Blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint.

Moisture trapped in the house due to poor ventilation can cause exterior paint to peel and blister.

Stains on interior ceilings and walls - mold or mildew growth.

Stains, or worse, mold, can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.

Excess moisture can also contribute to decay.

Missing, cracked, or curled shingles.

Dry, cracked, or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it’s time to invest in a new roof.

Excessive energy costs.

Inadequate ventilation can possibly drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
