Precisely Calculated Attic Venting Solutions
For Greater Ottawa Area Homeowners
Don’t Let Your Roof Fail Early Just
Because It Couldn’t Breathe
The roof on your Ottawa area home needs to breathe if you want it to last its full lifespan. Otherwise, heat build-up and mould infestations can slowly degrade your roof’s ability to do its job.
Proper ventilation isn’t a guessing game. Each roof is unique and has specific needs. At Firon Roofing, we use software to calculate exactly how much ventilation your roof needs and where it should be located.
Every roof is different, so ventilation systems need to be custom-designed to fit each individual roof. Of course, we need to account for the size and shape of the roof structure, but that’s not where it ends.
The amount and type of insulation in the attic space need to be considered, as well as any fixtures or equipment that may change the conditions or airflow within the space.
Our software can take all this information and give the perfect solution for your and only your roof.
Once we have the answer to the amount of ventilation your roof needs, we can adapt it to various available products.
Ridge vents are the top-shelf solution to most ventilation needs. They are nearly invisible and offer exceptional airflow. They are also very expensive, mostly because we would need to cut a channel along your roof ridge when installing the venting.
Other options can achieve the same effect but are far more visible than a ridge vent.
Power vents are popular because the largest of them can cover the needs of up to 1200 sq ft of roofing surface. That means fewer holes in your roof, and fewer holes are always preferred over more holes. But not everyone likes the look of power vents.
There are smaller vents that work well, but you’ll need more of them to cover the same space. Then again, they are far more attractive than power vents due to their low profiles.
No matter your priorities or budget, we have a solution that will work for your roof.
While all our installers are well-trained experts in their field, only our most experienced roofers get to be on our roof repair teams. These crew members have seen every kind of mistake that can be made when installing vents because they are who we send to fix the messes left behind by other companies.
They’ve seen firsthand what can happen from skimping on materials, using substandard products, or just plain old sloppy workmanship. They are detail-obsessed and leave nothing to chance.
The only time they waiver from the manufacturer’s recommendations is when they exceed them. Often, they use higher-quality materials than recommended to ensure that their work will last until long after they’ve retired.
Once we have your roof ventilated properly, you should see immediate results. Your roof will be cooler in the summer and less prone to ice build-up in the winter. Mould colonies will find the balanced air in your attic inhospitable. And the upper floor of your home will be easier to cool without that big, wet blanket of air above it anymore.
And if you go with ridge vents, you’ll love the smooth new look of your roof.
Whatever system you choose, you’ll enjoy the results of the change you made for decades to come.
