A high-quality ventilation system is vital for any property. Complemented by breathable membranes, a high performing ventilation system enhances the quality of airflow within a building and allows moisture to escape, preventing condensation build up in a property, without compromising a roof’s waterproofing qualities.
It is important to obtain the correct airflow within both cold and warm roof constructions. The professional team at DMR Roofing Centre Ltd can advise you on your options and requirements to comply with Building Regulations and ensure you do not experience problems with condensation within your roof detail later. From Ventilation Ridge Systems to Over Fascia Vents and Vented Soffit Boards, we can supply a solution that best suits your particular roof.
A soffit board is a part of a roof that is located under the fascia board and overhangs the roof, allowing it to be the most visible board of the roof from street level. At DMR Roofing Centre Ltd we supply both standard and vented soffit boards. Vented soffit boards offer a solution for low-level air flow into a roof space which is discreet and cost-effective.
The fascia board is the long board situated under a roof’s lower edge and supports the gutter and bottom edge of the lowest row of roof tiles. We provide a range of effective discreet roof vents that are located at the top of the fascia board, underneath roofing felt to improve the circulation of air within the roof space that lies between the roofing felt and fascia board and within the whole property that you are refurbishing.
Maintaining the airflow to the roof space from the outside rather than the interior, the cost-effective Roll Out Rafter Trays we stock provide a much-needed air gap between the roof felt and Loft Insulation. This important air-gap gives any moisture that has accumulated an opportunity to escape, preventing condensation and damp within the building.
Like the Tile Vents that we stock, our Slate Vents are subtle yet robust and can seamlessly blend in with most rooflines and are suitable for natural, artificial and reclaimed slate roofs.
The Tile Vents we supply have aesthetic as well as practical advantages. Not only do they provide a high-performing ventilation system for any property’s roof space, but they reduce the amount of heat that escapes through the roof and can tastefully blend in with certain rooflines. This includes complementing the look of the guttering, facias boards and soffits.
The ridge is the section of a pitched roof, often located in the centre, that runs across the roof where the two sloping sides meet. Meanwhile, abutments are incidences where the gradient of a roof comes into contact with a vertical area, for example, a chimney or a wall. These areas on pitched and flat roofs can, and should, be ventilated.
We proudly offer an extensive range of Ridge and Abutment Roof Vents from leading brands in a variety of lengths and sizes to suit your needs.
