Your roof must be in top notch shape to perform under high gusting winds, sun, rain, snow and ice. Shingles alone is not enough.

It’s not the shingles that go bad every so often, it’s the improper intake and exhaust system that is not performing like it supposed to. If the temperature in your attic is much different from outside, that is a perfect sign.

An attic that is not venting properly could cause many problems during summer and winter to your roof and to your pocket if you ask me. Lack of ventilation causes ice damming and condensation during winter months and it can get ugly. During summer months your attic will act like a furnace cooking the certain areas of your home. Your roof shingles are always under the sun and it is designed to expand and shrink depending on the temperature. When there is lack of ventilation that can be caused by improper intake system which is referred to your soffit that is designed to allow the fresh air to enter your attic and balance the temperature.
