Next is to cut the slot for Shingle Vent II. Am going to cut the slot 3/4" as stated by them and called back to ask if that was a plumb cut and it was. I will stop it 12" from each end of the 32 foot Ridge on the home, 6" and 12" have been suggested.
MY soffit is cut back just rough with a jig saw for now and averages 3/4 of an inch to 1 1/2 inches cut back from the bottom back edge of the facia board. When we get through the winter i will get either the slotted or perforated metal and put that in with a new soffit. I want the intake at the front of the soffit so it draws air accross the back off the facia board to keep it dry.
What is the final ratio you need per running foot. They say the Shingle vent two provides 16" of air exhaust per linear foot so if that is the case if my soffit is cut on each side of the home back the 1" approx it is cut the same amount or a little bit more, is this okay till I put the continous vent in? 1" on each side of the home average would provice 24" of intake per linear foot
What do the continuous vents offer for air intake per linear foot? Guess it is different for different brands but the metal from this same company is what I am thinking. I looked to be about 2" wide.
