Does Your Roof Need Roof Intake Ventilation?

Nov 22, 2021

Proper airflow inside your home keeps things cool, comfortable, and healthy on the inside. Your roof plays a crucial part in this airflow, because it needs to allow just enough (but not too much) air inside. We talk a lot about the importance of ridge vents, but another way to let a roof breathe is to use roof intake ventilation.

Ridge Vent vs Roof Intake Ventilation

A ridge vent is installed at the crest of a sloped roof to allow humid, warm air to escape from the attic. When properly installed, a ridge vent improves energy efficiency and extends the life of your roof.

Roof intake vents are used in the same way, allowing outside airflow into attics and ventilation spaces. Roof intake vents are located along a roofing system’s lowest eave. These types of vents are best used with exhaust vents that are located at or near a roof’s peak.

Even if your home has no attic, air circulation is still necessary to prevent heat from building up and causing damage to your roofing system, and eventually the inside of your home.


How Do You Know if Your Roof is Properly Ventilated?

If you’re not sure if your roof is able to breathe properly, or that you have enough roof ventilation, give us a call. We offer free inspections and have fixed hundreds of roofing systems with either ridge vents or roof intake ventilation. By doing so we ensure our clients’ roofs last their full expected lifespan rather than developing rot, mold, and damaged shingles due to lack of proper ventilation.

Every aspect of this project was handled professionally and effectively by Surf & Turf. They communicated everything we needed to know well in advance. The project managers had everything well under control. The installers were truly amazing! This was probably one of the most challenging roofs they have replaced this year. Great care was taken to protect our home and our neighbors' properties. Surf and Turf was prepared, and cleaned up beautifully! Thank you Surf and Turf!!

Surf & turf roofing returned my call immediately. They sent a inspector out within a few days to discuss the job of having gutters installed. They started our job the following Monday as promised. They did a beautiful job of putting up seamless gutters. I like where they installed all the downspouts and the fact that they were secured properly. I am extremely pleased with the job they did and would recommend this company to anyone!

From start to finish Surf & Turf was great to deal with. Pricing was fantastic and they were the only estimate out of (5) that I received that actually inspected the roof and didn’t rely on remote satellite images. The crew they sent were top notch, pleasant to deal with and did a fantastic job overall. My front and backyard looked immaculate after they left. Thank you again for a great job, I will not hesitate to recommend your services.
