Joliet, IL Ridge Vents & Roof Ventilation

One of the easiest aspects of your roof to overlook is ventilation, and it is certainly understandable. We tend to expect that it simply keeps our home dry and moisture-free. Yet a well-ventilated roof can make your life easier by significantly extending the life of your home. 

When you properly ventilate your Joliet roof, you lower heating and cooling costs, make the interior of your home more comfortable, and extend the life of your shingled roof. Call us today or fill out our short online form to schedule an at-home estimate to assess your ventilation needs!

Roof Ventilation and Ridge Vent Company for Greater Joliet

All seasons present unique hazards to your Joliet roof, and the summertime is no exception. If your roof is not properly ventilated, hot air will stay trapped inside and tax your air conditioning and electrical system. During the colder months, combined with effective attic insulation, your ventilated roof will help to keep snow from melting on the surface of your roof and subsequently freeze. 

At Capa Construction, we both install and repair ridge vents and other types of vents for your Joliet roof. We have been the go-to choice for Chicagoland roofing for over 29, and your friends and neighbors trust us for their roof ventilation needs.

There are many types of ridge vents that we install, including:

  • Ridge vents are often installed along the roof peak and tend to be the most important vents in any passive roof ventilation system.  When hot air accumulates inside the attic, it escapes outside through ridge vents.  As hot air begins to escape through these ridge vents, outside air is drawn in through soffit vents.
  • Soffit vents work with ridge and gable-end vents to promote healthy roof ventilation.  They are usually installed along the eaves of the roof, and tend to be found in the grilles that run along each soffit. Soffit vents play an integral role in home ventilation.
  • Gable-end vents are, as their name would imply, installed near the peak of a gable end.  These are most often screened vents that allow hot air to leave the attic or for fresh air to enter.
  • PAVs, or Powered attic ventilators, or attic fans, are designed to be roof-mounted, but they can also be mounted on gable-ends or attic floors.  Though the advantages of a PAV are numerous, they tend to be higher maintenance and consume electricity.  They also can suck cool air from other floors and rooms. Thus, most home energy experts consider a passive (or non-electrical) roof ventilation to be optimal for your Joliet home.

    From beginning to (almost) end, it's been nothing short of an awesome experience. Tom understood our needs, wants, and most importantly, budget. His crew recently installed our windows and French doors with care and professionalism. … More The craftsmanship is outstanding! They made sure they were as clean as they can be. Every step of the way, making sure we were satisfied with their work. Can't wait for our upcoming projects with Capa Construction. If it's anything like our first job, I know it's going to be amazing!

    Contacted Capa based on good reviews seen on Google. They called me promptly to set up an appointment for an estimate. Tom came out and took plenty of time to listen to our wants and concerns about windows in our home: we had a poor quality … More improperly installed window in our master bedroom, and original windows on the second floor that were so-so builder grade, and a sliding patio door that we wanted to upgrade for a variety of reasons. Our home faces west and is on a slight hill exposing it to any weather that comes our way. This has led to it being very hot or cold on the second floor when temperatures are extreme and we constantly are exposed to wind. Tom talked to us about several options to alleviate the second floor issues. He also helped us select a new sliding patio door with blinds inside the glass. Once everything was measured and we selected colors, he made a second visit with a sample of the window, and took plenty of time to explain the features, making sure we were good with the windows before finalizing the order. Took a bit of time for the manufacturer to build the windows, but this past Monday, the Capa crew came out and put everything in. They were neat, hardworking, and professional...they treated our home with respect inside and out, and did a high quality install. We could not be happier with the quality of work and the product installed. With the extreme heat right now, we put the windows to the test, and it has made a big difference in temperature on our second floor. The patio door looks amazing, and also provides better thermal control on our first floor.
    Our entire experience with Capa from first contact to last work cleanup was excellent. We have some other projects that we are going to contact Capa about performing for us. 10/10, will use again.

    "We have had 2 projects completed by Capa Construction. The first was done in the summer of 2018, we had a new garage floor put in along with a huge new concrete driveway. We also replaced the garage doors that work with a phone app … More too. We continued with a new front porch and sidewalk and patio in the backyard. The sidewalk and patio are a beautiful gray stamped concrete . Lastly we have had new windows put in, love that they let the sun in, but do not fade the flooring or heat up the rooms. We are very pleased with Tom and the installers. Tom checked in multiple times every week until the job was completed. In 2020 we added a front porch portico, the workmanship is just beautiful and we are very pleased with the results. Tom took the time with both projects and kept us informed every step of the way!"

    We're so happy we chose to have Capa Construction replace our roof. They did our neighbor's roof and we were impressed with their work and finished product. Tom was great to work with; friendly, professional and punctual. He was … More able to move fast through the process to finish the job before the weather turned. They thoroughly cleaned up after the job and our roof looks great. We will work with Capa again on our future house projects.

    I worked with Capa Construction to replace all of my doors and windows, as well as a kitchen remodel. I'm extremely happy with their work, and could not speak more highly of this crew. Their quality of work is top-notch, pricing … More is fair, and their overall friendliness made what would be an otherwise stressful situation quite enjoyable and easy. I recently sold my home with 7 offers on day one - 6 above list price. I have to think it was the beautiful improvements that the guys at Capa helped me bring to fruition. Thank you Tom, Greg, and the entire crew!
