Eave vent and smart vents for roofing

Eave vent or Smart Venting by Pro Roofing

 

There are lots of different types of venting in a roof.

The bottom line is that each attic cavity needs to have an intake and outtake of air.  Another way to say it might be that hot air and moisture needs to rise or be pushed out the highest point in each attic space.

Typically air enters into the soffits and out the ridge vent. That is the easiest way to make it happen.

Some homes don’t have overhangs or soffits so different techniques need to be used.  One common thing Pro Roofing does is install eave vents.  Some people also call them smart vents.

These vents allow air to enter the roof from under a row of shingles.  They can also be used on the top of structures as outtake vents almost like a ridge vent would work, but in applications where there is no ridge.
