In order for the air between your roof and attic to move around in a pattern that yields a cool attic space a well-crafted ventilation system must be installed. The balanced ridge vent and soffit vent technique used by the St. Louis roofers at Storm Solutions will prolong the life of your roof by increasing air circulation, and keeping temperatures in your attic down.
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continual flow of outside air through the attic, lowering temperatures and protecting your insulation from dampening and becoming ineffective. A balance between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge) is created by a properly installed system. It is this balance that keeps your attic from overheating.
An attic that has been professionally ventilated by an expert in roofing St. Louis like Storm Solutions can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving the super-heated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.
