Save Energy With Roof Vents

Why would you want a successfully vented roof? Because roof venting helps reduce energy costs. A properly insulated and ventilated roof will save you thousands of dollars, and who wouldn't want that? A roof vent allows hot, moist air to exit the attic and helps prevent roof damage and premature aging. UBS offers a wide selection of roof vents in sizes and styles to suit any roof design. Contact any of our sales staff so that we can find out your exact needs and find a roof venting solution that fits your budget.

Here are the different kinds of roof vents that you can look into for your home's ventilation:

Soffit Vent

A premanufactured or custom built air inlet source located at the downslope eave or in the soffit of a roof assembly.

Gable Vents

A triangular-shaped portion of the endwall of a building directly under the sloping roof and above the eave line. The shape of the gable and how it is detailed depends on the structural system being used (which is often related to climate and availability of materials) and aesthetic concerns. Thus the type of roof enclosing the volume dictates the shape of the gable.

Louvers (gable and roof)

Louvers allow effective ventilation of attic areas while adding a distinctive architectural touch to fine residences and commericial projects.

Ridge Vent (cor-a-vent, roll vent)

A ventilator located at the ridge that allows the escape of warm and/or moist air from the attic area or rafter cavity.
