Options For Attic Ventilation

Options For Attic Ventilation

Attics are commonly used for storage of old clothes and luggage. But, the area above your living space is a big factor in the condition of your home. Over the past few decades people have begun to realize how important attic insulation is to room temperatures. Ventilation is needed as well, according to experts, as it also protects the area from moisture damage.

When deciding on the most effective attic ventilation system for your home, there are a few things you’ll need to know. First, climb up into the attic and assess your current situation. If you feel like you just stepped into a sauna, chances are you’ve got poor ventilation. Also check for signs of moisture, like mold, mildew, rust, damp insulation or rotted wood. Then, look for vents already in place in areas like ridges, gables, soffits and eaves.

To find out how much ventilation you will need, make an estimation of your attic’s square footage. Manufacturers suggest adding 20% more square footage to your calculation if your roof pitch is between 7/12 and 10/12. Add 30% if it’s steeper than that. With a figure established, plan to install one square foot of ventilation for every 150 square feet of space you have in your attic.

The options used for attic ventilation vary, but each one is useful and provides good air flow. Generally, one solution will not solve all problems. In order to have a balanced ventilation system you’ll want to have 50 percent of the ventilating area dedicated to exhaust vents in the upper portion of the attic and the other 50 percent to intake vents. Carefully comparing all the options before installing is highly recommended.

Exhaust

Ridge Vent

Along the peak of your roof is where the ridge vent goes. It is a ventilation strip. Cut a one inch wide strip of roof deck on both sides of the ridge line before installing the ridge vent. This should be done by a professional. Ridge vents, when installed properly, will help the hot air that has risen to escape while preventing rainwater from getting in.

Gable Vents

The gable end of the home is where this particular vent is installed. The vent lets air flow out of the upper portion of your attic, but it blocks moisture so that rain and snow will not be an issue.

Intake

Soffit/Eave Vents

The soffit, or eave, is the surface area under your roof’s overhang, and it’s the perfect location to pull in cool air. With optimal air flow (intake and exhaust) you will be able to reduce heat and moisture buildup, prevent ice dams, reduce energy costs, and extend the life of your roof.

Attic Fans

Fans installed in addition to ventilation can help homes handle this task of moving air. These fans are typically controlled by using the thermostat. When the device detects heat in the attic, it automatically exhausts the attic space. If a home is located in an area that gets good sunlight, a solar device can be used.

More Options

Depending on how your house was designed, other options may be available. These options consists of dormers and mushroom vents.

Metal Roofing Prices – The Highs and the Lows

Metal Roofing Prices – The Highs and the Lows

It probably happens once a week – we receive a set of drawings or blueprints with a request to “price a metal roof” for the owner or contractor supplying the plans. And every time, we ask the same question first – “What KIND of metal roof?” We can’t take one step forward without a reply, because there are literally hundreds of possible answers to such a request!

The type of metal, the thickness of the metal, the finish on the metal and the shape of the roof formed with that metal are all variables that affect the price of the metal roof materials. In addition, the contractor who might install the metal roof will offer a wide range of prices according to the preparation, slope and complexity of the job – in addition to the subtleties peculiar to the different metal roof options. As an example, have a look at the two different photos that accompany this post. They’re both “metal roofs” that we’ve supplied, but there’s almost no similarity otherwise between the two, and the price for one metal roof would give you no useful close as to the price of the other metal roof.

Value Panel | Metal Roof NetworkA thin gauge, simple design metal roof with a 4:12 pitch “gable to gable” home might cost less that $2 a square foot for the materials and even less for the labor, whereas a heavyweight copper or zinc roof in a complex profile with custom accessories on a steep, detailed roof could easily cost 10 times as much! Apples and oranges, really.

With that in mind, here are the things that you need to decide before requesting prices for a metal roof: 

  • What type of metal do you prefer?
  • What style of metal roof do you want – ribs, shingles, tiles, diamonds
  • What type of finish are you after – a solid color, a bare metal
  • What level of detail are you after – simple or customized?

At least have some idea of your answers to these basic questions when you begin comparing. If even these questions aren’t clear to you, then contacting a metal roofing price specialist like Metal Roof Network will help narrow the field and make pricing your new metal roof a lot easier.
