Best kind of soffit vent?
I have a 1500 sf home with hip roof and 2 ft eaves and have to replace the soffit and fascia. When I purchased the 3/8" plywood soffit material and 1"x6" fascia material, I also bought 2" continuous aluminum vent, because I thought it would be easier to install. It doesn't have any screening, however, for insect exclusion, so I'm tempted to take it back and exchange it for something else.
I would be appreciative of any suggestions as to what would be best - keep the 2" continuous or exchange for something else, and, if so, for what?
