Roof Ventilation

in today's energy conscious society, one of the major problems faced by builders is the build up of high levels of condensation in the roof space.

Widespread use of central heating, double glazing and insulation can cause a temperature differential between living space and cold air outside.

Warm air, carrying high levels of water vapour, is drawn by a process of convection to cold areas of the building, including the roof void. If there is insufficient ventilation the water vapour condenses, leading to rotting timbers, the rusting of metal fixtures, felt damage and mould growth.

To solve this costly problem, Roofingdirect install a range of quality roof ventilation products which are suitable for new build and refurbishments situations.

Roof tile or slate ventilation systems are designed to provide roof space ventilation or an outlet for ventilation ducting through large formats concrete roof tile coverings or slate roofs profiles.

The vent tile & slate system is designed to replace a single tile or slate, and maintain an unbroken appearance to the roofline, whether used at high or low level.
