I have a cape cod without a lot of soffit to begin with. Last year I had condensation in my attic after a new roof was installed with a ridge vent. There are still existing vents at the peaks along the sides of the dormers.
Today I decided to dig in and see what a lot of people have been telling me. I got brave and ripped out a piece of the soffit and verified there was plywood underneath it. Also cleaned out the insulation that was stuck above it from in the attic. Now I just don't know what to do. To follow this process it would seem I have to ruin all the so called ventillated soffit. Does anyone have any ideas?
You can remove and reinstall the aluminum soffit without destroying it.
First open up the end of the channels and slide the piece out. The soffit should be stapled although it doesn’t look like it in the picture. If so remove the staples and slide the soffit out, drill your holes then reinstall the soffit.
