During the design phase of the roof ventilation system it is critical to consider all aspects of the roof and building design and how homes will react with the design of the ventilation system.
You may have a background in architecture, you may work in the field of air conditioning, you may have experience with powered fans, your background may be in the field of filtration, you may be able to build a big fan and filter the hell out of anything, you may have trialled the use of carousels inside whirlybird vents, you may work for a roofing company in a corporate position and know everything about the roofing products, you may be in sales and know everything about whatever type of roofing products that you represent. Then you have your text book holders who may have a degree in science or a degree in ventilation however without a degree in the experience of roofing it is not going to hack it.
Or if you are not experienced in all types of roofing and reroofing to give you the knowledge of what happens in a roof over long periods of time and see what actually happens to roofs and all the materials inside the roof, how can you design and build a good roof ventilator system if you have no experience in roofing.
It makes good sense doesn’t it to have experienced what happens in a roof. If you are going to design a roof ventilator that is going to work properly and allow the ambient temperature to flow through the roofspace you should know firsthand how air currents and winds will move across a roof and what damage occurs in the roofspace. To have been on roofs in all conditions and experienced what happens and how it happens, this sure makes sense. If you know what goes on in a roof and on a roof and this experience is over four decades and the fifth decade has been in design of roof ventilators.
Wouldn’t it make sense that a person such as this would know a lot more than an architect or a filtration mechanic or a roofing company office jockey about designing roof ventilators for the proper ventilation of the roofspace in homes, you would think so, as a matter of fact we are sure of it.
We have seen all these other types of ventilators and ventilation systems in action and believe us, inside the roof there is not much action. Some of the fan systems can cost thousands of dollars and the only thing good about them is the spin the salesman gave to the customer. We still see the damage happening in roofs. On the other side of the coin is the initial investment you will never get it back then there is the running costs some run cheaper than others but you will have to replace filters, where there are motors and moving parts they will always need replacement.
Look on their websites, do any of them actually tell you how they work? No, there is usually a lot of sales jargon all the way through the website but they do not actually tell you how they work and how long they will last before they have to be replaced and is there any guarantee for how long they will last or any guarantee at all, not likely.
So what is the point of paying for a roof ventilation system that is not true value, that does not work as the salesman said it would and will forever be a maintenance problem - there is no point.
However the smart thing to do would be to invest your money into buying tile ventilators for your tiled roofs and Smoothline ventilators for corrugated colorbond roofs from Universal Tile Ventilators. Look on the website you will see testimonials from real people, Universal Tile Ventilators explains how their roof ventilation systems work and they give a guarantee that the ventilators will last as long as the roof or longer, for a one off cost and nothing ever to replace how can you beat that.
