Efficient roof ventilation is essential to any property. When you are having a roof installed or replaced, it is often necessary to check to make sure that there is also proper roof ventilation. You can always expect for our roofing professionals at Oakland Roofing Pros to do this, as they realize that inefficient roof ventilation will shorten the life of a roof. When there is not good air circulation, your homes attic gets extremely hot. In the winter, too much moisture can develop. This can create warped sheathing and premature aging of the roofs shingles. When you have an attic that is properly ventilated, you can often avoid such problems.
Proper Attic Ventilation
Our roofing contractors can offer you proper attic ventilation by creating a continuous flow of outside air. Since hot air will rise in the attic, it will also escape at the peak of the roof, through roof fans, gable vents, and ridge vents. When hot air escapes, it also pulls in cooler air outside at the lowest point of the roof. This often occurs through the soffit vents, under the eaves. Proper attic ventilation will help reduce excessive heat and moisture in your attic.
Common Roof Ventilation Issues
There might be a variety of things that are obstructing airflow or that creates insufficient air intake. Here are some of the most common roof ventilation issues:
- Ridge vents installed with other attic vents – The only way that the ridge vents can be effective is by closing off any other vents except the soffit intakes.
- Low working power ventilators – The powered ventilator my have stopped working without your knowledge.
- Interior exhaust ducts that are venting in the attic – All exhaust vents have to be vented to the outside, not toward the attic.
- Improperly installed soffit vent baffles: If the soffit baffles are not properly installed, you will notice a problem with the air intake.
