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 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.
