Attic Insulation

Many homeowners in Central Indiana and across the country don't realize that maintaining a healthy roof and attic means installing attic ventilation. It's imperative to the health of your home to allow airflow in your attic space. This prevents a number of large problems from occurring and helps to maintain healthy indoor air quality. The good news is that you can have attic ventilation installed during a complete roof replacement to keep your Indianapolis home healthy.

Why Do Indianapolis Homes Need Attic Ventilation?

Attic ventilation is one of the most important features you can add to your roof. Homes located in humid, cold, and warm climates need attic ventilation to maintain healthy airflow in the attic space. When your home is being heated or cooled, air will rise to the attic and cause condensation to form because the attic space is less insulated than the rest of your home. Air must be able to escape through vents to prevent a number of problems from occurring.

Problems That Occur Without Attic Ventilation

Unfortunately, many homes are constructed without attic ventilation to save money on construction costs. A proper roofing contractor will insist that attic ventilation and quality attic insulation must be incorporated into the construction of the home just like any other important preventative measure. Attic ventilation is crucial to the longevity of homes in the Central Indiana region. Without proper attic ventilation in your roofing, your home is susceptible to the following issues:

  • Mold and Mildew Growth
  • Moisture Buildup
  • Wood Rot
  • Ice Dams
  • Roof Deterioration

What Types of Attic Ventilation Are There?

There are a few different types of attic ventilation that you can choose for your Central Indiana home depending on your wants and needs as a homeowner. For optimal airflow, you can choose roof vents that are scattered in strategic locations across the roof. This option can be considered an eyesore to some homeowners who are looking for a sleek exterior design.

Another option for attic ventilation is ridge vents which are located on the ridge of the roof. This area is raised higher than the rest of the roof to allow for discrete attic ventilation. Each type of attic vents can be used in conjunction with soffit vents for increased airflow into the attic space. These are just some of the most popular types of attic vents, for more information on attic ventilation solutions, contact your roofing company of choice.
