Best Types of Roofing Vents

What Vents Work On Your Roof?

You can reach us at Town and Country Roofing if you need help with applying a vent on your roof. A vent allows moisture to escape from your house and make it easier for you to keep your home from being at risk of excess moisture.

Your home will take in plenty of moisture every day. From taking a shower to boiling water, added moisture can spread around your home.

Vents allow the moisture and vapor to escape your home, thus preventing your roof shingles from curling and becoming weak. They also keep the walls inside your home from becoming dull, not to mention sites that pests might persist.

Vents can also keep your home from becoming too warm. You could reduce your cooling costs when you have enough vents around your roof. You’ll also enjoy how your home’s inside humidity levels will stay regular.

But what types of vents could you use around your roof? 

You can ask us at Town and Country Roofing to help you with installing one of the many vents for your convenience. Here’s a look at a few of the top vents for your roof.

Ridge Vents

A ridge vent is a vent that will appear along with the angled spots around your roof. The vent will feature a solid top with openings on the sides to allow moisture and air to leave home. 

The design can work around many parts of your roof, although they can work best around the top sections. Keeping a ridge vent at the top spot on your roof ensures that the air and moisture will move out well without anything sticking around far too much.

Gable Vents

Gable vents are also helpful things to add to your roof. A gable vent features a body that allows breezes to move through while ensuring hot air moves out of your attic. The design keeps the outside wind from entering your home as well. You can use gable vents if you have a few gabled sides on your roof.

Turbine Vents

A turbine vent features a small fan body. The vent will move air from inside your home and push it out with a small turbine. Most of these are wind power sources. The sturdy design should make it easier for the air to move through well without creating any obstructions or other concerns.

Soffit Vents

You can also apply soffit vents to your roof if you prefer. A vent like this appears on the soffit, which is the area located under the eaves. Fresh air will enter your roof to keep warm air from being a hassle. 

The vent should also have enough of a filter to keep excess moisture from entering your home. The design allows air to move through efficiently and with ease.
