In the process of buying a 1902 house in the Hudson Valley. It’s just over 1000 sq ft with finished rooms in the attic. The bottom of the rafters are the finished ceiling and I’m not sure if there’s insulation between the rafters. If there is insulation I have a feeling there are no baffles so it wouldn’t be an easy fix by adding vents in the soffit.
There’s a newly installed asphalt roof with a ridge vent but the soffits are not vented.
Is this a major concern?
