Soffit, box vents, ridge vents, and other forms of attic ventilation are installed by Providence Roofing for worry-free attic ventilation!
Roof ventilation is sometimes disregarded since individuals are more concerned with keeping their roofs leak-free and their homes dry. But did you know that a well-ventilated roof may assist with a variety of difficulties, including preventing premature roof wear and keeping moisture out of your attic?
WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL TO HAVE A PROPERLY VENTED ROOF?
- Roof circulation is beneficial all year round.
- The roof's airflow and ventilation are uniformly distributed.
- The efficiency of the vent will not be affected by changes in the weather.
- During the summer, a well-ventilated roof allows hot air in the attic to escape, lowering the strain on your air conditioning system.
- In the winter, adequate roof ventilation paired with enough attic insulation will keep the roof surface cool, preventing snow from melting and freezing, resulting in ice jams.
- Mold, fungus, and mildew do not grow in attics and crawl spaces with proper ventilation. Wood rot is caused by the same environmental factors that cause mold.
HERE ARE THE TYPES OF ROOF VENTS THAT NEEDED FOR YOUR HOME
- Box Vents: Also called low profile vents, louvers, flat vents, turtle vents, or static vents. They don't have any moving components, thus this is a good thing. The vent is put above a hole in the roof that has been carved out. They make a hole through which rising hot air and moisture may escape.
- Ridge Vents: Ridge vents have no moving components and are situated on the roof's ridge, as their name suggests. For a more appealing residence, a ridge vent should run the length of the roof's horizontal ridge, integrating into the roofline. Ridge vents paired with soffit venting (under an eave) are the most efficient solution available.
- Soffit Vents: Soffit Vents serve as a source of air for the roof's ventilation system. They're positioned in the soffits and eaves and work best when combined with a continuous ridge vent.
- Intake Shingle Vent: Intake shingle vents are a relatively new product on the market. Working overhead with soffits and beneath eaves is eliminated with roof-top installation. The 30-day ice dam test was successfully completed.
