can someone tell me where i might find diagrams to show me how to vent my roof.I have a ridge vent,but my soffit vent has a headerboard so there is no air going to the attic space.I thought i should put a gable vent on the outside of the house on the right and left to allow air into the knee wall area which is about 3 feet high.but i dont know if this would be proper. thanks

a diagram may be hard to find. If you are looking for one I might suggest going by home depot they usually have some sort of workshop going on that actually aren't half bad. adding soffit vents isnt too hard of a job especially if all you have is wood soffits with wood fascia (no aluminum vinyl covering it) there are vents you can buy and install and like I said it is a do it yourself project. If you are unable to find a diagram just reply back to this forum and I can give you more details. I am here almost everyday
