PROPER ROOF VENTILATION CAN ENHANCE THE LIFE OF YOUR ROOF
Have your roof deck and wood framing been warping and rotting? Have your shingles begun to buckle? Are you starting to see mildew growing? If so, you likely need a roof ventilation system.
Ventilation is incredibly important to the life and effectiveness of a roofing system. Vapors and condensation that builds up in the attic can deplete your home’s R-values and lead to hidden decay within the structure of your home.
The expert personnel at Pitts Roofing will install a ventilation system that performs in ways you can see, and in ways you can’t, ultimately helping the life span of your roof.
We offer our roof ventilation services in Fort Worth, Arlington, Grapevine and many areas nearby.

Don't let your home suffer from poor roof ventilation
Improper attic ventilation can cause many problems. For example, in the summer, an attic without proper ventilation can cause excess heat to build up—sometimes up to 160 degrees. This super-heated air can cause discomfort and can even penetrate through the attic’s insulation and into the living area below. Damage from poor ventilation is as follows:
- Early aging of your roof, which can be seen in “fried” shingles
- Damage to the wood framing, including warping, cracking, and breakdown
- Siding, paint, and wallpaper damage
- Increased energy costs
Also, during the winter months, your home’s appliances can lead to an excess build-up of moisture. Attics that aren’t ventilated can cause this moisture to build up and cling to your roof. There, the moisture will condensate and drip onto your insulation. Soaked insulation reduces its efficiency greatly.
PREVENT THE FORMATION OF ICE DAMS
In the winter, snow and ice on a roof will melt and run down into the eaves of the roof. This water can then re-freeze in the eaves, forming a dam of ice that traps water on the roof, preventing it from running off. This moisture buildup can eventually seep under your shingles and enter your home — causing hundreds to thousands of dollars in water damage to the interior of your home. When your attic is ventilated properly, it will reduce the initial amount of snow that melts which reduces the chances an ice dam will form.
