new cool vent roof; close gable vents?


Windows on Wash, I am leaving those gable vents open! You've been a great help.

GBR in WA, great links! Zone 6-7 is wishful thinking for Minnesota. We're mostly Zone 4 here. I will definitely use the cooler temps this fall to further air seal the attic floor. Fortunately I have no plans to use the attic so if I can just prevent moisture problems up there, I'll be a happy camper. I have lots of reading to do.

I really appreciate all the advice! It's been an eye-opening education and I needed it.

GBR in WA - my apologies! I'm reading through the articles and I see the climate zones for roofing are not the same as for growing stuff. I'm still learning . . .
