Custom Louver Vents & Dormers
At Garcia Roofing, we understand that a roof isn't complete without proper attic ventilation. Louver vents and dormers can make all the difference during hot and humid days and nights. Without this type of ventilation, the roof and surrounding structures can suffer from expensive damage and other problems.
Why is ventilation a necessity?
Without enough air flow, an attic and any existing gaps in the roof or attached walls start to experience a buildup of moisture around windows, within porous building materials and underneath insulation. The roof and attic also overheat. These humid conditions eventually cause extreme structural expansion and contraction and related deterioration. The process can make any metals that are capable of rusting break down. The roof can warp and new cracks and other types of gaps can form anywhere.
Unwanted open spaces to the outdoors can also decrease ambient temperature control within an attic, which increases energy bills. They also allow various types of pests inside, such as insects, bats, rodents and snakes, that often nest within a structure. Worse yet, wet, deteriorating wood and other natural materials become the perfect breeding ground for a wide range of fungi species that create spores that are harmful to humans and pets. Some of the pests and fungi that overtake a structure can cause severe sickness and death.
Louver vents and dormers provide the best solution to these problems. They're designed specifically to keep out the elements while making sure that air flow remains steady. Our team of skilled and knowledgeable professionals at Garcia Roofing is proud to offer several styles of louver vents and dormers that include round, half-round, square and horseshoe window forms. We select a ventilation option based on a range of factors, including the size, layout, design and ventilation needs of a home or business. Our sheet metal specialists then customize these products to meet our customers' specifications.
