Metal Roofing Ventilation Charlottesville VA
Part 1 Ventilation 101
This is a two part blog about metal roofing ventilation for Charlottesville VA. One thing that I have noticed is that not too many contractors or roofers understanding the importance of ventilation for attics or for roofing systems. In this part on blog I’m going to focus on ventilation in the attic. Have you even wondered why some attics are a lot hotter than others in the summer. Most of this is due to poor ventilation, if you have ridge vents in your roof which allows a way for the hot air in the attic to escape, but no way for the air to enter at the bottom of your attic you are doing a disservice to yourself. For air to escape you must have a new way for air to enter, Hot air always rises, so as the hot air heats up and rises you need a way for the fresh cooler air to enter. The proper way for this is through a soffit vent or through our custom metal roof vent which is placed at the bottom of the roof when the roof is installed. Our custom metal roof entry ven allow for fresh air to enter below the metal roof and flow into your attic. This is very important to many old houses that do not have any soffits or way to vent air into their attics from the bottom of the roof area. We have made a video what I have linked to it below that shows a sample and that I will explain exactly how this process works. In Part two I will talk about Vented J Channel and how we installed a complete patented roof ventilation system in addition to venting the attic.
