Roof ventilation alternatives – what a contradiction, there is no such thing as an alternative to roof ventilation. Roof ventilation is a necessity to control the effects of condensation, Sick Building Syndrome, mould, mildew and termites in the roofspace that without effective roof ventilation will be allowed to thrive.
Whole house systems are not an alternative as they do nothing to address the problems that are inherent to the roofspace. There are many ventilators on the market today and most are just another version of what has been available for a century such as turbine vents, dormer vents, gable vents, electric fans, solar fans, eaves vents, ridge vents etc the list goes on, however none of these are roof ventilation alternatives as they are just a different take on what has been available for 100 years.
HOWEVER A REAL ALTERNATIVE IN ROOF VENTILATION FOR THE ROOFSPACE BOURNE OUT OF NECESSITY IN THE LAST DECADE, THAT REALLY WORKS AND IS A COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE IN ROOF VENTILATION ARE THE UNIVERSAL TILE VENTILATOR SYSTEMS.
The Universal Tile Ventilator System for tiled roofs and the Smoothline® Ventilator System for corrugated colorbond roofs.
