How To Insulate A Hot Porch Ceiling?
Howdy. I'm closing in a porch. I have a gable porch ceiling. It has 3.5" rafters. In the summer it gets very hot. Last year I put a rotating vent on the roof. It didn't seem to help.
To try to reduce roof radiated heat I'm thinking of installing a ridge vent and use r-13 fiberglass insulation between the rafters. However, it seems the insulation would stop the air flow from the eave vents to the ridge vent and the room would still get hot.
I feel others have come across this problem. I'll appreciate any suggestions, ideas, etc. Thanks, Gene
