How much attic space needs to be between the roof and an arched ceiling if you live in Texas and have hot summers?
\nYou only need 8-10 inches. That is enough for insulation. \n. \n Answer \n. \nYou only need enough to put in the insulation you want. I'm in Arizona and only have 1' between the ceiling and a flat roof. But it's full of insulation. Works for me.\nPossible help added: A ridge vent for a pitch…ed roof is a great way to help keep the heat down in an attic. (MORE)
If the bathroom air-heat-light vent is dripping water badly and the tube is running about 20 feet to the attic gable vent and out how can you fix the dripping without going through the roof?
Answer . Often bathroom vents will drip due to condensation in the vent pipe. As the warm, moist air from the bathroom is drawn by the fan into the pipe in the cold attic the water in the air condenses and drips back down through the vent. 20 feet is a long way for a bath fan to push the air s…o it has plenty of time to cool off. \nSolutions include insulating the vent pipe (fiberglass taped on with duct tape),or shortening the run of the pipe and having it run horizontally and exit out the side of the house.\nLetting the fan run for a few minutes before steaming up the bathroom may help by getting air flowing and the vent pipe warmed up a little bit.

This 100 year old house has window headers spaning 9 feet made from 2x4's in an A-frame truss design carrying the roof load will these headers be ok to carry the new finished attic floor load?
Headers This question requires much more information than you have given to be properly answered. The short answer isï¿½ Not Likely. The greatest span that I could find for 2 each 2X4 header using SP is 3ï¿½ 6ï¿½. The long answer is that there is a lot of information that goes into designi…ng a header. This is where a design professional really earns their money. Here is some of the information that will be needed to design a header for a home or any other building. These same considerations go into designing all headers whether for roofing or flooring support. What is the dead load? What is the live roof load? Are there any other acting forces? (wind, seismic, etc.) What grade and species of lumber? Is the lumber engineered or natural? All of these questions may not carry the same weight when applied in different areas of the country. For instance; I would not worry about hurricane force winds in the mountains of California as much as I would in the coastal islands of Florida. Then again, I would worry more about earthquakes and seismic loads. The IRC (International Residential Code) R602.7 guides you through tables and information that can be very helpful. You do have to know what the right questions are though to get the right answer. Talk to your local Building Official or a Design Professional and ask for help in determining the requirements in your area. Hope this helps Terry (MORE)
It depends on if the wall is a weight barring wall. A wall with no weight barring on it can have a layout of 24" centers. The Basic Layout Is 16" on most other walls. The More Weight Barring down on a wall The Closer The Studs Will Be..
Answer . First of all, why would you want a permanent roofing ladder?. You will need to visit a steel cutting or a fabricating shop. Get them to build you two 'C' shaped steel pieces with bends on the ends to connect to either the wood or metal ladder. On the other side attach a piece of wood (2…x4) or steel. The 'C' will have to be elongated enough to match your pitch. The 'C's' should fit over top of your roof vent without touching it, providing you are able to set it in place without damaging your vent. This isn't the only answer, I'm sure, but it is how I would do it. Terry (MORE)

Condensation forms in roof spaces and can be severe. Water droplets can drip ontoinsulation material or the ceiling of the room below. If there are timber roof trusses (beams) then severe condensation will cause rotting of timber which could lead to wet rot or even worse dry rot. Good ventilation wi…ll stop the build up of moisture.. Improper roof ventilation may dramatically lessen the life of a roof and void your shingle warranty. The shingle manufacturer has specific guidelines for the amount of ventilation you need based on attic square footage. Attic ventilation is very important as too little will literally cook your shingles; which, will cause them to be brittle and this will make susceptible to wind, hail and storm damage. Your utility bills may also suffer as the excess heat from your attic may radiate through your ceiling and cause your air conditioner to run excessively. (MORE)

