Roof Ventilation

The primary purpose for the installation and use of both roof and attic ventilation is to allow heat and humidity to escape the roof area. The roof area collect a considerable amount of sun and become heated, in turn heating the air which becomes trapped underneath the roof, the attic. As well, heat and condensation rising from within the house structure can become trapped in the attic area underneath the roof surface, causing a heat and or moisture build-up.

To prevent a build-up of heat and moisture from occurring, roof vents are used. The ventilation unit prevents the possible damage of rain, snow, or moisture. It should be designed to keep insects, reptiles, and other possible invaders out of the roof. A ventilated attic will help in the prevention of rotting, dry wall damage, mildew, peeling of paint etc.; it will also prevent the moisture from being trapped and damaging the materials inside the roof.
