I’ll preface this by stating this may sound like a ridiculous question, but I have zero roofing experience. I have ridge vents with with about 3,000 sq.ft under the attic. I have soffit venting around most of the house (where possible) and I’m guessing about 38’ of ridge venting. I had a contractor come by to give a quote on the roof who wants to add static vents in addition the ridge vents, which I thought would short circuit the flow from the soffit vents to some degree.
If more ventilation is necessary, is it feasible to add hip ventilation with a new roof install to supplement the ridge venting or is that too much and/or does it negate the ridge vent?
