More Core Construction Case Studies: Roof Ventilation in Middletown, New Jersey

Thursday, September 17th, 2015 by Ralph Tawil

Challenge

Customer's Roof is only 3 years old and leaking. At first customer noticed the roof dripping during the winter months. Customer found out that his old roofer was no longer in business. He called the manufacturer, they finally came out and they told him it is not a warranty issue it was a ventilation issue. Customer had his local handy man install little vents into his wooden soffit. However another winter went by and he had the same exact issues. Even worse, it started to leak and rot out the wood in the soffit.  Finally after a major downpoor he found More Core Construction.

Solution

More Core Construction came in and did a full roof/ attic inspection. We noted that due to the poor ventilation nails were popping up on the roof causing leaks during wind driven rain. We also noted that the fan was never changed and only had a thermostat and not a humidistat. Also, we noted the holes that the handy man made were not big enough, and never pulled back the insulation that was stuffing up the soffit.  We resealed all the nail pops, we changed the fan that had to a thermostat and humidistat, The thermostat will work during months that have heat, and humidistat will work during cool months to eject any condensation caused by the cool temperatures outside and the hot temperatures inside. Now that we took care of the exausts  In order for the fan to work properly, we need to take care of the intake: ie: the soffits. What we decided to do first was pull back all the insulation around the eaves. On the outside we  cut out big holes and took out all the rotted plywood under the soffit. To finish the job we decided to go with a maintenance free solution by cladding the fascia with aluminum and install center vented vinyl soffits. By opening up the plywood and removing the insulation the fan will work more efficiently keeping the attic space closer to outside temperature. This is an integral part of your roofing system and insure the roof's longevity.
