Don't Overlook Your Bathroom & Kitchen Vents With Your New Roof Install: Hidden Dangers

When was the last time you went into your attic to inspect your bathroom and kitchen vents? If you're like most homeowners, the answer is probably never. Unfortunately, many issues can arise from poor connections or bad contractors who don't complete their tasks properly. And unfortunatly many roofers do not inspect these when installing a new roof.

One of the most significant problems that occur when bathroom and kitchen vents exhaust into the attic is they add hot air and moisture, which can end up rotting out the decking and other wood frames. This can compromise the integrity of the roof and lead to costly repairs.


In addition to structural damage, bathroom and kitchen vents that exhaust into the attic can also cause mold growth. Mold thrives in moist environments, and an attic with excess moisture is a perfect breeding ground. Not only can mold damage the roof and attic, but it can also cause health problems for you and your family.


It's essential to hire a roofing company that takes a comprehensive approach to roofing replacement. TomKat Restoration, for example, uses its HVAC department to inspect the attic and fix any ventilation issues before installing a new roof.


It's crucial not to simply look at the estimates you get by looking for a lower cost. Contractors who offer lower prices may leave out vital ventilation work. Hiring a reputable contractor who understands the importance of proper ventilation can save you money in the long run and prevent serious damage to your home.


In conclusion, neglecting your bathroom and kitchen vents can lead to hidden dangers lurking in your attic. If you haven't inspected your ventilation lately, it's time to call in a professional, especially if you're putting on a new roof. By ensuring proper ventilation, you can protect your home from costly damage and keep your family safe. Call TomKat today for a new roof estimate.
