Understanding Attic Ventilation

Attic ventilation serves two primary purposes: removing attic heat during hot weather and removing attic moisture during cold weather.

Attic ventilation is achieved through a proper balance of intake vents (soffit vents) and exhaust vents (gable vents). A balanced configuration of soffit vents and gable vents, sometimes called gable vent covers, work together as a system to allow air to move freely through the attic. Outside air is drawn into the attic through the intake vents forcing the warm moist air out through the exhaust vents.

Why does this matter?

Because proper attic ventilation will help protect your home year round.

During the summer months heat build up in the attic can create undesirable conditions. Reducing the excess attic heat will mitigate these circumstances.

  • Attic heat radiates down into the living space. Removing the heat before it can transfer to the residence will make the house more comfortable and will reduce cooling costs.
  • Excessive attic heat can cause early deterioration of asphalt shingles. Some roofing manufacturers have specified minimum ventilation requirements to satisfy the warranties of the roofing materials.                                                                                             
During the winter months moisture buildup in the attic can be problematic. Water vapor rises from the living space into the attic and then condenses. Adequate ventilation is crucial for moisture removal.
  • Condensation in the attic can cause mold, mildew and structural damage.  
  • Inadequate ventilation can promote the formation of ice dams.

Attic Vent Calculation: The Uniform Building Code specifies the net free ventilation area required for attics. Some jurisdictions may have more stringent codes in place. Be sure to check with your local building officials to determine your requirements.

Once the required Net Free Area has been calculated use our NFA Chart (Net Free Area) to determine the correct quantity and size vents for your attic.  

Our products are manufactured from high quality aluminum sheet.
The raw material (aluminum sheet) is pre-finished with a 100% maintenance free baked enamel from the aluminum manufacturers.
Never needs repainting. We also offer a mill finish (unpainted).

An additional benefit to installing metal gable vents is that woodpeckers DO NOT LIKE THEM!

All of our products have insect screens on the back.
We offer over 25,000 different combinations of gable vents (shape, size, color and mounting flange options) that can be ordered directly from our website. Simply visit our products page, make your selections and your order will usually be manufactured and on it's way within 4 business days.

That's not all!

In addition to our stock vents we have solutions for special/unique or unusual applications. We are problem solvers and can get you what you need. 
  • Squirrel & Raccoon problems - We have a pest resistant design available.
  • Wind Driven Rain and Snow - We have a louver designed for use in areas prone to wind driven rain and snow. All of our products can be manufactured with our "Rain Louvers".  Our Rain Louvers have been used in hurricanes with great reviews.
  • Brick Extensions - We can install extensions on the back to bring the face out flush with brick/rock.
  • Special shapes/cut-outs/sizes - We can manufacture custom units to fit in any tight or odd shaped area or with cut-outs to accommodate chimneys, beams etc.  We can do any size vent, large or small. We can accommodate any retrofit application.
  • Custom Vent
  • Attic Access - Any rectangle, square or octagon vent can be hinged for accessing your attic. Our hinged vents come as a complete unit (much like a pre-hung door).  This makes installation no different than our standard vents. Very easy to install. Optional lock available.
  • Colors - We have hundreds of colors available and can usually match any color you need.
  • Gable Decorations - We manufacture them also!
