roof vent

  1. Roofing/Siding
    Hi all, I live in an older townhouse in Toronto. After noticing strange temperatures and humidity levels in the unfinished attic, I discovered that the soffits were blocked by plywood, allowing no air inflow. I hired some workers to cut holes through the soffits and then though the plywood...
  2. HVAC
    I'm going to put a new roof on my house, with a ridge vent. My range hood currently vents straight to one of the roof vents... and those are all going away and being replaced with a ridge vent. So I need to determine where to install a new range hood roof vent. Ideally, the vent would come...
