A properly installed roof ventilation system is an important part of your roof. Without a working ventilation system, hot air can build up in your attic, which can cause ice dams to form in the winter and can cause heat to radiate from the attic to the rest of the house during the summers. A roof ventilation system typically consists of intake and exhaust vents.
One of the most common types of exhaust vents are ridge vents. Here at Exterior Contractor, we like to use GAF's cobra ridge vents. These vents get installed on the ridges and allow warm air to exit the roof while simultaneously protecting your ridge opening from the rain. For more information about these vents, please visit GAF's website.
