Unlock Your Home’s Potential

Owners employ a variety of measures to promote energy efficiency in their homes.  Much of their effort focuses on retaining maximum warmth, particularly during the colder winter months. While these energy-saving efforts, such as upgrading insulation, certainly contribute to warmer in-home environments, they also can present certain drawbacks. In many cases, warmth-preservation solutions prevent air from escaping the home. This, of course, helps to maintain existing temperatures. But locked-in air often can cause other problems, most notably moisture buildup. This is the result of insufficient air circulation. Fortunately, an Orange County roofer can help provide the ventilation required to minimize moisture buildup.

To provide proper ventilation, a qualified professional likely will focus on your attic (assuming you have one).  Insulation and other energy-saving measures often restrict the circulation of air, continuously recycling the flow. This goes on for months and months. Over time, condensation will form, causing wood deterioration and quite possibly mold. An Orange County roofing company can address the issue by installing an attic vent system. This system utilizes intake vents to draw in cooler air and eliminate excessive heat.

Dormer vents are among the most popular roof ventilation systems an Orange County roofer can install. Their popularity stems from two features. First, they work superbly, providing efficient air circulation for your home. This freely-circulating air helps minimize internal moisture and enhance the durability of your roof, thereby saving you from substantial replacement costs. Secondly, dormer vents are unobtrusive – typically, they are installed on the backside of a roof, far from view. But whether you choose this or any other type of vent, one thing is certain – your roof and home will be a lot better off.

Roof Repairs in Orange County

Most homeowners prefer to DIY fix at least some of their home repairs. After all, doing simple repairs yourself can save you lots of money. But when it comes to your roof, there are certain repairs you simply shouldn't attempt on your own. 

While you may be able to repair a small leak yourself, here are X common roof repairs in Orange County you should leave to the professionals:

  1. Fixing faulty installation. If your roof was improperly installed in the first place, it’ll be more likely to leak. And the lifespan of your roof could decrease dramatically. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell if your roof was installed improperly, or if the problem is more localized. If you suspect your last roofing guys did a number on your roof, call a professional to assess and fix the problem.
