Roof vents

Discussion in 'Builders' Talk' started by Bodgitandlegit, Jul 2, 2010.

  1. Been researching roof vents that are fitted in the tiles of a pitched roof. Reference is made to high level and low level. What is considered high, and what is considered low? The roof has already got ridge vents, but the wood work supporting the roof virtually blocks these vents. There was quite a lot of water droplets condensed onto the underside of the roof felt during last winter, so it's clear there is insufficient ventilation. Could this be achieved with soffit vents, or will I have to fit the roof vents anyway. Cheers Les
  2. one little thing you might want to check is that the insulation isn't pushed too far. the loft insulation is only supposed to be pushed up so its just touching the rafters in the corners and not all the way so it goes against the felt preventing any air flow.
