New Jersey summers are known for their heat waves that can severely damage your roof if left unchecked. Luckily, the installation of attic vents can help prevent the damages from occurring. Properly installed attic ventilation is essential and can save you money.
What is attic ventilation?
In general, attic ventilation is an avenue for hot, humid air to escape from your attic. There are two types of attic vents: one is the ridge vent that is found at the top ridge of the roof as shown in the picture above. The other is an attic fan that is placed on the roof itself. Both forms of attic ventilation will help you extend the life of your roof.
