RAVC releases Top 5 Attic Ventilation FAQs.

On the surface attic ventilation may not appear to be a “top of mind” concern for contractors working on the roof and inside the attic. After all, there’s insulation, underlayment, shingles and flashing to tackle, too. However, based on the volume of questions the member companies of the Roof Assembly Ventilation Coalition (RAVC) receive about attic ventilation, it is clear contractors are thinking about it. Here are the five most commonly asked and answered questions the RAVC receives.

  • Why is it important to ventilate the attic – what’s its purpose?
  • How much ventilation does an attic need?
  • What’s the ideal way to ventilate an attic?
  • The more exhaust vents on the roof the better it is for the attic, right?
  • How are multiple ridge heights handled?

To get the answers to these questions and more, check out AIBD’s blog DesignLINES.
