Roof vents


Not sure what you're asking. Other than avoiding placing one right over a rafter, I'm not sure there are any rules. Space them evenly for cosmetics.

Roof vents


Are you asking how many for the balanced venting system? Figure what you need in total vents, divide by 1/2 intake at soffits, 1/2 exhaust at ridge, compute each static vent, as per manufacturer, to find number required. Distribute them evenly.
