Why hire a roof ventilation expert through Airtasker?

When your roof has no ventilation, or the ventilation needs repairs, you can hire an expert on Airtasker. Warm or frigid weather can lead to excess moisture forming in your attic, causing wood rot or mould growth. Wood rot causes severe structural damage to your roof, ceiling or attic and leads to expensive repairs while mould can cause allergies that can be potentially life-threatening.

Avoid these problems by making a post on our platform. Mention all the essential details like your location, the type of roof ventilation you have or want to be installed, your budget and when you want the work done. You’ll get free quotes within minutes (or even seconds!) from skilled experts near you.

Browse reviews and ratings on Taskers to hire the most suitable one - once you’ve agreed on the rate, they do the job you contract them for then you release payment afterwards. Get your roof ventilation installed, fixed or maintained and hire an expert with that pink button now!

Top Roof Ventilation related questions

No, you don’t need to provide any tools or equipment. You can expect your hired roof ventilation expert to arrive at your home equipped with the necessary tools and equipment. Apart from having the right tools, they have the requisite skills and years of experience in installing roof ventilation. What you should provide are the materials and the roof ventilation system for installation.

The time it takes to complete this service depends on the complexity of the task. Inspecting your roof’s ventilation can take at least an hour and a half, then the needed repairs and maintenance may take another couple hours or more. Installing a new roof ventilation system can take a whole week or two, depending on the type of roof ventilation. 

If you offer roof ventilation services, yes, you can hire a Tasker to assist you in this. The trick is to make a post with all the crucial details to attract the right experts - those with the right skills and experience in providing this service. You can hire Taskers for this and other related services like maintaining your home, making sure insulation is sufficient for winter, clearing your attic, and removing mould from your ceiling


Roof ventilation can prevent health issues and structural problems. In the summer, trapped warm air creates moisture that causes wood rot in roof or ceiling structures, which are costly to repair. In winter, warm air trapped in the attic or ceiling melts snow on your roof, making your roof buckle and break. Moisture can enter the structure, causing wood rot and potentially life-threatening mould growth. Roof ventilation allows warm air to escape and avoids creating moisture.

The rule of thumb is to install one vent for every 28 square metres of floor area you have in your attic if it has a vapour barrier. Without a vapour barrier, you should have one vent for every 14 square metres of floor area. The vent should at least measure slightly less than a square metre to give ample ventilation.

What do roof ventilation services include?

Roof ventilation services include all the necessary tasks to ensure your home has a functioning ventilation system on its roof. Your hired roof ventilation expert can check the system and ensure that the system is free from damage and gets the needed repairs and maintenance. This service typically includes inspection, upkeep, installation, and repairs for your chosen roof ventilation system. 

Roof ventilation installation

Your hired roof ventilation expert can install your preferred roof ventilation system if your roof doesn’t have one. Most roof ventilation experts can make the adjustments on your roof, ceiling or attic if necessary, but this can cost extra. In some cases, you may need to hire a carpenter to make modifications or adjustments to your roof and its underlying structure.  

Your hired tradie can install a cold roof, lead flat roof, roof turbine vent, cold flat roof and most other common types of ventilation. They can also install roof ventilation for different rooms of your home, like bathroom roof vents.  

Roof ventilation inspection

For homes with existing roof ventilation systems, your roof ventilation specialist can go up on your roof and check the ventilation. They can also check any connected ducts or pipes if these are accessible. They can inspect these for damage, debris, dirt or mould accumulation and perform the necessary repairs, cleaning and maintenance tasks with the appropriate tools.  

They can also check for pests that may have taken residence in your roof ventilation. Should they find any troublesome bugs or birds, some experts may offer to remove pests and get rid of their nests for you.   

Roof ventilation cleaning & maintenance

Once they’re done with the inspection, your tradesperson uses the appropriate tools for cleaning the roof ventilation of any accumulated dirt, dust, debris or even mould. If they find more dangerous pests, they may recommend the right pest control service to deal with the large rodents or insects.  

Roof ventilation repairs

After a thorough inspection, your tradesperson can do the needed repairs or replace broken sections or components of the roof ventilation system. This process can include roof air vent repair, furnace roof vent replacement, and other common repair or replacement tasks.
