  2. 2. Air Barrier Paper Sheet like material applied to the exterior sheathing. It permits water vapor to drain and limits water and air flow into the house.
  3. 3. Attic Ventilation 1 Soffit Vent The vent allows air to flow into the attic or under the roof sheathing. This air helps prevent moisture accumulation by circulation. It also helps moderate the temperature in the attic, which in turns helps with energy efficiency in the house.
  4. 4. Attic Ventilation 2 Ridge Vent This vent allows for the passage of air to exit that initially came from the soffit or gable vents.
  5. 5. Attic Ventilation 3 Gable Vent These are positioned on both sides of the gables. They allow for passage of air in the attic area.
