NOT ALL SOFFIT IS CREATED EQUAL
Not all soffit is created equally. In fact, the Department of Energy has reported that over half the homes in the U.S. have visible evidence of inadequate ventilation – resulting from the use of soffit profiles that don’t offer enough NFA (Net Free Area) to work with a home’s ridge vent system. Bolivar Insulation has teamed up with Quality Edge to install some of the most attractive and best performing vented soffit profiles in the industry.
The Hidden Costs of Poor Ventilation
*In as little as 15 years, a poorly ventilated home can cost you as much as $7,980 over 15 years:
• $312 (estimated annual cost):
Assuming your roof lasts only 15 years vs. 30 years
• $220 (estimated annual cost): For extra energy costs
*Even a 4% increase in your attic’s moisture level can reduce the effectiveness of the R-Value of your insulation by 50%. This could cost you an additional $6,210 over 15 years.
*With proper ventilation, cool, dry air is drawn in at the soffit and replaces the hot, moist air that’s created in your attic.
