Why hire a roof ventilation expert through Airtasker?

Top Roof Ventilation related questions

Whirlybird installation can lower temperatures by 20-30°C in roof spaces at the height of summer. Every home is different though, and the cooling you'll experience depends on the building's design, location and other factors.

The number of whirlybirds you need depends on the size of your house and the size of vent you choose. A general guide is to install one standard 300mm vent per 100 square metres of your home. Larger and more powerful whirlybird vents over 700mm are available for commercial and industrial buildings.

Yes. While wind helps a whirlybird to function effectively, the vent will still force hot air out of your roof space if it's warmer than the air outside. Solar vents don't require wind to operate.

A solar roof vent installation works similarly to a standard whirlybird vent, but can offer more efficient cooling. A solar panel on the outside of the vent powers the fan that draws in cool air from outside and extracts warm air. Solar whirlybird installation should be carried out on north-facing roofs when possible to catch the most sunlight.

Most companies can install whirlybirds on metal and tiled roofs, but you should check with your supplier if your roof is suitable. The type of roof you have may affect the installation cost.

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.
