Attic Ventilation Deland
Proper Attic Ventilation can Extend the Life of Your Roof
Brian Sikes Roofing is proud to provide attic ventilation in Deland and surrounding areas. While it is often overlooked, a properly installed and effective ventilation system is a vital component of a properly installed roof system. Whether you’re having your roof repaired or replaced, this is a good time to evaluate your existing ventilation. Properly ventilating your roof will ensure that hot air escapes and prevent moisture buildup that can damage wood. Excess moisture can also make your attic a breeding ground for termites and other pests. Proper ventilation will also help your AC unit run more efficiently and cost effectively.

Importance of Attic Ventilation
Living in Florida, it is not uncommon in the heat of summer for an attic to reach 140 degrees or more! Extreme temperatures with no ventilation can lead to moisture within your attic. When moisture is present, it is more common to run into problems such as pests, termites, and even mold. Attic and roof vents can allow hot air to escape the attic and help prevent high humidity and moisture. In addition, a properly ventilated attic will ensure that your AC unit runs more efficiently and cost effectively!
Importance of a Properly Vented Attic
By allowing hot air to escape your attic in the heat of the summer, your living spaces will remain cooler. Your AC unit can work more efficiently, and this will help your roof shingles from expanding due to excess moisture. And, you’ll save money on your utility bills.
Even in the winter attics can be significantly warmer and humid. By allowing the warmer air to escape through attic ventilation, condensation decreases. This is important to prevent damage to your home’s insulation, wood framing, roof deck and drywall. As hot air escapes it also sucks in cooler air through soffit vents that keep your roof dry and aids in cooling.
In order to insure your roof reaches its full lifespan it needs proper ventilation. In fact, a roof that is not properly vented can cause the thermal expansion of your shingles, that can shorten the life of your roof by as much as half and jeopardize the shingle warranty.
Unfortunately, improperly installed attic ventilation is quite common. Some of the reasons your ventilation may not be performing properly could be the vents are blocked by insulation or roof felt. We are experts in attic ventilation installation and repair as well as ridge vents and other types of roof vents such as soffit or gable-end vents.
