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.

    Tom and his team did outstanding work to turn a dull, ordinary exterior into a more vibrant, up to date style for our home. The before and after images speak for themselves. I would use Capa again for our home projects, and expect to … More be doing so again this summer.

    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!

    I was long overdue on needing six windows and a storm door installed. Capa was the third of three estimates, and while they fell in the middle, I was FAR, FAR more comfortable dealing with Capa than any other company. Tom impressed me as … More being honest and did not try to upsell me to an expensive window brand. Another company insisted on complete window replacement; Tom said that wasn't necessary. (This was important to me because new window treatments would therefore have to be done almost immediately, since my inside frames were wood and the new ones would be vinyl, and that was a hassle I didn't want to deal with right away.) Tom said "we'll take care of you" and he was as good as his word. Their work crew was efficient and hard-working once the windows arrived. Their three men installed everything in one day. Capa is an honest company and I would gladly do business with Tom again.

    This company excels in everything and true to their word and work ethics. From the planning stage all the way to project completion, I have nothing else to say but good things. Tom and his team are on top of everything that I have nothing … More else to do but sit back and wait for the finish product. The men arrives on time, respectful to us and to our property, and took their time in ensuring that what we have envisioned is what we will have. I can see their excellent attention to detail even when no one is looking, that is integrity at its finest. I am so glad that I chose CAPA Construction Inc in our renovation project and since this company pretty much do everything else, I would not hesitate to call them again for our next project and will definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

    Capa replaced all of our windows and did a great job! Professional and quick, and windows look wonderful. Tom is so easy to work with - the no pressure quote was very appreciated.

    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 just had Capa Construction complete another project for us and again we are more than satisfied with the outcome. Tom and his crew completed a major remodel of our home in January. The work that was done and the attention that Tom gave … More gave throughout the project was first rate. We asked Tom to come back and replace three windows that we did not do the first time around. They installed two picture windows in the Living room a window in the Dining room and a office window. All three windows looked like they had been there since we moved in after they left. The crew made sure not to damage any of the newly painted walls and left everything as clean as it was before they started. We would highly recommend Capa for all of your improvement needs. Thanks again Tom and Crew for another great experience.
