 Roof Ventilation Issues

Even though roof ventilation can seem to be a trivial issue, it has huge repercussions on the quality of life, comfort, and safety of residents of the building. Ventilation plays a major role in the natural circulation of air in a building, and improper ventilation can cause a variety of problems, including weakening the roof structure over time.
