I had my roof replaced and the roofers followed the GAF spec and installed four roof louvers on the back portion of our roof. The city inspector failed the inspection for inadequate centralization and wants addition roof louvers installed on the front of the house. I am not really thrilled with this based on how it would look on the roof line facing the road. I have no soffits as my house is a colonial from 1946 and my city will not approve architectural changes to allow soffits. Any other mechanisms available to avoid to vents on the front? Just want to confirm what my roofing company says in case they are leaving a more expensive fix out since they are responsible for making the correction at no cost based on the contract we signed.
A ridge vent would look a whole better and vent the whole roof not just small areas.
With no soffits any roof vents not going to work any way.
It would be like taking a straw and sucking with your finger over the end of it.

Joe is right a ridge-vent will look better and is more efficient. As for not having soffits - you may want to install some kind of intake. There are several products that will allow air in without having soffits. Below is a link of a product I believe can hep you.
