Ventilation

Maintenance

Natural roof ventilation can help maintain uniform roof temperatures. Movement of cold air in the attic will help keep the entire interior roof surface cold. If you have small louvered windows at either end of the attic, known as gable vents, you may be able to replace them with larger ones to improve ventilation.

If the house's roof overhangs the outside walls, add soffit vents into these overhangs to improve ventilation. Improve the overall ventilation system even further with a ridge vent that sits along the length of the peak of the roof.  Cold air entering the soffit vents rises along the inside of the roof and exits through the ridge vent, cooling the roof and removing moisture.

FAQ's

Q. Can I paint my gutters?
