  1. Hi,

    One of the best article I have seen on roofing. I am American and building a small house on the family plot near Iligan, Misamis Oriental.

    Would a Turbine vent for added ventilation along with the Mahogany Ventilaiton be worthwhile or would it be redundant?

    Thanks, Dr. Ellsworth,, retired Chiropractor..


    • Dr. Ellsworth, If we were doing our house anew, there would be no mahogany ventilators. We would have the simple hip roof used in so many Filipino houses. Our roof design added cost, complexity and maintenance cost. I have seen the turbines. Our site is very windy so I think soffit vents are best, perhaps the prefabricated plastic or metal ventilated soffits that roofers can install.
