Roof Repair
Roofer911 quickly respond to our call. We called with a concern of possible chronic, slow leak. Roofer911 was willing to come on a rainy day and look at the situation even though we were not 100% sure that the leak is still present. It turns out that Roofer911 found several problems that two previous roofers did not detect. The issue was fixed on the same day, and there has been no problem since. Roofer911 also gave great assurance with 1-yr warranty.

Types of Soffit Vents

January 14, 2012 by - 1 Comments

Did you like this?

soffit ventsSoffit vents are important components for homeowners to consider for their roof. Many attic and roof ailments go away by making sure that your roof is adequately ventilated. You have a choice of installing either round vents or continuous vents. Their function is to allow condensation and moisture to escape from the attic, which protects the roof from suffering from mold, mildew and dry rot. This occurs from the extreme overheating and rapid cooling which can happen during both summer and winter months. Each style has its own benefits and problems.

Round Vents

Round vents for your soffits tend to stick out and interrupt the flow of the roof as well as suffer more damage during stormy weather. Being able to fit the round shape in your attic is the first requirement for installing them. They are also not as powerful as the continuous style. On a positive note, the round vents are actually easier to install and less expensive. That means you may be able to let your roofer have a holiday, unless you make a total mess and he has to come and perform a roof replacement for you.

Continuous Vents

Roofing companies often recommend the continuous style because the more ventilation to your attic, the better for your roof. They are more expensive, but they also can extend the natural longevity of your roof, which means thousands of dollars saved. They are more complicated to install so the best thing you can do for yourself and your roof is to call your roofer and have him install the soffit vents for you.

Great article and yes, continuous are always the best. The homeowner has to remember that baffles are also important too.

Roof Repair, Infrared
Unbelievable service! I called about window and door leaks on a Friday afternoon and those issues along with other problems that I didn't even know existed were resolved by the following morning. I will definitely be calling Roofer911 to do an annual inspection of my gutter system.
