There is more to roofing than just nailing down shingles. A roofing system must also adequately ventilate the attic space. Proper roof ventilation prevents shingles from curling and reduces energy bills. Research shows that a simple balanced system of soffit vents and continuous ridge vents is the most efficient combination for maintaining adequate roof ventilation.
- Use ridge vents combined with external baffles
- Install ridge vents from end to end along the entire ridge
- Install soffit or eave vents so air flows between every rafter
- Install high-efficiency ridge vents with external baffles even when the entire roof doesn't need replacing
