question: I own a 1940's country home, originally it had cedar shake roofing. I had to re-roof 3 yrs ago, and the roofer agreed to apply the smartvent since i have no soffits. The roofer applied the smartvent incorrectly, with the plywood above the smartvent, and also the shingles fall below the vent edge, overlapping the gutters. Unfortunately, the tar paper covers the venting edge, and even though i have ample ridge venting, i still feel like i have no intake ventilation, compounded by having a succession of old rafter slats covering any openings from the smartvent into the attic.
i am currently of the mind to have the roofer replace the bottom foot of shingles, and hardware, and replace the smartvent correctly, this may involve cutting the 2nd rafter slat out, which isn't needed structurally. how do you think this will work?
thanks, Hard at Work
