Roof vents


2 days ago we had a decent amount of snow with wind. I have lived in this house for 7 years and never experienced this before, but I had 2 water spots on the ceiling of my attached garage. I crawled up in the attic and noticed the snow blew in through the roof vents and therefore melted on the ceiling drywall. How can I prevent this in the future.

Roof vents


Since no one here can see your roof from here to even know what style vent your talking about hard to say how to fix it.
Need a picture.

Post up some pictures. Might be unavoidable to some extent if you have enough snow.
