Venting a Shed Roof – To Peak or not to Peak?
Casey here. Long time Reader, first time poster.
So I’m detailing a vented shed roof in climate zone 4c and am looking for some advice on ventilating the upper end of the roof.
There are plenty of articles on here with regards to roof venting, I’ve read most of them, but none (that I can find anyhow) that address shed roofs (that don’t terminate into a wall) peak/wall ventilation output.
I’ve attached a quick sketch to help illustrate my question, but essentially, which path is the most ideal ventilation path for a vented shed roof? And why so?
1) topside – furthest from wall
2) bottomside – furthest from wall
3) bottomside – closest to wall
Thank you in advance of response and I look forward to the exchange.
