How to Maintain the Quality of your Ventilation and Metal Roof
Not so long ago, lots of non-profit organizations conducted programs about healthy homes. How to keep it dry, keeping it clean and pest free. As a homeowner, you might not be aware of your home as having an efficient ventilation system. Yes indeed, homes must have a good ventilation system to combat the high heat that roofing systems creates. Normally this is done by industry standard soffit and ridge vents that only lower your attic air temperatures down to 130 degrees on a 90 degree day.
Most likely, a typical home will normally let the heat out from the attic. But, a well-ventilated home allows removing the moisture, pollutants and odor at the same time. Keep in mind that there are more pollutants from home rather than from outside the home.
Proper ventilation system plays a vital role for many residential homes and industrial areas as well. When your home does not have good ventilation or even industry standard ventilation you house will stay hot in the summer months, by the heat in the attic trying to come into the home. Even if you AC unit keeps your home cool with a hot attic it will run longer and cost you more money in you electric bill. Plus without proper ventilation you might even create a mold or mildew problem which is very dangerous and costly to have removed. Having a under roof ventilation system installed also referred to as a Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) will help keep you home pleasant while keeping your attic temperatures down. Not every ASV is the same; we use the most efficient one made called Therma Vent.

Damaged roof such as leaks will primarily affect your ventilation system.
Constantly, monitor trees and bushes against your metal roof. Trees which are always moving as the wind blows can damage your roof. It is highly advisable to trim your trees from time to time especially when storm season arise.

Always clean your gutter most especially during the fall season. Accumulation of dry leaves and other debris can potentially damage your roofing system. The problem could cause corrosion on a roof, clog and damage the drainage system.
