  • My roof has two static vents, but my contractor recommends installing a ridge vent. Do I need this additional vent?
      1. According to the NRCA, attic ventilation needs to be balanced between the eaves and the ridge. Therefore, you need at least half the ventilation to to be at or near the ridge. You may need a ridge vent.
  • How can I reduce or remove ice dams from my roof?
    1. You can carefully remove as much snow as possible yourself, but if your roof slope is too steep, you need to call a professional.
    2. Do not use tools like ice picks, shovels, or anything with a sharp edge. The NRCA does not recommend hosing down your roof or using a hot air gun. A professional will be able to give you the help you need.
