Maintaining proper airflow and temperature for your roof.
Ventilation is an important part of any roofing system and understanding how to achieve proper in-take and out-take requirements on your home is important. There are many products on the market to help with this.
- Ridge Vents
- Wind Turbines
- Eave Vents
- Box Vents
Picking the right product for your roof type requires an informative advisor who understands the product and how they are intended to function. Many times we see ventilation products incorrectly installed on roofing systems throughout Vancouver because of a lack of product knowledge in combination with roofing system requirements. Many roof have either an insufficient amount of venting for in-take and out-take on homes or sometimes we see multiple ventilation products install throughout a roof incorrectly. Unfortunately this can be a quite common error made in the roofing industry and we strongly recommend discussing these requirements with your advisor reviewing ventilation products for your re-roof project.
How to Calculate Required Ventilation:
The basic rule of thumb for calculating the correct ventilation required for your roofing field is 1 sqft of combined 50/50 ratio of in-take and out-take per 300 sqft of attic floor area. Let us advise on which products will provide you with the desired ventilation requirements while maintain an aesthetically pleasing finished product that is both functional and eye-catching while staying on budget.
