so i have a 1926 colonial (in northern new jersey) with a simple gable roof.
the roof itself is new. it has a continuous ridge vent, but no soffit vents.
the exposed rafters are seen from outside the home, but the clapboard (aluminium siding) extends up and there is no soffit, and no venting.
i am now looking to insulate this attic as i am looking to finish it for use as an office.
so, what do you think i should do to insulate. with no soffit vents, the ridge does little.
i’d prefer NOT to get a spray foam , as it’s quite expensive vs. fiberglass batts.
but if spray closed cell foam is the only correct way to do it, i’ll need to reconsider.
thanks for any help.
