About The Roof
Roof damage – excessive heat and moisture causes the roof sheathing to dry-rot and reduces the life of the underlayment. Poor ventilation can cause the shingles on your roof to swell and split or cause the plywood on your deck to soften. As if that is not enough, this will eventually lead to cracking, warping and the breakdown of wood framing. This in turn will lead to premature aging of your roofing system.
Mold – it’s one of the more habitual issues found in attic insulation. If the home doesn’t have an adequate vapor barrier! and there are leaks, then that water soaks up into traditional forms of insulation like fiberglass and cellulose.
