Observation: The attic vents or louvers leak.

Performance Standard: Attic vents and louvers shall not leak. However, infiltration of wind-driven rain and snow are not considered leaks and are beyond the control of the remodeler.

Corrective Measure: The remodeler will caulk and flash attic vents or louvers to eliminate leaks.

Discussion: Inlet and outlet vents should be provided for proper ventilation of the attic area. Inlet vents should be provided in the soffit area and outlet vents near the ridges. These vents will produce natural circulation regardless of wind direction.
