Proper ventilation will remove moisture and heat from the attic--it minimizes the temperature differential between the attic and the air outside. That is why proper attic ventilation is an important part of roofing and it extends the life of a roof and reduces problems. Trapped heat and moisture can raise energy costs, and damage roof system components as well as structural and personal items located inside the attic where temperatures can easily reach 150° F (65° C). Condensation that forms inside attics can be caused by the use of washing machines, dish washers, bath tubs, showers, and tumble driers unless these items are properly ventilated through the roof. In some cases, the condensation can be bad enough to be mistaken for a roof leak.
Chimneys usually extend from the floor and penetrate the roof system of most houses or condominiums, providing a way for water to infiltrate every level of your home. Most chimneys are masonry (brick, stone or stucco). Water can penetrate masonry chimneys when the mortar joints are deteriorated, the brick, stone or stucco is cracked, the crown is loose and cracked or the flashings have deteriorated. A properly constructed and properly flashed chimney is essential to keeping your home watertight.
