Rafter ventilation is key in helping to circulate stagnate air out of your attic and through your roof ventilation system. Without this, warm air becomes trapped and creates condensation that leads to mold. Ice dams, a common issue in the Midwest, are commonly caused by inadequate rafter ventilation. Proper rafter ventilation will create a home that performs better and is more comfortable, keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Many homeowner’s don’t realize how much better they home could feel and function with better insulation Increasing or improving your rafter ventilation is a fast and simple procedure that can drastically improve your quality of life.
