The dormer is installed in a roofing system basically for two reasons. The most common reason is to increase or enlarge a space. It is usually done in a bonus room or in an attic. The second reason is so that is creates additional breathing space in the attic.

Our Trick at Charlotte Ace Roofing

The trick that we use at Charlotte Ace Roofing to identify what the house has is by looking at the face, or gable of the dormer. When the dormer has windows, it is used to create additional room. But when the face has a louvered vent, then it is used to assist with ventilation of the attic and the roof. Most residential housings are use dormers to increase the space in the attic. 

What could be the issues with roof dormers?

Usually, some of the most common issues with roof dormers are that they create a great place for leaks. It is always required to put flashing all around the sides of a roof dormer. If this doesn’t get done right, the roof dormer will turn into a great spot for a leak to start. Also, the roofing contractors are required to install certain flashing a certain way. All the roofing manufacturers have this information available to the public.
