Airflow & the Importance of Ventilation

Ventilation is an important part of your attic and roof. Without a proper ventilation system, a whole host of problems can arise, from wood frame cracking and warping to shingle damage. Essentially, airflow goes from low to high in a roof, and it needs to go out the top rather than accumulating on the underside. Ventilation is needed for this. Many older homes, built between 1950 – 1970 don’t have ventilation. This is where we can help.

Attic ventilation (attic fans and vents) helps ensure proper airflow so that moisture from daily activities, such as cooking, showering and washing dishes and clothes, doesn’t accumulate in the attic and damage the underside of the roof.

A proper attic ventilation consists of intake and exhaust—air must come in and also escape. The U.S. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recommends a minimum of at least 1 square foot of both intake and exhaust ventilation for every 300 square feet of attic space. Ventilation is typically provided at:

  • Soffits
  • Roof ridges
  • Knee walls and/or vertical walls
