If your roof or attic space is not ventilated properly you could be looking at the following problems:

  • Water vapor condensing on metal causing rust
  • In colder temperatures mixing with warmer temperatures in roof/attic causes frost then dry rot
  • Mildew it damages your roof and is bad for your health.
  • Deteriorates your roofing system prematurely
  • Servicing of cooling units have to be done more frequently
  • Ice dams melting snow refreezing, causing leaks

With the use of a proper attic ventilation system all of these causes are eliminated or greatly reduced. For a vent to be at its most effective it has to be measured by its Net Free Vent Area. Precise calculation is needed when working out where to place vents to be at their most effective.

You may ask what the best type of ventilation to use is. You need both intake ventilation and exhaust ventilation. This combination gives you maximum air circulation. The best is continuous soffit and ridge ventilation. However, with roofing in Orlando Florida, off-ridge vents are commonly used due to wind blown rain tends to infiltrate the home easier with continuous ridge vents
