Re: [hreg] another roofing project with questions
- Breezemaster offers a 10-watt gabled unit, very high quality. One will accommodate around 1,200 square-foot attic, so two should do you well.
You can also use a BM 1600, but we have some gabled units that are very cost effective.

My attic has 2 gable vents and soffit vents all around. The old roof (asphalt shingles) and plywood decking need to be replaced. I have blown-in insulation between the attic floor and the ceiling below.
-- install a radiant barrier when replacing the decking
-- cover the exterior with a white, metal, standing ridge roof
-- install a solar powered attic fan
The goal is to create a much cooler attic and ultimately reduce my AC bills.

I listened to Stephanie Edwards-Musa and Michael Strong's webinar on Radiant Barriers. Thanks for sharing.
-->Cell phone interferance from radiant barriers is be very problematic! Have you heard of any solutions to that problem yet?
