Roof Vents can Expose your Attic to Blowing Snow
When winter comes, we naturally want to make our homes warm and cozy. But there's something important we need to pay attention to when the snow starts to fall: snow can cover our roof vents and worse still, cause snow to blow into our attics. Even though it might not seem like a big deal, snow accumulation in our attics can cause serious problems.
Most Attic Vents can Keep Rain Out of your Attic but Struggle with Blowing Snow
Attic vents are essential to allow air flow in and out of the attic space, which helps regulate temperature and prevent moisture buildup. These same vents provide an opening through which outside elements can enter your home. While most vents do a decent job of keeping rain which flows off your roof, what about blowing snow which can settle on your roof for months?
The Problems Caused by Blowing Snow
Snow blowing into your attic can lead to several problems. Firstly, the trapped moisture from the snow can cause mold growth, which can be a health hazard and cause allergies and respiratory problems. Secondly, the snow in your attic will melt over time, causing water damage to your ceiling and living space. Lastly, the trapped moisture can also cause the wooden roof structure to rot, which can weaken the overall structure of your roof and pose a safety hazard.
