Roof Vents or Ventilation Systems

Roof vents are a must for proper air circulation within your roof, particularly if your dwelling is located in a hot climate. Not only can poor ventilation substantially increase your heating bill in the summertime, it can also damage your installation and shingles, shortening the life expectancy of your roof.

In wintertime, poor air circulation can lead to moisture being trapped inside the roof, which can cause condensation and eventually mold and rot. The addition of air intake and exhaust vents in your roof will help to improve air circulation, giving you a cooler home with lower heating bills.

The general guideline for roof vents is

For every 300 square feet of attic floor space, have about one square foot of ventilation area. If your roof is made of asphalt shingles, you must have ventilation or you’re at risk of voiding your warranty, which can set you back potentially thousands of dollars if your roof needs repairs or to be replaced in the future.
