Roof ventilation plays a vital role in ensuring a comfortable home. Roof vents provide proper attic ventilation. They permit free movement of the air in the ventilation spaces. As such, it is important to install proper roof vents to maintain good ventilation. Creative Construction Group, Inc., your community’s top choice for residential roof installation services, presents the different types of roof vents.
Soffit vents are one of the most popular intake vents. They are easy to install under the roof’s overhang, or soffit. Their narrow slits allow space for airflow resulting in proper ventilation. Take care that dirt or debris does not hamper the free flow of air in the attic.
Ridge vents distribute temperature throughout the length of the roof’s ridge. They blend into the roofline and make the home look more attractive. They do not depend on wind flow and so provide significant performance throughout the year. They aid in postponing roof aging and preserve the value of your roof. They protect the roof from moisture and heat and offer uniform ventilation in the attic. Creative Construction Group installs the right ridge vents in a residential roof repair.
Also known as the Whirlybird vent, this offers more airflow than the other vents. It does not have motors but relies only on the wind. As the wind blows, the moving parts of the vent draw out the hot air and moisture from the attic ventilating the roof.
Power Attic Vents
Power Attic Vents (PAV) rely on a power source to remove the heat from the attic. The motors inside these vents are smooth and quiet running. The only drawback is that they run on electricity, which adds up to the cost. Still, you can select the model that runs on solar energy. Your commercial roof replacement contractor can do the right installation of these vents.
