Roof vents provide a system in which the outside air is quietly passed through to your roof and attic space. When the temperature outside increases, the air in your roof heats up and rises to the surface. Once it passes through the gaps already existing in your roof’s peak, the roof vent naturally draws in cooler outside air through its soffits, to replace the air that has just left.
Roof vents boast several advantages over other roof vent systems. Firstly, because of the drawn in outside air from the highest point of a roof, they allow for a more efficient air-flow. This kind of system is most suited to places such as bathrooms and kitchens. Additionally, roof ridge vents can be installed with minimum interference to the existing roof structure, and can be supported by the colors and textures to match your roof. Because most industrial or commercial buildings are flat roofed, ridgeline vents are more generally used as residential roof vents.
