Types of Roof Vents

There are many things to take into consideration when you have new roofing installed. You may not have considered the different types of roof vents you might need. These vents can make your roof last longer if they are installed correctly.

Intake Vents

Soffit vents. As the name suggests, these vents are located underneath the roof eaves and run along the roofline. These vents should provide enough airflow to the attic. You should ensure that blown-in insulation doesn’t block vents or cause problems with ventilation.

Roof Intake Vents. These are another option for intake vents. They are used most often when your roof has no soffit. They are located on top of your roof and allow air to flow through. They are low-profile, so they will not be visible from the ground. They can blend in with any type of roof they are attached to.

Exhaust Vents

Ridge Vents. These vents are located at the top of the roof at the ridge. These vents are usually located where the two sloped portions of the roof meet. They are useful for catching wind and helping to pull moist and heated air from the attic.

Static Roof Vents. These are also called roof louvers and are placed flat on the roof near the ridge. They are also known as slant backs and box vents. They allow air to escape from the roof easily.

Wind Turbines: You may have seen them on roofs. These are made of circular unit that has blades. The wind blows and turns them into a fan. This allows air to be pulled out of the attic and blown away.
