- Q.I'm reroofing and residing
a small home with no soffits. The customer wants to add
attic ventilation. I have no problem adding the ridge
vents, but there is no soffit overhang to put the eaves
vents in. In fact, to have enough space for the vinyl
J-channel, I'm having to add an extra 2x4 fascia. How
can I get air flow into the attic?

responds: If you're reroofing anyway, you
might try Air Vent's vented drip-edge
(800/247-8368, www.airvent.com). This product
extends farther than standard drip-edge and has
vent intakes in the underside of its horizontal
projection. If you drop the fascia an inch or so
below the top of the rafter plumb cuts, you may be
able to sneak some air into the attic.
