Common Roofing Ventilation Options for the Wichita, KS Area

To protect your home, it is important to have a properly vented attic space which is also required per local building code by every manufacturer of roofing products. This can be achieved through a combination of intake and exhaust vents. These include soffit and eave vents for intake ventilation with a variety of roof vent styles such as ridge vents, turtle vents, and turbine vents available for exhaust ventilation. These work in conjunction with each other to provide a balanced, constant flow of cool, dry air throughout the attic.
