Attic ventilation needed for a 100-year-old slate roof in a coldish climate?
First time owners looking at 100 year old house in NE US (climate zone 7).
Beautiful slate roof, very steep (making the attic much smaller than 1300 sq foot footprint of house).
Attic is totally not vented.
Inspector said to look into venting it to help roof last longer.
My question is, it’s lasted this long (I’m sure it’s had repairs along the way) is it safer to leave as is or look into venting?
