Vented vs. non-vented roof
I live in zone 2A north of Lake pontchartrain. I am building a gable house with living area upstairs. The roof is galvalume with a metal ridgevent. The ceiling in the upstairs living area is cathedral then it goes flat. Should I go to the trouble of providing air space under the roof sheathing or close off the ridge vent with closed cell foam and foam the underside of the sheathing?
