I have a cape cod house built in 1952. I just bought the house a year ago. The roof was put on 2 years ago with a ridge vent.
In the summer the upstairs is so hot it is unusable. I am redoing upstairs and removed all the drywall and insulation.
I have been reading why it is so hot in there and the key seems to be ventilation. The problem is I have none. There is no soffet or over hang at all and no place for the air to come in.
What can I do??? :?:
I have included lots of large photos below please let them load and check them out
as u can see no overhang :?:
No vent or venting :?:
