Wood rot prevention. Roof vents work by letting the warm or humid air out so the moisture can leave the home.
Finding wood rot is not anything any homeowner wants to find. It often becomes apparent when shingles get replaced and the roofer sees it in the roof decking, rafters or ridge board. Homeowners also see if often when painting trim and find that the wood under a window sill is soft, which means it's rotted.
Given the right conditions, wood rot can spread and generally weaken the structural integrity of the home. This could also lessen the resale value of the home, so if found, it's best to take swift action to get rid of wood rot.

Not everyone knows that wood rot is caused by fungus spores, which are actually everywhere near us. Fungus spores aren't always growing though and rot doesn't just happen in a few days. Dry rot is actually a kind of rot where the wood is overtaken by the fungus and it destroys the wood, making it not as hard and stable.
What does fungus need to grow? Water and a relative humidity level that is high. Once a building's material (usually wood) has a high relative humidity, rot can become a real problem. On roofing, this can happen when a leak happens, even if small and lets water soak into the wood frame.
If wood rot goes untreated for too long, it could lead to severe damage to your roof.
There are several different factors that can cause wood rot in your roof, which is why it's important to understand what problems can make your roof at risk.
