Vent

Moore Vents  ::  2011

Moore vents attach under roof deck, helping keep the roof cooler in summer and a thermal break in winter so icing up is reduced.  They also keep moving air away from batt insulation.  Batt / loose insulation acts as an air filter, and when it captures enough dirt it no longer has insulating value.  Insulation is trapped air, and dirty insulation is a thermal conductor.

These vents are overlapped from peak towards lower wall, so any roof leaks are channeled down & outside.  Staples hold each vent in place before insulation is packed in the cavity.  Spray foam insulation will seal around the vents at outside walls.
