A roof made with slate tiles or cedar shake shingles can have a very impressive look. In the late 1800s they were the favorite choice of homeowners for roofing materials. However, that preference has waned largely because today shake and slate roofs are costly to buy, install, and maintain.
A critical factor in the performance and lifecycle of a home’s roof is its ability to vent. The correct amount of attic ventilation extends the life of a roof because it minimizes the temperature differential between the attic and the air outside.
