I have a 1948 cap cod and the roof is in pretty decent shape. I have a two inch open fascia vent that runs along the fascia board above the gutters and below the shingles. This is on both sides of the house. There is evidence that some critters have gotten into the attic via this open vent. Once I clear them out, what is the best way cover this open vent. It doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look like a continuous drip edge vent is the way to go as I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know if there is enough material to cover the open vent. I am considering using a continuous soffit vent even though those are supposed to go underneath, or a stainless steel wire mesh (Kwickmesh). If I use the Kwickmesh what is the best way to put that on? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d think IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d need to fasten it under the shingles and the along the fascia board. Would staples be adequate for this?
Any suggesting much appreciated.
