Ventilation and Insulation
July 31, 2017
Have you ever driven by a house in your Southeast Michigan neighborhood and noticed there’s one or two that stand out for bad reasons, such as a beat-up looking door, peeling windows or dilapidated roof? Even if everyone else is properly maintaining their homes, those odd ones out can really have an impact on property values. Typically, real estate agents use “comps” or comparable home values to determine the idea selling price for your home. The better maintained the properties are in your area, the more you’ll be able to place your house on the market for. A damaged roof is more than just a safety hazard, it has the potential to significantly impact the value of your home, that’s why it’s important to keep up with roofing maintenance and roof repairs. If a new roof is needed, it’s best to consult with a licensed roofing contractor – that’s the best place to get started. Check them out on sites such as the Better Business Bureau, which rates companies based on customer complaints and reviews. Angie’s List is another good resource to check.

The importance of proper ventilation and insulation
Most homeowners don’t realize the significance of good attic insulation and ventilation. If it’s inadequate or poor quality, you risk the buildup of moisture or condensation on the interior side of your roof. Our company is exceptionally experienced in this area – our roofing professionals know exactly what to look for and how to make repairs. If your attic is not sealed, municipal building codes require ventilation. Here are four reasons why this is so critical:
- To prolong the life of shingles.
- Reduce electric bills during the summer.
- Lower possibility of ice dams during the winter.
- Eliminate areas of moisture build up.
Proper attic insulation is just as important, and our experts have the correct materials and knowledge to do this the right way. We guarantee all of our work will pass city inspections, so everything will be up to code.
