Some components of your roofing system are not as noticeable as the shingles, but are no less important. Take the ridge vents, for example. Their purpose is to allow air to flow unhindered throughout the attic space. Their job looks simple on paper, but this can provide a host of excellent advantages covering both your roof and home. Right Angle Roofing & Siding, the trusted residential roofer in the area, shares how ridge vents can benefit you.
- Extend your roof’s life. The fact about heat is that it rises naturally. When it’s unable to escape your attic, it will gradually bake the shingles on your roof, causing them to age prematurely. This won’t be an issue when you have ridge vents installed, however. They run the entire length of your roof to provide smooth and consistent airflow in the attic, helping prevent excess heat and moisture-laden air from being trapped inside the space.
- Keep the roof structure intact. The continuous and reliable ventilation generated by ridge vents can also maintain the structural integrity of your roofing system. By preventing attic heat and moisture buildup, they help eliminate the risk of mold and rot in the roof decking and rafters. The quality of the ridge vents can affect how well they provide sufficient ventilation. As a GAF® Certified Master Elite® roofing company, Right Angle Roofing & Siding, offers advanced and effective Cobra® Rigid vents that allow heat and moisture to escape your roof at the ridge. With their superior performance, you can expect your roof structure to remain sturdy and intact.
- Maintain your home’s thermal comfort. Because the ridge vents help keep a cooler roof, there’s less chance of unwanted outdoor heat compromising your home’s indoor environment. Your living spaces can remain cool in the summer–but you won’t need to rely as much on your air conditioning system. This, in turn, translates to lower energy costs.
