When Orange County Roofers install a new roof, shingles won’t be the only matter on their minds. Many factors will be considered before the hammering and tearing begins. One of these factors is ventilation. Virtually all roofs have this means of moving air in and out of a home.
Two types of ventilation are available to the homeowner. Depending on circumstances, a professional may install either one -- or both. The ‘active’ kind draws outside air into a designated room, typically an attic. ‘Passive’ ventilation, on the other hand, works by circulating air throughout a specified room. The source for this air often is wind or some other natural phenomena. Rest assured, each type performs its job admirably.
To generate the needed airflow, an Orange County Roofing Company must install some type of vent. A vent may be either intake or exhaust, each with a distinct mode of operation. An intake vent draws in cool air and sends it into a desired room. In contrast, the exhaust variety literally forces warm air out of a room, thereby reducing interior temperatures. Again, the choice of vent depends on various factors, including budget, rooftop location, climate, and affected room. A qualified professional takes all these variables into account before recommending options to homeowners.
Orange County Roofers also must consider roof characteristics when choosing a vent or vents. What’s the square footage of the roof? Its slope? These and other vital questions will be answered before a decision is made.
