When it comes to your home, roof ventilation is very important. A properly vented roof helps keep your home cool during the summer. It also prevents warm air from building up in your attic, cauing snow to partially melt during the winter. In addition to experiencing issues such as ice damming, a roof with the improper type or number of vents can actually void the warranty on your home’s shingles. Improper or insufficient venting can prematurely age your home’s shingles, with the excess internal heat causing them to curl.
When you look are at roof tops in your neighbourhood, you may notice different types of roof vents. Sometimes you may even see two different types of vents on the same house. However, just because you see it does not mean that it’s right. Most roofing product providers do not allow both roof vents and whirlybirds to be installed together on the same house due to insufficient air flow. Whirlybirds will take the path of least resistance, often pulling air from the nearest roof vent instead of from the soffit area. This type of improper venting can void your shingle warranty.
Our Venting Products
We offer many different venting products to help with your home’s ventilation needs. We highly recommend Duraflo ventilation products, as they offer a wide selection of high quality products to cater to different house and roof designs.
The WeatherPro ProTurbo Vent has the same look and profile as a traditional whirlybird, but has no moving parts. This type of vent can be installed alongside other ventilation products without causing any issues with your warranty. The WeathPro ProTurbo provides significant airflow to your attic space and comes in a variety of colours to compliment your shingles and siding.
Another product we highly recommend is the Weather Pro 50 Vent. This product is leading the way in the vent protection industry, featuring a lower profile design than competitors. The Weather Pro 50 has an interior maze structure which makes it impossible for any outside elements to enter your home through the vent.
We also offer a fibre meshed continuous ridge vent. This type of vent allows adequate air flow and prevents the outdoor elements from entering your attic space. Typically, this product is used for homes with vaulted ceilings or open beam structures, where normal roof vents do not allow for proper air flow.
