Preparing for the Winter: Insulation and Ventilation


Indiana winters can be brutal. From cold temperatures to heavy snow, houses take a beating. Roofs are often more affected than any other part of the home. The space beneath them may also affect how well you stay warm during the winter. Because of this, you should pay close attention to insulation and ventilation.

Why This Is Important

For most residences and businesses alike, winter is when the energy bill soars. The colder the winter, the higher the energy bill. It takes a lot of energy to provide heat throughout a space, especially if the rooms have high ceilings or open up to an attic area. By ensuring proper insulation and airflow, you can stop those energy bills from climbing too high.

What To Do

There are several steps contractors can take to ensure your insulation and ventilation is in good shape
and fix it if it isn’t.

  1. Inspection: If possible, you may carry out the initial inspection yourself, but it is best to rely on a professional. Contractors note whether the insulation looks worn, torn, or uneven. They may also look out for any signs of moistures or leaks in the attic, ceiling tiles, or crawlspace. Finally, they check that fan vents work normally and are properly installed.
  2. Fix Leaks: If the roof is leaking, contractors will need to address this before moving on to anything else. Water damage can rack up in costs over time and may lead to rot and structural damage, so it is important not to delay repairs.
  3. Add Insulation: If necessary, contractors will add or replace insulation. This helps to maintain an even temperature and provides extra protection against the cold outside. If there was a leak, then replacement becomes more likely to prevent mold or mildew.

Doing a preliminary inspection is a good idea if you do not need to climb up on the roof to do so. Otherwise, roofing work can be dangerous and should be left to the professionals to reduce the risk of injury. Contact Bone Dry Roofing by calling 317-214-0360 or sending us an email today!

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
