DALCO Roof Essentials
Typical household activities can wreak havoc on a roof and attic if proper ROOF VENTILATION is not provided:
- In the summer, heat build-up encourages the premature aging and cracking of wood and other roofing materials. Unwanted heat also can transfer back down into living areas – which reduces energy efficiency.
- In cold weather, warm air generated by laundry, showers, dish washing and cooking can linger in the house and cause moisture build-up.
The only way to combat these problems is with a balanced Top of the House® roofing system. That means it’s important to have proper ventilation, plus the appropriate amount of attic insulation to maximize performance.
VENTILATE RIDGE VENTS
VentSure® Ridge Vents offer the perfect combination of exceptional performance, streamlined styling and easy installation. As part of a balanced ventilation system, they help provide proper ventilation underneath the roof deck to prevent overheating and moisture buildup. VentSure® Ridge vents are available a 20′ corrugated plastic roll called VentSure® Rigid Roll.
WeatherLock® Flex Flexible Self-Sealing Ice & Water Barrier provides better protection against cracking and deck damage from freeze/thaw cycling, wind-driven rains and normal water flow around eaves, rakes, valleys, vents, chimney and skylights.
Engineered for asphalt shingles, wood shakes and quarry slate roof assemblies, this high performance solution is flexible and pliable. Its poly surface and rubberized asphalt combine to adhere around irregular shapes, inside corners and sharp angles, even in cold-weather applications to 40°F
