Roof and Attic Inspection
Ventilation is the most effective way to deal with humidity problems and avoid a buildup of moisture. Balanced air intake and exhaust in an attic space is important for keeping your home in good condition. When not done correctly, improper ventilation can cause a number of issues that can result in indoor air quality issues or expensive repairs of your Battle Creek, MI, area home’s roof or ceilings.
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continual flow of outside air through the attic, protecting the effectiveness of the insulation and help lower temperatures in the living spaces during the summer. During the winter, it will help prevent damaging icicles and ice dams.
