This attic is dry and with no roof leaks. This picture was taken during the heating season and the attic temperature is the same inside as the exterior climate. Now, this means that the building envelope for this section of the home is efficient and what makes functional are the following:
- Proper air/vapor barrier, no warm air condensating with cold air in the attic.
- R-40 blown in insulation, no heat lost.
- Adequate soffit venting and proper quantities of roof vents, allowing exterior air circulation inside the attic.
- Roofing shingles are effective for rain water defflection with a proper slope
- Gutters are functional and clean
