Re: roofing question..

It also has vaulted ceilings throughout the whole house, so maybe that's why it only has soffit vents all the way around? I doubt it though because it still has a decent sized attic. There is a good distance between the ceiling and the roof still..

Re: roofing question..

Greg Greg, why wouldnt they have these from the factory? As i said, as far as attic venting, all it has, from the factory, is vented soffits. The other vents are the bathroom fan vents..[/quote] On paper soffet vents work, you have (again on paper) air flow from one side to the other. Now if you ta...

Re: roofing question..

Who ever is inspecting at the MFG apparently was not looking. The shingle MFG, HUD, IBC, IRC all mandate ventilation. Some of these plants are inspected by third party firms.

Re: roofing question..

Re: roofing question..

Now, the only vents in my roof besides the perforated soffit vents are the bathroom fan vents. So if I do a metal roof, why do I have to add the ridge vent as long as I still have the soffit vents and that's all it came with from the factory...?
