Having an effective residential roof ventilation system is essential to your home being energy efficient. And there are also other benefits to good ventilation, including being helpful limiting ice dams. Because roof vent installation involves cutting into the roof, it is a good idea to address ventilation when installing a new one. Ranch Roofing employs a team of experts who can make sure the airflow in your home is up to grade when it is time for the new roof.


Two common questions asked Ranch Roofing representatives are: Why don’t you need to go on my roof? and Why do you need to go in my attic? Roof ventilation is underrated and greatly misunderstood. Many customers believe by having a ridge vent at the top of a roof there is adequate roof ventilation, when in fact, it may be worse than nothing at all.
