For those of you with an overhang to your roof line, you'll want to apply a flat soffit to the underside of the overhang.
The openings should be equally distributed between the soffit and ridge vents or between each gable face.
A transition between the scale of the landscape and that of the living quarters is provided by the white soffit of the inverted roof slope, which signals the gap leading to the bedrooms at the rear.
This variation is larger than needed for structural capacity and was made deliberately to accentuate the curvature of the soffit and enhance the graceful, arch-like lines of these spans.
To prevent sparks from entering your home through vents cover attic, soffit, and floor vents with wire mesh no larger than 1/8 of an inch, make sure eave and soffit vents are closer to the roof line than the wall.
The walls are fully glazed from a low sill to the underside of the soffit .
The exterior soffit costs more and uses more space than direct attachment or heavier gauge metal, but it affords better noise control.
A window that does not have the benefit of a soffit or porch roof above it may need flashing or a drip edge above it.
Attic vents can be installed along the entire ceiling cavity to help ensure proper airflow from the soffit to the attic, helping to make a home more comfortable and energy efficient.
Combined with a sufficient number of low vents in the eaves or soffits , it offers a workable alternative for ventilating just about any type of attic.
