Vented eaves strips are a vital part of any roofing system and are designed to help create and maintain ventilation in your roof space to prevent condensation which may otherwise cause significant damage to your structures. These strips keep ventilation paths open while preventing entry by bats, birds, and pests. We have a range of vented eaves strips from trusted brands for a wide range of roofing projects.
Should I vent my eaves? Yes, it is incredibly important that you install vented eaves strips into your roof voids, otherwise, condensation will settle on cold surfaces and will encourage rot and mould growth. Often, eaves ventilation is overlooked entirely when a breathable membrane is selected – this will cause further damage to your building.
How do you ventilate eaves? Eaves ventilation is a traditional method of roof ventilation – to make sure your building has the correct amount of ventilation, in general, a fascia vent and roll-out rafter tray should be used alongside a felt support tray. You should always check the installation guide for your vented eaves strips as this may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.
