The key to keeping your home in good condition while maintaining energy efficiency and comfort is to ensure that you take good care of its core components. These include the roofing shingles, siding, windows and even the low-key components– such as the soffits and fascia. Even these less-prominent components make all the difference in keeping your home safe and energy efficient, as long as they have proper ventilation. In this post, your trusted local roofer, Dynamic Roofing Concepts, shares why these components require ventilation.
Providing your soffits and fascia proper ventilation reduces the chance of heat and moisture from accumulating in your attic or underneath your roof. If there is excessive moisture in this area, then mold and mildew spore growth will follow. This will damage your roof and other portions of your home. Remember that well-vented soffits and fascias will keep your roof and home in pristine condition.
Your roofing contractor will tell you that a well-functioning soffit and fascia can help prolong your roof’s life since it reduces heat buildup that can cause your roof’s condition to deteriorate quickly. Having it well-ventilated also improves your roof’s health, prolonging its lifespan, getting you more out of your investment.
Your soffits and fascia boards will come in handy during the summer and winter months. Right now, your ventilation system will allow the hot air to exit your home, keeping your roof cool. They can also help during the winter months since they reduce the temperature of your attic, since the soffit and fascia prevents ice dams from forming along the eaves.
