Thanks for advice on the small cottage we just re-roofed!
One more question - We ended up putting Ridgevent on the peak of the cottage and patched up the can vents. Regarding the soffit ventilation - We have vents in every third Soffit, but we believe the Soffit vent is not working properly as either the insulation in covering the open space or the cottage was not built correctly. So…we planned on just putting in Gable vents. While purchasing the gable vents at a supply house - I was informed by the employees and fellow roofers, that you do not want to install both gable and ridge vents. You need the air coming in low (Soffit) and exiting high (ridge). By the way, I do not have access to the attic. The cottage has no entry to the attic!
So…wanting to do this right - what are my options?
Is is possible to correct the venting problem from the outside of the house and going in thru the soffits? what if an opening has to be cut???
