Attic Ventilation

Last updated 5 years ago

You may not know it, but it is estimated that 90% of homes have inadequate attic ventilation. In Utah, this can be especially problematic because we have both extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold and snow in the winter. Overheated attic space can lead to warping, cracking and other damage of the framing and roofing structures if the hot air cannot escape. In the winter, heat trapped in the attic can cause snow to melt too quickly, and the cold air outside and lower on the roof (the eaves) can cause ice dams to form and lead to leaks.

Fortress Roofing installs proper ventilation as part of all roofing system installations. If you have concerns about whether or not your attic is properly ventilated, we will be happy to help with an inspection. Our website has some good information about how an attic should be ventilated:
