When the inevitable severe storm hits the Twin Cities, homeowners get concerned about how their homes may have been damaged. The obvious places to look are the roof and siding, the spots where damage most often occurs. But there is an element that often gets overlooked - vents on top of the roof (and elsewhere). Those vents are there to perform very important and specific purposes, and if they are compromised, it could lead to trouble. If you've read our previous post on roof vents and storms, you're already aware of different types of vents that your home could or might have. We have more information to share with you about those vents and storms.
