Venting a small hip roof with the hip peak touching the house
I have a small section of house with a small hip roof of approximately 128 sq.ft. in area. Based on my calculations I was planning to install 5 round 4" soffit vents (http://www.homedepot.ca/product/4-inch-white-circular-louver-resin/935118) and a single square roof vent (http://www.homedepot.ca/product/60-nfa-brown-roof-louver-high-impact-res...). From other reading I gathered that the outtake should not exceed intake, so should I install an additional soffit vent to keep the ratio approx. 50 / 50 ?
