Ridge and gable vents for unconditioned attic
Re-roof of well sealed unconditioned attic is calling for ridge vent install. Currently this attic has gable vents. Soffit vents are not an option, eaves trim detail is in the way. Roofer is saying we can’t have both ridge and gable vents, close the gable vents or we will fail inspection. Without soffit or gable vents, where is the intake source for the ridge vent?
