Proper ventilation is crucial to the durability of your roofing system. Otherwise, heat and moisture can build up inside your attic, causing rafters and sheathing to rot, shingles to buckle, and even your insulation to not work properly.
This is why you should never block off louvers, ridge vents, or soffit vents at any time, including the winter. By making sure your attic is well ventilated, you can help prevent structural damage, keep moisture out, increase the life of the roofing material, reduce the amount of energy you consume, and even maximize comfort in the rooms directly below the attic.
Make Sure Your Attic is Properly Ventilated in Your Florida Home
- A gap-free layer of insulation on the attic floor to protect the house below from heat gain or loss.
- A vapor retarder under the insulation and next to the ceiling to stop moisture from rising into the attic.
- Enough open, vented spaces to allow air to pass in and out freely.
- A minimum of 1 inch between the insulation and roof sheathing.
Depending on the structure and environmental conditions (sun exposure, amount of shade, humidity, etc.), the requirements to properly ventilate your attic can really vary, though manufacturers recommend 1 square foot (minimum) of free vent area for each 150 square feet of floor space and vents placed at the eaves and near the ridge, proportionately.
