Critters In Your Roofing System



Ventilation & Building Science, from Fine Homebuilding (Summer 2012)

A good friend of mine pointed out this article in FineHomebuilding, and it sums up what we face when we work on homes to make them more energy efficient and not a place where mold loves to grow.

One thing that is critical is that the people in our field understand the principals of ventilation and know how to prevent issues from happening in the planning stages.

I am not a physics person, but I am in the physics business.  That said, the only area of “physics” that I am very good at is attic ventilation.  V

My goal is a cool dry attic, year around.  We can design this into a replacement roof and retro existing structures to meet these goals.  We can save up to 20% on A/C costs in summer and make a home’s insulation more efficient in winter by lowering the humidity.

It does not appear that anyone really know all the answers, but there are many professionals in the roofing business such as Paul Sceisi of Air Vent who work on educating people in the field on the principles of ventilation and how to do it correctly. He teaches a class for roofers every spring in San Jose.  I used to know everything until I took his class. Now I know what I don't know.

Please consider me a resource and a conduit to help you with your ventilation needs related to roofing.
