Air Intake Vents

Air intake vents are not commonly required on the roof because the attic air gets ventilated by air entering through soffit vents. We have noticed that in some roofs, especially low-slope ones, these soffit vents are blocked by insulation or are insufficient for proper attic ventilation.

It is helpful in such cases to install air intake vents towards the roof edges to allow outside air to enter the attic and help it ventilate.  These vents can help escape the trapped air from some attic regions and reduce the chances of moisture and mold development. 

We provide free inspections to help you decide if you need air intake vents or not. 

How many air intake vents do I need?

It is advised to get the roof and attic inspected to better understand the issue before deciding on how many vents would be sufficient. A typical roof with such issues would need about 3 to 4 vents for all or some sides of the roof. 

Some ventilation issues may be resolved without installing air intake vents. 

Are there different types of air intake vents?

Air intake vents are rarely used, so they have minimal availability in the market. 

We use air intake vents manufactured by MAX, which must be pre-ordered in most cases. 

Are there any alternatives to air intake vents?

There can be some alternatives that may help get the same results in some cases. For instance, baffles can be installed to increase the airflow from soffits, but there has to be enough attic space for the installer to be able to do so. 

We can also try to clear insulation from the soffits to let more air into the attic.

I had contacted Real blue roofing Service to do insulation in the attic and install two washroom vents on my roof. The Real blue team who came were very Professional, and first thing explained to me what they were doing. So they first removed all the old insulation, installed two vents and plus two extra vents on the roof. They worked very hard with no water break or lunch break and on the way they took pictures of before and after. Also after the job completed they vacuumed the full area including the carpet on the stairs and left our very clean. Mr. Dill Singh all hats off for a superb job your team did at our place. This is the second time I have used this company, many years back they installed a new roof, and when I saw them in this new business and expansion I right away call them no doubt I had some more estimates from different Attic companies. If any one needs a roof replaced or attic take care they are the people you need to contact. I strongly recommend this company Real Blue Roofing Services for any work, their pricing is very reasonable and take the liberty to explain the full estimate and what needs to be done. Once again Mr. Dill Singh and your team who you deployed I don't know their names I personally thank you for their hard work (specially the guy who was in the attic doing the job). they worked very diligently, with no water breaks or lunch break in between, you very rarely find such honest, hard working and diligent workers. Please thank your crew on our behalf. This is why I gave them 5 stars, I could talk a lot about this company, but right now I say eyes closed if you need something done please don't hesitate to contact Real Blue Roofing Services. I would had pictures but I have not received them.

I thank you for your amazing service. It is almost a miracle today to receive such a good and reliable service. Quick response to when I called, thorough investigation of the problems, the repair is done perfectly and fast. And for me also very important the honest, respectful communication, a feeling of trust that is hard to find. I will never take my business elsewhere. Thank you Deepak and your team!!!
