Vented roofs leak, blow away and burn? Lstiburek
I was watching a video where Lstiburek says “Vented roofs leak, blow away and burn. Unvented roofs do none of those things. Duh”
I understand why Texas basements, aka attics, need to be unvented and conditioned due to the absence of a basement for mechanical systems. But I’m wondering why, or if he said this about all attics in general?
I live in the north and am considering pouring a basement, mainly for a tornado shelter and second for mechanical systems, but should I consider a unvented roof for performance in Iowa 5A?
