House is brand new with a tile roof. The roof sheathing was insulated with foam (which I have never seen). The soffits were completely insulated, and there was no other visible entrance point for ventilation. There was no ventilation at all to the attic that I could see. The ceilings were uninsulated.
Is this acceptable? I thought that attic ventilation was required at a rate of: 1 to 150 sq. ft.
Another question: won’t the attic be hot as Hades if it’s enclosed? How will the lack of ceiling insulation affect the living space?
And, how will the insulation on the sheathing affect leak detection???
This was my first tile roof structure. Is this the latest in building techniques and something unique to tile roofs?
