Knowing that Dennison Exterior Solutions as roofing contractors in Stevensville Michigan and experts in proper attic ventilation we would understand the dramatic affect proper ventilation would have on extending the life of their roofs shingles and help reducing the damaging effects of ice dams during the harsh Michigan winters.
As members of the Professional Roofers Advisory Council we know that proper ventilation consists of intake at the eave edges of your home and exhaust typically ridge vents. Not all ridge vents work by the way. The only ridge vents that work are those that have an external baffle that creates negative pressure above the vent which pulls cooler dryer air in through the intake vents under the eave edges or your home, circulates through the attic and exhausts through the ridge vent. This process reduces cooling costs inside your home by keeping the heat inside your attic to a minimum. This process also helps stop the moisture buildup inside the attic in the winter, which causes moisture to condense on the roofs sheathing which warps the wood, and the moisture then falls onto the insulation matting it and reducing its R-value.
