We at S&K Construction believe in a ridge vent system while using a Shingle vent 2. We also offer a package called Edge Vent that is used for poor soffit ventilation or if you want to max the air flow to create a great ventilation.
Ridge vent 2
FUNCTIONAL DESIGN AND CLEAN LINES. FOR AN AIR OF DISTINCTION. ShingleVent II ridge vent installs on the peak of the roof allowing exhaust ventilation all along the roofline -- end-to-end. This product proves that outstanding beauty and performance can be combined. Design features include an external baffle and internal weather filter for optimum airflow and weather protection. Less than an inch in height, this molded, high-impact copolymer shingle-over ridge vent permits capping of the ridge with shingles like the rest of the roof.Available with a bag of nails and without nails. Designed with an external baffle and internal weather filter, ShingleVent II delivers superior attic ventilation and weather protection.
Here’s how it works: The external wind baffle directs airflow up and over the vent, creating an area of low pressure over the vent openings, pulling air out of the attic — even when the wind is not 100% perpendicular to the vent.
The external wind baffle also deflects rain and snow over the vent, protecting the roof and attic from weather infiltration.
An internal weather filter helps trap fine snow before it can household Edge vent
