!”
