Roof Ventilation Question
Posted: Sat Aug 29, 2015 8:28 pm
A little over a year ago I had a roof over built directly onto my mobile home. The contractor did not account for all boots and I eventually realized that I do not have ventilation going from my bathroom fan to outside. Normally I would be content with letting it vent between the two roofs. However, I have fiberglass insulation between the two roofs and it doesn't have a path. Is this fixable and how feasible is it? Can the metal panel be removed to allow access to the fan? If so, would it be able to be taken off and replaced without causing any additional problems? Or could I measure approximately where the hole needs to be and use some sort of saw to cut a hole there? My heart sank when I realized that it has been like that for over a year. This means that the moisture was going straight into the fiberglass insulation. Maybe I'm worried about nothing but I hope that this can be fixed and that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Also the inside fan is very close to the center of the vaulted ceiling so I'm wondering if perhaps the ridge cap can be removed and I can get to it that way. I don't know what to do so I hope you guys have some advice.
