Are you a homeowner?
Heat and moisture needs to escape your attic, and it’s all about circulating air to keep things fresh. Unfortunately, most homes in Chicago and its suburbs have too much moisture – and that can cause significant issues.
You can reduce moisture and heat in your home, lowering your energy bills and preserving your home’s structural components, with the proper attic ventilation. (Roof vents aren’t necessarily the same as a full attic ventilation system, although they can be part of it.)
Insufficient ventilation or too much ventilation can cause problems, which means you need just the right amount of ventilation for your home. Typically, you need 1 square foot of ventilation for every 300 square feet of ceiling space; however, vent grates and other factors impact how much air flow is able to travel through vents. Because every roof is different, each requires a custom solution that may include soffit vents, ridge vents, or a combination of the two.
We can help you get just the right amount of attic ventilation or the right number of roof vents in your home. Call us at 847-878-9945 for a free estimate and to find out where we work. We can answer all your questions and explain what needs to happen for you to preserve and protect your home.
