wow, ok… you guys really get yourself kind of wound up over this stuff. This forum can get a little nasty, I probably should just quit while Iamb ahead to stay out of the insult firing range, but I do need to get some helpful advise. I’m just looking for a roof solution, that’s all. I probably should worn this guy that you might be waiting outside his house with a baseball bat. Anyway, I just thought his of his idea was interesting, because he offers a solution for people who have no soffit space. and after the first replier gtp1003 basically told me I had no remedy for my problem, and that basically I was totally screwed, it’s nice to see some other options.
yes, it is ugly, and it does use up most of the roof. But if it was for gtp1003 he feels I need to tare down the whole roof, so, who cares anyway. also, regarding the snow/ice proplems, I guess it’s not an issue because we live in L.A., and the guy lives in Phoenix, so maybe he mailnly deal with snow free homes. So it’s not an issue. Either way, I’m not totally convinced about his anti ridge-vent philosopy, but as far as using the dormer vent’s at the base of the roof, as intake, in place of soffits, it sounds good. Along with the ridge vent’s up above. It’s that, or replacing the whole roof which came whith the house and is only a few years old.
Gentlemem, Your poking and jabbing I must say is entertaining, but with the ecception of a couple of people I’m not sure if I got any help.
It’s easy to say, what you are doing wrong. But how about, what to do right for a change.
