Are you aware that MOLD only needs 24 to 48 hours to start reproducing rapidly in YOUR attic space? Mold thrives between 18 and 28 degrees, so with poorly ventilated soffits blocked with insulation air flow is restricted.

Most roofs are fixed with standard low-profile vents, while they may be aesthetically pleasing they do nothing to prevent mold growth and in many cases inhibit it.

The problem is that homeowners are not informed of these problems and most already have it developing in their homes. It takes proper measuring equipment and experience to locate and identify mold, average homeowners do not have these tools.

When mold growth has reached stage 3 the cost for removal is as high as the danger to those in the house. At this point, the smell and visual instances of mold are easy to notice. The mold has likely moved into living spaces like walls and floors.

RECOMENDATIONS

Many companies will simply attempt to kill the mold while leaving your current insulation intact. Some companies will removal both the insulation and treat the area with a mold killing chemical. The issue that arises is that no chemical exists to penetrate further than 2 inches into your insulation. It is this reason that makes the proper removal of your insulation paramount to the effectiveness of the treatment process.
In all cases, a mold removal company must be hired to remove the insulation and treat the area, then a separate roofing company would have to be contracted to repair and install the new materials. This is why mold remediation companies only offer a 1 or 2 year warranty.

WOW Roofing and Insulation does everything!  We use only the finest products and employ state of the art technology. Our process is straightforward and very effective: After removing the old shingles we conduct a detailed inspection of the entire roof deck for signs of rot or ventilation problems, if there is rot we remove and replace the affected area. We follow this by applying a water/ice shield in 100% of your valleys and 6 full inches up from your lower eaves. Finally we install 15lb tar paper up the remainder of your roof decking and cover with 25-30 year shingling. Combing these materials with the best ventilation products available we ensure the best airflow possible for your attic! With an increase of up to 1000% in airflow you can expect the lifetime of your shingles to live their full 25-30 year lifespan.

After your roof has been repaired the mold remediation process begins. All mold infested insulation is removed and all soffits are cleaned out to allow proper ventilation. Baffles are also installed to prevent the soffits from being re-clogged with insulation. The next step is fitting proper bathroom exhaust vents (improper washroom ventilation is a major cause of attic mold infestation, with roof leaks being the number one cause). Warm, moist air rising from showers and bathtubs vents directly into your attic hot zones and must be sealed properly. Furthermore, a special mold killing solution is fogged throughout your attic and a higher R-value insulation is installed. Lastly the fog solution is applied a second time to ensure the highest degree of mold killing saturation possible. These process, though tedious, prevent any and all possibilities of future infections.  

After we have completed your home, we then warranty our mold remediation work for 10 years (10 times longer than most companies!) and our complete roof installation work for 25 years! Making our warranties the best in the business!
