Garage Cathedral Ceiling Insulation
Hello everyone, yes I am a Newbie so thank you for your patience.
I am trying to insulate my cathedral ceilinged garage in order to make it more comfortable to work in here in Southern California. Here are the facts: 2 x 4 construction, 16" on center, no soffit or ridge vents. I had intended to apply Reflectix to the underside of the roof and then fill with basic fiberglass insulation and top off with drywall. However, because of the 2 x 4 construction, there is not enough room for air flow except that I have no soffit or ridge vents to even allow for air flow. So I thought I might buy a Whirlybird to suck out hot air, but these seem to only be for enclosed attics. I also am concerned that my idea may invite moisture to gather underneath the drywall and then subsequently force me to redo everything.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Be careful dude, check with the roofing folks (especially Ed the Roofer) before you do anything. Asphalt shingles need to have a ventilated roof and that can be tricky in your case.
