Why is proper ventilation so important?
Our Graceland Portable Building is constructed with a patented vent system that is head and shoulders above the completion. It is so unique that it is patented. When considering a storage shed, why should the vent system be so important? Long term it can make a big difference in what you have stored in your shed.
First, their system is vented on each side of the overhang and also the full length of the roof ridge cap. This gives you good airflow, with all the hot and stale allowed to exit through the ridge cap. Hot air rises and this patented system allows the air to escape totally in the hot summer sun. The great airflow also helps to prevent mold and mildew and keeps your stored items cooler and dryer.
The temperature in a standard storage shed it usually has a small square vent at the bottom and top of the walls can reach very high temperatures in the hot weather we experience in the Raleigh NC area. This can do lots of damage to many of your stored items. The Graceland company does not charge extra for this patented vent system and it is included in all their models with metal roofs. The shingle roof models are also vented in much the same way with the side venting and ridge cap venting, it just does not extend along the full roof ridge cap. It still gives you much better venting than the alternatives. This is just one of the things that the Graceland company does to insure it’s customers that they are getting the best the portable build industry has to offer. They take this approach in every thing they do.
