What kind of roof vents are available for my home?
Box Vents: Box vents are also called low profile vents, louvers, flat vents, turtle vents, or static vents. This means they have no moving parts. The vent is installed over a hole cut out of the roof. They create an opening for the rising hot air and moisture to escape through.
Ridge Vents: Ridge vents have no moving parts and as indicated by their name, are installed on the ridge of the roof. A ridge vent should run the entire length of the roof’s horizontal ridge, blending into the roofline for a more attractive home. Ridge vents combined with under eave venting (soffit) is the most efficient system you can install.
Soffit Vents: Soffit Vents provide a means of air intake into the roof’s ventilation system. They are installed in soffits and eaves and are most effective when used in conjunction with a continuous ridge vent.
Intake Shingle Vent: Intake shingles vents are a newer product out there at the market. Roof-top installation eliminates working overhead with soffits, under eaves. Passed 30-day ice dam test.
