Ridge Vents & Roof Ventilation

AmeriPro Roofing installs soffit, gable, & ridge vents for worry-free attic ventilation!

Keeping your roof leak-free and your house dry is important, but it’s not the only step you can take to look after your property. A well-ventilated roof can protect your home, too. Roof ventilation can help lower heating and cooling costs, prevent weather damage and ensure the long-lasting use of your roof.

When you want to keep your home safe, AmeriPro Roofing can help. We perform roof ventilation installations and repairs so you can better enjoy the look of your roof and the comfort of your home.

Why is Roof Ventilation Important?

Adequate roof ventilation is critical to the overall maintenance and protection of your home.

Improving Airflow

A roof vent has an air space beneath it that allows for air to pass along the top of the building under the roof and escape. A ridge vent installation will reduce moisture and stagnate air, helping to protect your roof and home from damage.

Keeping the Roof Cool

Vents allow hot air to escape from under your roof, keeping the surface cooler throughout the year. Without a vent, the hot air would be trapped inside your roof, causing shingles to break down quickly in the summer. In the winter, snow on your roof could melt and form ice dams, leading to water leaks.

Reducing Humidity Levels

Proper ventilation prevents mold, wood rot and mildew growth within your roof by decreasing the moisture trapped in the area. With ventilation, your roof will have lower humidity levels that will protect it from mold or rot damage.

Saving Energy

Proper insulation combined with a strong ventilation system keeps the air in your attic out of your home and reduces your heating and cooling costs. Hot air can escape, reducing the demand on your air conditioner during the summer and preventing melted snow during the winter.

More Benefits of Roof Ventilation

In addition to improving airflow throughout your roof, ventilation systems:

  • Work to your advantage year-round.
  • Evenly distribute airflow below the roof.
  • Blend well with the roof and, in some cases, can be quite decorative.
  • Resist weather changes, remaining effective from season to season.

What Kind of Roof Vents Can Be Installed for My Home?

AmeriPro Roofing provides various roof ventilation installations and repairs to help you stay comfortable and safe in your home. We have the skills and tools to accommodate your home’s needs, from ridge vent repair to soffit vent installation.

Box Vents

A box vent on a roof can also be called a low-profile, flat, turtle or static vent. Another name for this type of vent is a louver. It has no moving parts, providing simple yet effective functions. A roof box vent installation involves cutting a hole out of the roof and placing the vent on top, letting rising hot air and moisture escape.

Wind Turbines

Wind-driven roof turbine vents work much like box vents, allowing heat and moisture to escape through a hole. The difference is that when the wind is blowing, turbine vents move more air than box vents by spinning and drawing hot air and moisture up out of the attic. A turbine vent installation is a simple way to take advantage of the wind to keep your roof cool.

Power Roof Vents

Power ventilators use motor-powered fans to pull hot air and moisture out of the attic. Some power roof vent installations come with thermostats and humidistats, which trigger when the attic reaches a specific temperature. A roof power vent repair or installation will ensure your roof has proper airflow.

Ridge Vents

Roof ridge vents are installed on the roof’s ridge and have no moving parts. They run the length of the roof, blending into the roofline. The most efficient system you can install is a ridge vent combined with a vented soffit.

Soffit Vents

A soffit exhaust vent provides a way for air to travel through the roof. These roof vents are installed in soffits and eaves. A soffit vent repair or installation is a subtle way to bring adequate airflow to your roof. These vents are especially effective when used with a continuous ridge vent.

Cupola Vents

Many times when you see a cupola roof, it’s mainly for decoration. These installations can sometimes be functioning static roof vents, though. A roof cupola sits atop a ridge and allows hot air and moisture to rise and escape the building. They usually fill a support role to another roof vent system since they are limited in their abilities.
