|One of the most overlooked components of design and installation of roofing systems, both in new construction and retrofit applications, is ventilation. A properly engineered ventilation system using a proper ridge vent in conjunction with an under soffit intake will provide proper fresh air movement through the roofing system removing hot, stale air. Summer heat is released naturally, extending both the life and performance of the roof. During winter proper ventilation can assist in the control of condensation and other moisture problems such as rust and insulation deterioration.
Ridge ventilators manufactured by Metallic Products are in accordance with the highest design requirements and specifications. 35 years plus of experience in furnishing stationary, gravity-flow, continuous ridge ventilators has proven their efficient performance and lasting quality.
