Typical Roofing Ventilation Options for the Wichita, KS Area
To protect your home, it is important to have a properly vented attic. This can be achieved through a combination of intake venting in the eaves or soffits for new air and exhaust venting gables, deck or ridge vents in order for warm humid air flow to escape. These vents work in conjunction with each other to provide a balanced, constant flow of cool, dry air throughout the attic.
The Benefits of Proper Roof Ventilation
With properly installed roof ventilation, this will reduce the overall attic temperatures and moisture. This decreases the probability of mold growth and the decay of wood rafters and ceiling joists; which in turns prevents the decking from sagging and ensures the manufacturer warranty is not voided.
