How can you make a attic roof, high ceiling like this? Doesn't it moore vents?
There are un-vented attic assembly s that can be used in vaulted ceiling like this.
And don't let anyone BS you about it being a "Hot-Roof".
There is no appreciable difference in roof life from a vented to a well designed and constructed non-vented roof types.
I would use moore vents. Maybe Roof ventilation is over exaggerated now days and it wasn't really an issue 50+ years ago and roofs didnt collapse. But if you have the roof joists open why would you not want to spend an extra $40 and 30 mins installing moore moore vents to get a cooler attic and probably a longer roof life. On a project like this. Moore vents would be my last concern during planning. If you have a more specific question let us know. What type of roof do you have now? What is your plans?
Do you think i can do that here? I would close off the vent as you see it and continue the insulation and duravents.
There is metal on the roof and i looks like they cut of something from the top of the old roof so there is some venting there.
I'm going to replace the rotten struss.
prescribed........ look forward to updates. Want to vault in my old home too.
