Louvers and Vents
Louvers and Vents are used in roof systems to control the temperature and moisture level of air flowing through the attic area.
There are many methods of accomplishing this goal, but they all center around a main principle: cool, dry air gets pulled in and warm, moist air gets forced out. When working properly, the vents can:
- Extract moisture from sheathing, insulation, structural members and roof cavities
- Keep the roof cold to prevent the melting/refreezing cycles that create ice dams
- Reduce the sheathing temperature, which can enhance the lifespan of roofing materials
- Lessen the strain on air conditioning systems during warmer months
Types of Roof Vents
Soffit vents are generally the point of entry for cool, dry air to enter and circulate through the roofing system. This cycle helps regulate humidity and temperature in a beneficial way.
Gable Vents and Louvers
A gable vent is the most common exit point for air in a traditional attic venting system. Gable vents and louvers are our specialty at Antebellum Roofworks Co Inc. We can custom manufacture and install any type of vent you need to give functionality and architectural interest to your roof system.
Types of dormer vents we make and install include:
- Special shapes, like squares, pentagons or hearts
- Louver vents that form a triangle under the gable
- Special louver assemblies that create an interesting visual effect
- Custom vents to suit almost anything your imagination can come up with
We can fashion these vents out of raw materials either in our shop or even sometimes out in the field. Your one-of-a-kind gable vent is sure to add a unique flair to your building, as well as plenty of curb appeal.
Second to gable vents, ridge vents are the most common exit point for air in a typical vented roof system. These vents can be subtly blended into your roof line to conceal their appearance. They can also be made to prevent blockage from debris or snow.
Antebellum Roofworks Co Inc has experience installing ridge vents in all manners of roofing systems, including shingle, metal, tile, slate and wood shakes. We can easily integrate your ridge vent to be completely unnoticeable from the ground or front elevation views.
Turbines, Forced Air Vents, Dormer Vent, Static Vents, Etc.
These options all protrude from the roof in visible ways. You can order stock items that can be quickly installed or a custom piece to better suit your roofing ventilation needs.
Antebellum Roofworks Co Inc can also custom-fabricate a unique vent to compliment the look and structure of your building. For example, we can create a fixed vent in copper or a dormer vent in a colorful finish that stylistically enhances the appearance of your metal roof.
