DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES WITH YOUR FAMILY'S HEALTH
The condition of your attic can be reflected on the health of your family and you. In addition to negatively affecting your home and reducing its market value, a problem of mold in the attic is not without impact on the health of the inhabitants. In fact, studies have shown that 72% of all homes with cold attics have high humidity and a high presence of molds.
Health Canada recognizes that there is a direct relationship between the presence of mold in homes and the increase in many health problems such as cough, asthma, and headaches. No matter if it’s the result of water infiltration, inadequate ventilation or any such problem, mold growth is a common problem in attics. Depending on pressure variations, mold spores can travel from the attic to the living area where they become a real hazard to the occupants. An air quality analysis is a great way to know for certain if mold spores are present in the indoor air.

Metal nails oxidize when water is present. The presence of rust on nails in the attic often betrays a problem of moisture or water infiltration
Abnormally fast wear of the roof
Premature wear of asphalt shingles may indicate a problematic situation in the attic such as overheating
Presence of icicles at the edge of the roof
Behind its magical appearance, the presence of icicles around your home can hide a problem in the attic
