Proper ventilation is key to the lifespan, warranty and function of your new roof.
Why is Adequate Roof Ventilation Important?
It is also important to note that poor attic ventilation can even invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty on your shingles. Attic ventilation requirements are usually stipulated in a roofing system manufacturer’s warranty, and proper ventilation should be documented at the time of roofing installation.
