Like a fine wine from the Columbia Valley, your home needs to breathe.
For example, soffit vents around the perimeter of a home can help with attic ventilation issues. However, too much ventilation is not a good thing.
I recently inspected a home in Anacortes that was missing soffit vent screens around the perimeter of the building. When vents are not screened, birds and other animals may decide to put down stakes in your home.
Not exactly something to say “cheers” about.
If you have questions or comments about ventilation issues or home inspections in general, tweet me (@AIHomeInspect).
