If you are in need of replacing or even repairing your roof and you don’t plan on moving anytime soon, then you might want to consider adding ridge roof vents when replacing your roof or repairing your roof to help cool your attic and allow it to breath.
There are several reasons why you would spend the extra money – especially due to the extreme heat and humidity here in Georgia.
Current standards on new homes call for continuous ridge ventilation and fully vented soffits. The benefit is that the roof structure stays dry, and well ventilated, and the shingles stay cooler and last longer. In addition to that, lowering the temperature of an attic that contains ducts can reduce your air conditioning costs.
