Roof Ventilation at JJ Roofing Supplies
Roof Ventilation is one of the most essential parts of any roof installation, maintenance or repair job. Without adequate ventilation heat builds up inside the building which can damage shingles and other roof materials from the inside. Many roofs in the UK don’t have the appropriate ventilation inside their attic - it can be harmful to the integrity of your roof and raise your energy bills.
While shingles are the most susceptible to warping and cracking due to excess interior heat, wood fixtures can also be damaged if your roof has poor ventilation. The potential costs of maintenance and repairs can be easily offset with affordable roof ventilation options, of which there are dozens of different styles and types.
At JJ Roofing Supplies we stock products from leading manufacturers like Klober and Ubblink and a variety of different vent styles to suit any rooftop. Whether its heat outlets, vents for flat roofing, or ventilation strips, you’ll find exactly what you need here to take care of your roof ventilation. We also offer leading market prices and fast 2-3 UK delivery so you can sort out any problems quickly.
Different Type of Roof Vent Options
At JJ Roofing we offer vent tiles, ideal for pitched roofs. These are easy to install and are all designed with wind-reduction technology, durable materials such as PVC and polycarbonate, and have protection against the weather, insects and birds.
Alternatively, for flat roofs we have a range of vents that are also easy to install. These fit snugly against your roof to allow for the release of heat from the inside or outlets which can be attached to a downpipe to collect pooling water on your rooftop.
Alongside our main fixtures we also supply everything you need to professionally install a vent, including adaptors, ventilation strips and the tools you’ll need. Our fast UK delivery and leading market prices are at the top of the industry.
The Importance of Proper Roof Ventilation
Roof ventilation allows the air to move through and out of your attic, rather than sitting there causing damage. Hot or moist air is taken out of your attic through a ridge cap or roof vent, or one of the many other options available, preventing long-lasting damage to the structure of your roof and works to make your home more comfortable.
One of the biggest issues to arise is when your roof becomes superheated - hot air is retained in the attic and then warmed from the sun outside. This is where the most damage occurs - wood warps, shingles crack, and moisture can cause damaging condensation build-up and damp patches.
Summer isn’t the only problem for roof ventilation - hot air generated from your kitchen or bathroom can even be detrimental to your roof during the cold winter months. Mold, mildew and damp can gather here and become more than a structural risk - it can also be very unhealthy for the building’s inhabitants.
