Our harsh Australian environment and often poor building design can result in our homes heating up very quickly during the day.
Heat trapped in the roof space can result in joint distortion, sagging ceilings and ultimately, paint problems. During winter months, moisture can become trapped within the roof cavity, resulting in the growth of mould and mildew.
While all of this happens in the background, the most important reason to ventilate is to cool your home.
As the heat builds-up in your roof, it radiates through the ceiling and into the rooms below. This heat becomes trapped in a band up to 500mm deep - if the ceilings in your home are 2.4m high, this heat band can be within one foot of your head height!
Ventilation of your roof cavity is the most effective way to combat all of these problems.
