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?

A.Editor Don Jackson responds: If you're reroofing anyway, you might try Air Vent's vented drip-edge (800/247-8368, 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.
