Maintenance Matters
Attic Maintenance to Avoid Moisture and Heat

In the home, warm air will rise to the highest point, the attic. It is important to have proper ventilation and insulation in this area to ensure proper temperature control.

MAINTENANCE MATTERS

Here are a few things to remember regarding attic maintenance in the summer months.

  • Proper attic ventilation will help move out warm and moist air.
  • Make sure that insulation is not blocking soffit vents to keep air moving through the attic.
  • All leaks should be noted and repaired to reduce the chance of moisture issues in the attic.
  • Insulation should follow local standards for materials and thickness.

With these few adjustments, your attic can more effectively keep out moisture and heat. This will help lower utility costs throughout the year and help keep your home more comfortable.

DID YOU KNOW?

Wood Decking

Pressure treated wood is protected using a chemical bath. One of the main chemicals used in the bath is copper, which will cause standard-steel fasteners to corrode up to five times faster than when the same fastener is used on untreated wood. Galvanized or stainless-steel fasteners are much better options.
