Reduce moisture buildup
Proper roof ventilation will help you prevent moisture buildup, especially during the winter months. During winter, the outside is way too cold, and the inside is warm. This can cause condensation of the warm air on the walls of the attic increasing the moisture. Moisture buildup under the roof can damage the overall integrity of the roof over time.
Hence, proper ventilation can help you reduce moisture buildup and protect your roof in the long run.
Reduce damage to roofing materials and shingles
As mentioned above, the moisture build-up can cause damage to your roof shingles. Shingles can crack or loosen up in the long run, causing roof leaks over time. Moreover, moisture can also increase the chances of rust in roofing materials over time.
Lack of proper ventilation increases the chances of the growth of mold and mildew in the roof shingles damaging them even further.
