Roof ventilation – solutions for a modern-day problem

Roof ventilation has always been critical in letting a house or building ’breathe’ and ensure that roof spaces don’t gather moisture and condensation with unpleasant and possibly costly consequences. However, in modern houses with more efficient central heating systems and highly effective insulation methods, temperature differences created between living and roof spaces can present significant roof and eaves ventilation challenges. Drawn to colder roof spaces by convection, condensed water vapour can lead to rotting timbers, rusted metal fixtures and felt damage from mould growth.

Roof ventilation from Manthorpe can help save both pennies and the environment. In an increasingly energy-conscious world, clients are much more aware of how to save money as well as the planet, so specifications can become even more demanding, putting extra pressure on budgets. Fortunately, Manthorpe’s cost-effective solutions cater for all types of roof ventilation requirements, including new build and refurbishment.

Our roof ventilation range is entirely British manufactured, as are the majority of our products; proudly supporting British manufacturing and minimising risk in the supply chain and in your project schedules.
