Joliet 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.

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.

Call us today or fill out our short online form to schedule an at-home estimate to assess your 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.

    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.

    Great company to work with, from the big boss, Tom, to the workers. Tom was never pushy and wasn't the typical sales guy that people want to stay away from. He explained everything and was quick to get back to us with any questions … More we had. Everything happened just like he said it would. The workers were very professional, very respectful of being in our home and did a great job. They even cleaned up after themselves and rehung our blinds, which was a big deal to me. We were extremely pleased with the service, product and the entire experience. We love our new windows and patio door! Thanks Tom and crew!!
