As an experienced roofing contractor, we highly recommend installing ridge vents for roofs in our area. A vented attic works in cold, hot, and mixed climates and here’s how it will benefit your home. When it’s cold, ventilation will remove moisture from your attic and helps prevent ice dams. When it’s hot, ventilation will expel solar-heated hot air from your attic, reducing your building’s cooling load. We can install ridge vents that will accomplish all of these goals.

Why is Roof Ventilation Important?
Simply put, it can improve your home’s energy efficiency and minimize problems like ice dams. The US Federal Housing Administration also recommends a minimum of at least 1 square foot of attic ventilation for every 300 square feet of attic space. A proper attic ventilation system will allow a continuous flow of outside air through your attic, helping lower temperatures in your living space and protecting the efficiency of the insulation. Attic ventilation also protects your roofing system and prevents premature aging of your shingles.
