If you have read any of our above blogs you may be thinking: “How could they still be blogging about roof and attic ventilation”. The answer is simple.

We strive to provide our customers expertise information to help prevent Ice Damning or reduce the chances of an unexpected emergency repair. The first part of our mission statement is to “Empower the customer”. As Omaha Roofing Contractors, we do that through educating the customer. With that said, lets talk about how attic spaces get cooler fresh air inside the space.
What Kind of Attic & Roof Vents do I have?
If you talk to three different roofers you may get three different answers. As a Premier Omaha Roofing Company, ours is simple. You can install all the different kinds of roof vents you want, but in order to accomplish the results those vents are designed to achieve, you have to get cool fresh air into the attic in the first place! Your house accomplishes this most effectively through soffit (or overhang) vents – see picture above. These vents are typically at the lowest point of your attic space. Without them present or working properly, you aren’t getting the cooler air to enter the attic space ultimately replacing the warmer moister air that is flowing (exhausting) out the top of the roof.
Is my attic getting fresh air?
So why wouldn’t this be happening in your attic as you read this? Some of the main reasons are simple.
1) You may not currently have vents in your overhangs
2) You may have vents but they could be clogged with dirt or insulation from inside your attic or
3) You don’t have overhangs on your house and therefore do not have obvious opportunities to create intake vents. We can help you with any of the above reasons and many others.
