Slate Vents for Roof Ventilation
Slate vents are essential for maintaining the condition of your roof throughout its exposure to the water vapour generated in your house. Whether it’s from the kitchen or the bathroom, residual moisture rises to the top of the home - the roof. Without proper ventilation it’ll settle at the top and start causing serious problems.
Slate vents are the most common form of ventilation: they’re cost-effective, easy to install, and come in a range of styles and designs to match both the practical needs of your rooftop and the aesthetics. There are options for both traditional slate and man made slate rooftops, featuring downward ventilation pipes and a sleek design that blends seamlessly with your roof.
At JJ Roofing Supplies, we supply slate vents from a number of top manufacturers, including Klober, BMI Redland, and more. We take pride in our customer service, offer excellent delivery to locations across the UK, and market-leading prices for roofing supplies.
Specific Slate Vents
We stock a range of slate vents from top manufacturers, like Klober, that have been designed to fit man made slate or natural slate rooftops. Most slate vents are made from durable polypropylene material that has been wind-tunnel tested, preventing any damage during storms or heavy rainfall.
Likewise, the slate vents are designed to help with ventilation without exposing your rooftop to water ingress, birds or insects. The modern flat design utilizes downpipe technology (rather than a gaping hole) to provide ventilation in your attic or rooftop.
Due to the simple design of slate vents - and that they’re meant to fit seamlessly into your existing slate rooftop - you can easily install a vent within half an hour with the correct instructions. You may need a slate roofing handtool to cut and shape the slate, and you can find both the tools you need and the instructions on how to install the slate vents right here at JJ Roofing Supplies.
Main Benefits of Slate Vents
In short, slate vents are specifically designed ventilation for your slate rooftop, whether that be for bathroom ventilation, loft ventilation, or to prevent the build up of damaging moisture and condensation in your home.
- Affordable, due to the fact they’re made mostly from polypropylene and not slate (though there are natural slate vents if you’re looking for an all-natural aesthetic) you can find them for extremely reasonable prices.
- Easy to install. It can take just 30 minutes to have a slate vent installed. Due to the fact there are no complicated pipes and wires, all you need to do is choose the right spot and remove some slate from your roof.
- Well-insulated and protected against British weather. All slate vent products - especially from leading brands like Klober - have been wind tunnel tested. They’re also great at keeping out water, insects and birds.
