Ventilation

Empire Roofing & More understands that ventilation is a critical part of your structure.

Ventilation is an important component of your home, business, or church. Ventilation affects the following aspects of your environment and your roofing system.

  • Moisture — Proper air flow helps maintain a healthy balance of moisture in the air in your property, and plays the important rule of removing excess moisture from the unconditioned portions of your property.
  • Lifespan — Prevents premature degradation of construction materials (i.e. Wood, roofing materials, fascia, soffit, siding, paint, etc.)
  • Energy Efficiency — Proper air flow controls heat gain and loss (warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer).

Improving ventilation to unconditioned spaces is always suggested. It is important to address ventilation issues when installing a new roof or replacing soffits.

Proper ventilation is a key factor to extending the life expectancy of your roof. An improperly ventilated roof will not reach its life expectancy. When installing a new roof, we follow the industry standard recommendation for ventilation rule of 1 to 300. This means 1 sq. ft. of Net Free Area (NFA) for every 300 sq. ft. of attic space. So, for each square foot or 144 square inches, of NFA we split between intake and exhaust. We then achieve the desired amount of intake and exhaust using different roofing system components. Since attics and other non-conditioned spaces differ in design and function from one another, each ventilation systems must be designed and installed to optimize performance for the specific application.

Empire Roofing & More knows how to identify the differences, and ventilation needs of individual structures. Our contractors will determine the needs of your home, and customize a system to more adequately equip your structures ventilation.

“Roman was very professional, punctual for all appointments, very much available (phone, email, text) & was in and out as promised. Initially quoted 2 days work, but they were done in one, which was helpful. When an inspector made one comment (I’m selling the house), Roman addressed it immediately. Great guy to work with.”
—Sam R.

“Professional, knowledgeable and friendly, Roman was professional with a friendly easy manner that made him easy to talk to. I wasn’t sure of the color I wanted and he was very helpful to me in making my decision. I would recommend him to others.”
—Gale M.

“Empire replaced my roof last summer. I was very pleased with their promptness, professionalism and their work. My existing skylight developed some leaking last week. Roman came out immediately after I called and fixed the area. He also blew all the leaves off my roof—which was quite a job, being a large ranch house in the woods!
Thank you, Roman!!”
