Do you see wet spots on the ceiling in some areas of your house? These spots could be happening due to moisture inside the attic. Moisture could happen due to many reasons such as not having enough air vents on the roof or the exhaust vent from the washroom is not properly connected which leads to moisture leaks into the attic. We recommend our customers do a visual inspection once every year by looking into the attic through an attic door. You may be able to prevent the situation from getting worse before you know it.
A professional inspection is required to find out the actual cause of the problem and a way to fix it. Contact us to book an appointment.

How to fix attic moisture?
It is required to find out the root cause of attic moisture before it can be remedied. All the causes mentioned in the last question should be looked at individually in isolation as there could be more than one reason causing moisture.

What can attic moisture lead to?
One of the main consequences of attic moisture is the growth of mold on the roof structure. Mold is not only damaging to the structure, but it can also lead to health issues for the occupants.
