Haven't seen these before, roof vents


Recommended Posts

"Knotty" as in strange, uncommon, challenging, or otherwise something nonstandard.

We've figured out how to vent hips and valleys in complex rooflines, cavity wall in solid load bearing masonry, etc., etc.

I understand the reasoning behind those vents is this.

Where houses are squeezed onto narrow lots, fire is less likely to jump from house to house with the soffits closed off and the vents installed like that on the roof. So it is a good thing.

Hey, your skylights are cock-eyed. Must be a local preference. [:)]

Never heard that before. Interesting, kinda makes sense.

I thought it was a way to vent that sort of overhang; one doesn't have to be concerned with blocked soffit vents or any of that stuff.
