Installing step flashing

Make sure your roof is properly vented. Ridge venting and installing soffit bafolds. Keep in mind if you are trying to figure this out go outside and have a look at your roof you should see a razed ridge if it is ridge venting or you wWillard boxes. These boxes allow air to exit the roof if you see these count how many there are. For every 300 sq feet you should see 1 you can also go into the attic space and see light coming threw. Soffit venting is very important it allows air to travel under roof substrate and helps moisture escape in the winter and heat in the summer. Have a look if you see moisture where the eave meets the top of the wall to see if you have insulation blocking the roof truss space. If it is blocked pull back your insulation and install ba-folds.
This is something we do and we can help you understand more about your roof system.
