The Homeowner’s Guide to Roofing and Attic Ventilation

Attic ventilation enables air to circulate and reduce moisture levels in the area. This then protects your roof from damage that may be caused by moisture. In this post, roofing and siding replacement expert High Performance Homes discusses the benefits of good attic ventilation and the different types of vents that you can install.

Why Roof Ventilation Is Important

These are the main advantages that you can expect from attic ventilation:

1. It helps moderate temperatures in the attic, which then contributes to balancing the temperatures in the other areas of your home.

2. It prevents heat buildup so that your home’s energy efficiency can be maintained.

3. It prevents moisture buildup in the attic. This is especially important during winter when condensation issues are common and can cause damage to the materias in your attic.

Types of Roof Vents

When installing roof vents, make sure to hire the best roofing company so that you can be properly guided regarding the different types of roof vent that you can use. Here are some of the roof vents commonly installed in homes:

1. Soffit vents – located on the soffit of the roof or the underside of the overhang of the roof

2. Ridge vents – placed along the peak of the roof and often used as an exhaust vent

3. Gable vents – found on the roofing gables

If your attic has a vapor barrier, experts recommend installing one vent for every 300 square feet of attic area. If your attic does not have a vapor barrier, you should have one vent for every 150 square feet of attic area.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
