Benefits of a Moisture Barrier
Moisture barriers not only block moisture from both inside and outside the home, but they also contribute to lower energy cost, increased longevity in your roofing system, and help your roofing system lays flatter, increasing the uniformity and value of your roof. Pillar Roofing & Construction, serving Richardson, TX, uses the highest-quality moisture barrier shingle underlayment to improve the life and protection of your roof’s shingles and shakes.
Moisture barriers have a special moisture-control design that helps remove nearly twice as much damaging moisture from your roof deck as the leading synthetic non-breathable underlayment. It also has a durable, construction for long-lasting performance, unlike conventional felts that can disintegrate over time.
Underlayment is used to protect your roof from moisture and debris in the event that shingles are damaged. It works as an extra layer of protection for your home that defends against water leaks and chemical residue from shingles and synthetic roof materials.
Proper roof ventilation means to supply a continuous flow of air through the attic space, and is required to protect your home and roof system. Non ventilated attics in Richardson, TX can reach up to 170°F, which is not only extremely dangerous for people, but can cause major damage to shingles and sheathing.
Ventilation systems use equal amounts of energy from two separate systems which work together seamlessly. Intake vents are mounted lower on the home and use airflow to intake dry, cool air into the roof space. Likewise, exhaust ventilation fans are mounted on top of the roofing system and expel heat and moisture from the roof space. The two systems working in tandem can increase the life of your roof, lower your energy cost, and protect from mold, rot, and mildew that can lead to health problems. On the contrary, homes without proper ventilation system can face manufacturer’s warranty voids and discontinuances.
Intake Ventilation Solutions
Options for intake ventilation include solutions for every position, as well as models designed for aesthetic purposes, close-able models, and vents designed for use on gables and other structures that are difficult to ventilate. Proper intake ventilation choice and installation is important to the life of your roof, so make sure you have an experienced roofing team like Pillar Roofing & Construction in Richardson, TX to complete the process.
Exhaust Ventilation Solutions
Exhaust ventilation helps to push hot, moist air outside from the roof space. There are many types of exhaust ventilation solutions, all with different features and benefits. Four main types of exhaust ventilation fans are typically used on most roofing systems. Ridge vents are known for their aesthetically pleasing appearance and quiet performance. They also have a long lifespan and protect against most elements including weather, debris, and animal infestation. Other choices for top protection from the elements are louvers and turbines, both of which are comparatively low cost. Power vents are known for their versatility and can be used in almost any climate and roof space. They are also one of the most energy efficient exhaust fan choices.
