We have a cape cod with no overhangs, so there is no option for rafter ventilation that goes up the rafter cavities and up to the ridge that I am aware of with a metal (not asphalt) roof, which we plan on getting.
Then the plan is to finish the attic, that is to say to make it into livable space where the temperature is normalized like 60-85F.
What I am trying to figure out is what should we be doing in terms of roof ventilation as all of the roofing contractors want to know if I want a ridge vent, if I want to keep my attic fan, etc.
Right now there isan attic fan, so that is attic ventilation, but as-is there is basically NO roof ventilation as far as I can tell, especially considering there is insulation pushed up against the rafter boards.
So moving forward, what would be the smart/correct thing to do?
Even if we pulled the insulation away from the rafter boards , there is no air flow, since there's no roof overhang.
