Ridge Ventilation Components

A number of factors in modern housing have led to increased risks of condensation within roof spaces. Average air temperatures within dwellings have increased, allowing the air to carry more water vapour. Increased insulation at ceiling level has led to colder roof voids. Roofing underlays have greatly reduced the amount of natural ventilation of the roof space.

Natural ventilation has also been reduced by the elimination of open-flued chimneys and the use of high performance draught-proof doors and windows. Condensation, taking place out of the sight of the occupier, can cause serious damage: timber decay, loss of insulation effectiveness, and spoilt decoration. For this reason, ventilation of roof space is required by all UK building regulations. Decra Roof Systems supply a range of products designed specifically to meet these requirements in all applications.
