How much attic space needs to be between the roof and an arched ceiling if you live in Texas and have hot summers?
You only need 8-10 inches. That is enough for insulation. Answer You 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. Possible help added: A ridge vent for a pitched roof is a great way to help keep the heat down in an attic.
Answer 1 . They certainly can, and do.
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 will 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.
All the neo-mansard styles( 1960-1970) I have seen had a second story inside the roof . Victorian era (second empire) houses may be different; I have never been inside o…ne. However, I believe that the definition of mansard is a raised roof with flat sides to accommodate an additional story. -Sarah All the neo-mansard styles( 1960-1970) I have seen had a second story inside the roof .

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 roo…fer or contractor or have your attic ventilation system inspected.
The small shelter system was designed to provide an attic-like ventilation space what allows warm air to vent out of the small shelter system?
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 so…ffet 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.
Ventilators are provided in the rooms just below the roofs because wen the air inside the room gets hot this warm air rises up... and flow through these ventilators and thus c…ool air remains at bottom......so this is how ventilators make us relive in hot sumers ,i hope i made u satisfy by my answer :) Answered by : Priydarshni Kohli ;)
With either gable vents, soffit vents or ridge vents. The more the better
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.
I have many old treasures stored in the attic which I will show the children when they're older.
Ummm. . . Well It Depends What/Trying Your Trying To Keep In Your Crawl Space. Hopefully, No Humans Or Living Things.
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 take…s 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.
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 efficie…ncy in warmer climates.
No, I would assume they are the most common. Unless you are talking about a flat roof.
