Why Is Roof Ventilation Necessary?

Roof ventilation is vital to the overall health of your home. Ventilation keeps the roof cold enough in the winter months to prevent leaks and pushes hot air out of the house during the summer months to prevent moisture build up and high cooling costs.

Intake Vents

CONTINUOUS SOFFIT VENTS

Continuous soffit vents are long, narrow vents placed along a soffit. These static vents draw outside air up into the attic to ventilate it.

INDIVIDUAL SOFFIT VENTS

Individual soffit vents function the same way continuous soffit vents do. The only difference is that they are individual units placed in between soffit joists.

DRIP EDGE VENTS

Drip edge vents are ideal for homes with little to no soffit area. This vent type is better suited to warmer climates, as ice dams can easily build up in these vents during the winter.

Exhaust Vents

BOX VENTS

Box vents are static vents that use wind-flow to move hot air and moisture out of your home. These low-profile vents are most efficient when paired with soffit vents.

RIDGE VENTS

Ridge vents are static vents that are placed alongside the entire horizontal ridge of the roof. These vents are most effective when paired with soffit venting.

GABLE VENTS

Gable vents are a stylish ventilation option placed underneath the gabled soffits of your roof. These vents usually need to be paired with another type of vent to properly ventilate a roof.

WIND TURBINES (AKA WHIRLYBIRDS)

These wind-powered vents draw hot air and moisture out of the home by spinning. When the wind is blowing, these vents are very efficient.

POWER VENTS

These vents are powered by electric motors and can be programmed to only turn on when the home reaches a certain temperature or humidity level.
