Something • When it comes to maintaining the roof of a commercial building owners are usually worried about insulation and overall condition of the roof. While these things are important owners should also consider roof ventilation. If your roof is not properly ventilated you may experience the following issues:

slide 3:

Something • Condensation Buildup: The moisture from within the building whether from humidity or steam from cooking and warm water usage will rise towards the roof. If not properly ventilated the moisture can’t escape causing condensation to settle in areas such as the eaves soffits and roofing materials. This buildup can cause structural damage or mold growth.

slide 4:

Something • Roof Damage: If heat and moisture are not removed with proper ventilation the roof may sustain damage that can shorten its lifespan such as warped decking bucking shingles and structural damage to the wood frame. With poor roof ventilation you will not only end up spending money to repair the damage but you may also be forced to replace your roof prematurely.

slide 5:

Something • High Energy Bills: This problem is more likely to occur in Summer as poorly ventilated roofs allow heat to buildup in attic spaces. If this heat has nowhere to escape it will seep back into the building raising the indoor temperature and causing your air conditioner to run more than necessary.

slide 6:

Something • Ice dams: This happens when heat builds up under the roof causing ice and snow on top to melt. As the snow melts ice will refreeze at the edge of the roof putting major stress on it. The ice dams will continue to grow and trap water from the melting ice and snow leading to leaks and water damage. The weight of ice dams can also cause structural damage or even collapse if it continues to build up.

Something • By keeping the ventilation system of your commercial roof properly maintained you can avoid costly repairs keep your energy bills under control and extend the lifespan of your roof. If you believe that your roof is not properly ventilating or if you would like to have your ventilation system inspected contact a commercial roofing contractor.
