Roof Ventilation Enhances Roof Performance and Efficiency

 In Blog, Roof Installation, Roof Replacement, Roof ventilation

For your roof to perform at its best, you need ventilation. Any reputable roofing contractor will include roof ventilation in their assessment of your roof, creating a balanced roofing system that allows air to flow in and out of your Attic space.

Types of Roofing Vents

Ventilation is crucial in energy efficiency and expanding the life of your roof. The types of vents you need will depend on your home and the roofing system. Before hiring a roofing contractor, be sure to discuss the different types of ventilation available. 

The best four types of Attic Ventilation:

Roof Ventilation is Crucial To Roof Performance

A roof needs both intake and exhaust vents to perform optimally.

  • Ridge vents (exhaust)
  • Box vents (exhaust)
  • Power attic vents (exhaust)
  • Soffit vents (intake)

Why Roof Ventilation is Important

Ventilation is the key to a high-functioning roofing system. Proper ventilation ensures that hot, moist air can escape, preventing condensation and keeping your attic dry, while maintaining reasonable attic temperatures, cutting down energy consumption, and increasing the longevity of roofing materials. 

Heated air becomes pressurized. Without a vent, pressurized air may escape to other areas in your home and cause problems. 

Intake and Exhaust Roof Ventilation

Every roof should have a combination of intake and exhaust ventilation to perform optimally. Creating a smooth air passage will protect your roofing structure and maintain a good indoor climate. 

Without both intake and exhaust ventilation, your attic could become a breeding ground for mold mildew and create an unhealthy environment. If left untreated, moisture problems can eventually cause damage to your roofing structure and impact the safety of your home. 

Talk to your roofing contractor about exhaust vents that allow bad air to exit your home, while the intake vents allow cool, fresh air to enter, creating the proper airflow and a highly functioning roofing system.