Answer . Not sure about ridding it of the existing mold, but the conditions which caused it can usually be remedied with adequate attic ventilation. Call an experienced roofer or contractor or have your attic ventilation system inspected.
It's actually more complicated than it seems. Here is a video explaining precisely how much insulation you need:. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0. It takes into account all of the variables (size, location, etc.). forget being technical. In most parts of usa(moderate climate) use a min…imum of 8-10 inches. If you're in the far north or desert either one use a minimum of 12-16 inches. with the price of energy what it is and the comparatively low price of insulation you cant go wrong by using a lot. just stick your head up thru the access hole and measure what you have before installation, and after installation dont pay until you measure what you agreed was to be installed! a minimum of 12 inches even in a moderate clime is not to much. again more is better.

Not ventilation per say. but it needs an opening for the simple fact when it moves back and forth the same air transfers is coupled to the back too. without it it may resonate as some frequency by back pressure.
1. To avoid too strong air currents near the body. 2. To avoid accidents by hitting the fan blades.
The answer is no. If you already have proper ventilation within' your bathroom/restroom. There is no need for a window, unless you like a view before or after you shower and/or you would like window ventilation.
A common misperception among consumers is that tile roofs are only suitable for warmer climates. A recent study showed that, because of their thermal mass and the air space formed between the tiles and the roof deck, tiles can lower heat flow into an attic by up to 70 percent. Roof tiles can be made… to look like almost any conventional roof covering. roof tiles are widely used in the uk, considering we havea colder climate mnost of the year it is proof that tiles can be placed directly on to roofing frames (MORE)
In England its is 'generally' 400mm (centres) but it depends on the live loads (wind) and dead loads (tiles etc. on the truss). Consult your local building regulations department or a structural engineer, architect etc.

Do you need attic chutes for your sloped ceiling if the room is an add on with no attic space the ceiling just follows the roof pitch from eave to where the addition attaches to the house?
Yes all roofs should be vented. Venting can be accomplished by installation of baffels between the top of the insulation and bottom of the roofing. You will need to install soffet vents and a roof peak vent for proper venting. RE: this is a single story "lean to" style adddition onto the side of a… two story home. there is no peak or gables on the addition. the ceiling just attaches to the bottom of the 2x12 pitch up to where it attaches to the side of the house. do i still need to use baffels? the only place i could put vents is in the sofit.

In what instances would a condo assn not be responsible for attic mold because of lack of ventilation?
In every jurisdiction I am aware of, a condo association is made responsible for proper care and maintenance of all "common elements". So the first question is whether the attics are common elements (or limited common elements). If they are common elements the association is usually responsible, and… if limited common elements you have to look at the condominium declaration because it may assign primary obligation, but will usually say the association if it's more than one owner that's affected or could be affected. If the builder is still on the hook, then the builder is responsible to the association. if the lack of ventilation was caused by the unit owner (blocking up a vent, say) the unit owner would be responsible to the association for damaging the common elements. In any event every condominium association should have its own legal counsel, and I suggest the association engages counsel for this purpose. (MORE)
It was first published in 1981 as the first children's book ever on the "New York Times bestseller list".
You need to consult your condominium survey and declaration. If the attic is a common element most likely this is an association issue. But if you are suffering consequential damages (i.e. the mold is now affecting your unit) you also may have a claim. That may depend on your state's laws regarding …whether associations have the right to sue on your behalf (if you let them). (MORE)
It depends on who owns the attic roof (ceiling?), and who has mold insurance. Read your governing documents to determine ownership, and then work with your board to determine who pays for mold removal.

Which direction does the air flow out of an attic ventilation fan Out of the attic or brings air into the attic?
The air moved by an attic ventilation fan blows out, sucking in fresh cooler air through the intake vents, commonly around the eaves or overhangs of the attic.

