came accross this inspecting the attic. Around the perimeter of the home were these drain tiles laid into the soffit areas for venting. Insulation covered the remaining areas. Is this a problem?
What did you see on the exterior? Or was this just placed next to one of the bird blocks?
Seen it a few times Used in Place of a baffle seems to work OK.
They have a major problem with mice in the attic. Boring holes in the insulation, poop and feathers above and below blown -in insulation. Thought they might be going to the soffit vents. Should of took a closer look. Just neede another opinion on this one. Thanks all.
The use of other products to allow venting is common, I have seen everything from cardboard cigarette cases , big o, foam take out trays, and cereal boxes. As long as they prevent insulation from blocking air space into attic all ok. I would be hesitant recommending any of them , including morevents , without protection from pest intrusion.
The problem I see is if the drain pipe is only near one of the small bird block holes and the other 2 holes are block by insulation, they have decreased the venting by 2/3. This will definitely affect the attic overall venting.
Easy fix. Take a leaf blower or shop vac on blow and hit each of the other bird block holes. It will blow the insulation away and allow for full venting.
