What is the best roof vent for a house?

It’s impossible to offer specific advice without knowing the details of a particular roof. Many roofs have intake vents such as soffit vents or drip edge vents, while exhaust vents can be ridge vents, static vents, gable vents or turbine vents. The intake and exhaust vents work in tandem to prevent excessive heat buildup in summer, and excessive condensation and moisture in winter. The size of your attic and slope of your roof also come into play in determining the type and number of roof vents.

How many maximum roof vents do I need?

The number and placement of the roof vents are determined by the size of the attic, pitch of the roof, insulation, and other factors. When installing roof vents, the expertise of a roofing professional will pay off greatly for years to come.