Ventilation provides a way for stale or contaminated air to leave a relatively enclosed space and for fresh, clean air to enter. If you are doing something that releases hazardous materials into the air, ventilation is one way to clean them out and prevent their hurting people. Even if hazardous m…aterials are not present, ventilation removes or dilutes odors associated with many people being in a closed space, making being there less annoying. (MORE)
I would say that it is probably a 2nd or 3rd grade level of reading.
When you poop it clogs up your toilet. Venting is required on all waste, soil ,chemical and acid waste systems.. Vent is not required on storm water in most cases
From a licensed Builder: Because the framing for the addition will overlay the existing truss-framed roof, you should have an engineer determine whether the trusses can support the weight of the new roof. If you get the engineer's OK for the project, your top priority is keeping your house weathe…r-tight during construction. First, set the new rafters or trusses on the addition walls up to the point of the eave of the main house, and snap chalklines on the shingles to mark the center of the new valley. You can strip the shingles out of the area that the new roof will cover, but to be safe, I often leave the old shingles in place and frame over them. You'll need to install a valley board or nailer over the old roof shingles to create a solid nailing surface for installing jack rafters (see drawing). After nailing down these two boards, dab roofing cement on the nails and along the outside edge. The roofing cement will resist possible leaks overnight. The easiest way to tie in the new shingles with the old is with a cut valley (see Four Ways to Shingle a Valley ). After the addition roof is framed and sheathed, snap a line on the existing roof shingles 2 in. up from the valley center, and cut through the shingles and underlayment. Starting two courses higher than where the new ridge meets the old roof, unseal the shingle tabs (a thin flat bar or a joint-taping knife works well), and pop the nails of the overlying course. Remove two shingles to each side of the new valleys until you reach the bottom. Save those old shingles, and number them for replacing later. Lift the underlayment out of the way, and then lay a 3-ft.-wide roll of waterproof shingle underlayment in the valley. Shingle the addition roof, letting the new shingles fold through the valley center and onto the old roof deck by at least 1 ft. Re-lay the shingles you removed from the existing roof. Bed the end of each shingle in a 2-in.-wide ribbon of roofing cement placed 4 in. up from the valley center. (MORE)

- Sleeping in a well-ventilated room and in an isolated room may affect one's respiration. Poor air circulation may give difficulty in breathing process while having proper air ventilation may give proper inhalation and expiration.
No, the sewer gases could come out and fill the attic and the rest of the house.

I know you people wanted some1 to answer this. Ok the theme for "The Light in the Attic" is Imagination. I am only 12 years old so don't get mad at me if I got it wrong. I hope I helped :).
It is difficult to give an answer in terms of number of inches or total volume / number of bags required. For one thing, it depends on how deep the insulation is, i.e. it takes twice as much to make it 6 inches deep as it does to make it 3 inches deep. The deeper / thicker the insulation, the more …it insulates. This is usually expressed as an "R-Value" where a higher value is more insulation. Note also that there are different kinds of blow-in insulation, e.g. fiberglass and cellulose. These have different properties and require different amounts to achieve the same thermal effect. One easy way to figure this out would be to go to the store where you plan to purchase the insulation and look at the bag. The bag will have a chart that shows the square footage or dimensions of the space to be insulated and the number of bags required to achieve various R-Values. If you know the company who manufactures the insulation, you can check their website. It is quite likely they have a similar chart of calculator as well. (MORE)
Attic spaces are a thing of the past in most new construction these days. They use all of the available space for living space. Attics were widely accepted as storage space in homes for a couple of hundred years.
Proper attic ventilation help reduce energy bills and extends the life of the roof. Temperature can be lost through the attic if not ventilated properly. Ventilation can also help keep homes safe and free from any structural damages.
Roof ventilation is necessary so that the air is in constant circulation keeping moisture levels low causing less future damage. Roof ventilation also increases energy efficiency in warmer climates.
No, I would assume they are the most common. Unless you are talking about a flat roof.
Ventilation is important on a plane to compensate for air pressure as the plane is in a high altitudes and also to maintain suitable temperature and oxygen levels,
