Remodels, Restorations & Additions: Call Us for a Home Transformation!
Hello HoneyB Family! Today, we want to shed light on a topic that often goes unnoticed but plays a crucial role in the health of your home—proper roof ventilation. Specifically, we're going to talk about the importance of maintaining at least a 3-inch gap in the roof decking over your roof ridge line.
Why Ventilation Matters
Roof ventilation is an essential part of any home, but it often doesn't receive the attention it deserves. A well-ventilated roof is a happy roof. It prevents the build-up of moisture, allows fresh air to flow in and stale air to flow out, and keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
The 3-inch gap at the roof ridge is essentially a breathing space for your home. It allows for the continuous flow of air, from the eaves to the ridge. This is also known as passive ventilation, where the warm air naturally rises and exits through the ridge, while cooler air enters through the soffits.
The Risks of Ignoring Ventilation
Ignoring the proper gap over your roof ridge line can lead to a multitude of problems. Here are some common issues that arise when roof ventilation is inadequate:
