Protect Your Home Year-Round with Proper Attic Fan and Ventilation
There is more that goes into the roof of your home than just the shingles. Not only are there measures you can take on the outside to ensure the protection and stability of your roof, but there are also indoor measures that can help in the same way. Proper venting and insulation throughout the home are often an overlooked part of the roof, but they are essential in helping to lengthen your roof’s lifespan.

Kitchens & Bathroom Vents
Proper ventilation reduces attic moisture and reduces heat buildup. What does this mean for the homeowner? A happier roof that you get to enjoy longer.
We had an amazing experience with Clearview Roofing and Construction. After we bought the home, and found out the former owner lied about the quality of the roof, we needed a new roof... and fast! We called Clearview and they were able to be there the next week. The price was fair and reasonable. No hidden fees. Eric led the crew -- and was very responsive, helpful, and easy to work with. The whole roof was replaced in one day! We are so glad that we found them!
Eric was amazing and amiable! Also very professional, answered all our questions, respectfully and politely and not at all intimidating. We called the Company to help with an urgent roof inspection and they responded immediately and accommodated our availability. We will be definitely using their services for roof installation!
I use Clearview Roofing for all my roofing needs and recently needed a gutter replaced. I called them on Monday, they completed the job on Wednesday and did a great job as usual. Kevin and the team are always very responsive and can be relied on to do a great job at a fair price.
CLEARVIEW Roofing repaired the white aluminum fascia molding that blew off with the recent storm we had. I called and spoke to Chris. After talking to him on the telephone I texted him photos of the aluminum that needed to be replaced. In no time he responded with an estimate that was fair and reasonable. A crew arrived the next day to do the work. Great Job!! Well done! I highly recommend Clearview Roofing!!
Frequently Asked Questions about vents
Yes! Well, only if you want to protect your home from everyday moisture creators. Kitchen ranges and bathroom fans require ventilation, as both suck air in and through a duct, and that duct needs to go to a damper-style vent out the roof or siding. Many homes flood the attic without ever venting the moisture and air properly. If you are looking for an attic fan install, your bathroom fan vented or your kitchen range vented, book an appointment with Clearview Roofing’s certified technician for a free estimate.
Greatly! Warranties are in place to protect your roofing investment, and while one warranty covers the materials themselves, the other covers the company’s workmanship. If your attic isn’t properly ventilated, the warranty you have on your materials could be voided. Not only is this a costly expense as far as your roof is concerned, it’s also a costly expense for your everyday heating and cooling expenses.
Schedule an experienced roofing expert to take a detailed and thorough assessment of your home, roof and attic. There are a lot of factors that go into the current and overall health and longevity of your roof and home, and it’s important to trust your livelihood to a company that knows how to properly maintain both.
Installing an attic fan can help to keep your attic cool, reduce humidity and prevent damage to your roof. Here are the basic steps for installing an attic fan:
Choose the location: Identify the best location for the attic fan. It should be located at the highest point in the attic and close to the center of the roof.
Mark the location: Once you have identified the location, mark the spot where the fan will be installed using a pencil or marker.
Cut the opening: Use a reciprocating saw to cut a hole in the roof at the marked location. The size of the hole should be slightly larger than the size of the fan.
Install the fan: Carefully place the fan in the opening and secure it using screws provided with the fan. Make sure the fan is flush with the roof and the edges are sealed to prevent water from leaking through.
Install the flashing: Install the flashing around the base of the fan to ensure it is properly sealed and protected against water intrusion. The flashing should be secured to the roof and to the sides of the fan.
Install the wiring: Connect the wiring for the fan according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It is recommended to hire a licensed electrician for this step.
Test the fan: Once the wiring is connected, turn on the power and test the fan to ensure it is working properly.
It is important to follow all safety guidelines when installing an attic fan and to wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and safety glasses. If you are not comfortable installing the fan yourself, it is recommended to hire a professional roofing contractor like Clearview Roofing who is here to help!
