Proper attic ventilation plays a crucial role in maintaining the health and longevity of your roofing system. At SML Construction, we specialize in providing effective attic venting solutions for homeowners in Ottawa and across Eastern Ontario. Our certified professionals understand the significance of maintaining optimal temperature differentials and controlling moisture levels within your attic. Here's why our attic venting services are essential for your home:


1. Extended Roof Life and Energy Efficiency:


Adequate attic ventilation is key to extending the life of your roof and reducing potential problems. By minimizing the temperature differential between your attic and the outside air, proper ventilation helps prevent heat buildup and moisture accumulation. Trapped heat and moisture can lead to increased energy costs, ice dams, and damage to your roof system components, as well as personal belongings and structural elements within the attic. Our attic venting solutions effectively remove excess moisture and heat, promoting a more energy-efficient and durable roofing system.

2. Prevention of Structural Damage:


Improper attic ventilation can lead to various structural issues that compromise the integrity of your home. Without adequate airflow, sumps between rafters (deck deflection) can occur, causing the plywood roof deck to warp, deteriorate, and become unstable. Additionally, condensation resulting from insufficient ventilation can cause dry rot, rusting of metal components, and the deterioration of insulation. By implementing proper attic venting, we can help mitigate these problems and ensure the long-term stability and safety of your home.

3. Protection against Moisture-Related Problems:

In humid climates, high inside humidity combined with low outside temperatures can result in frost formation on the bottom of the roof deck. This frost can contribute to the development of dry rot, reduced insulation efficiency, and the growth of molds, spores, and fungi. Our attic venting solutions effectively regulate moisture levels, preventing these issues and maintaining a healthier environment within your home.

4. Different Attic Venting Options:

At SML Construction, we offer a range of attic venting options to suit the unique needs of your home. Our solutions include ridge vents, soffit vents, gable vents, and powered attic fans. Ridge vents and soffit vents work in tandem to promote efficient airflow, allowing fresh air to enter through the soffit vents and exit through the ridge vents. Gable vents provide additional ventilation on the sides of your attic, while powered attic fans enhance airflow for optimal ventilation in situations where natural airflow may be limited. Our experts will assess your home's specific requirements and recommend the most suitable attic venting solution for your needs.

Matt and the crew from SML did an excellent job replacing the shingles and related roof stuff on the newer extension of our house. The crew showed up on time, got the job done in a very quick and efficient manner, and cleaned up the work site as if they hadn't even been there. The price was very competitive with other quotes we got, and we highly recommend SML to other home owners. Thanks Matt!
