ATTIC VENTILATION: The space between the ceiling and the roof covering is called the Attic. With pitched roof designs, attics can usually be viewed and can sometimes be entered. Low-sloped roof designs generally do not provide access to the attic. Regardless of the slope or design of the roof, constant ventilation should be provided to the attic. Proper attic ventilation will extend the life of the roof covering materials, and will improve the efficiency of the cooling equipment on hot summer days.
