A new roof investment requires real ventilation

​Having a continuous soffit or eave vent along with a matching ridge vent is great, but what exactly does that do for your roof after insulation or even standard attic clutter reappears? SmartBaffles are durable, full width baffles that keep the entire rafter bay clear to maintain the balance of airflow from bottom to top.

"If you choose to vent the roof deck, then be serious about it and really vent it."

~ Joseph Lstiburek

​Lstiburek hit the nail on the head with that quote. Most consumers purchase everything of quality from the underlayment to the 50 year shingle and then go frugal when it comes to the underbelly of the roof. Invest in the right baffles that will last as long as your roof.

Below are some images of the SmartBaffle installation when a new roof deck is being installed. These baffles can be installed after the fact, as long as the insulation is cleared out first.

After SmartBaffle has been installed add your decking to continue your project.
