ARMA’s New Video Illustrates Why Homeowners Need Proper Attic Ventilation

Is your roof properly ventilated? The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association’s (ARMA) latest whiteboard video outlines the components to a properly functioning attic ventilation system and the many ways it benefits a roof, such as protection against shingle deterioration and roof system damage.

” highlights how a balanced system of intake and exhaust results in a continuous flow of air in an unconditioned attic, helping to reduce heat and moisture buildup year-round and prolong the life of the roofing system.


“Homeowners may not be aware of just how important attic ventilation is to the longevity and performance of their asphalt shingle roofing system,” said Tim McQuillen, ARMA’s director of technical services and a 25-year industry veteran. “ARMA wants to educate homeowners on proper attic ventilation and why it’s important, as well as how to recognize the signs indicating it’s time to call a roofing contractor if there are issues.”


ARMA encourages homeowners planning to install a new asphalt shingle roof to consult with their roofing contractor or the manufacturer of their roofing system to ensure their attic is properly ventilated.
