Roof Venting

I have lived in my house in Phoenix, AZ for 19 years. (The house is 30 years old total and 1,249 square feet.) I have numerous circular holes (about 5" dia.) under the eaves and vents on both side ends of the attic for circulation/venting. I am having my roof replaced, and the roofer says I need to add ridge venting or turbines for proper heat dissipation to maintain the integrity of the roof. Is this correct? Or is the original venting adequate?

Roof Venting

Hey Ed, I think the &quot part is meant to be an inch mark as in 5" dia. I've seen this same thing elsewhere on the forums. Must be something to do with the OS/browser combinations some members are using.
