Advice Please on Blocked Eaves With Insulation

Postby Heisenburg » Fri May 22, 2020 10:17 am

Hi everyone,

I currently live in a property and found that the eaves has been blocked with insulation. Its a vaulted roof so the insulation goes really far down and I cannot just pull it out. Is it OK to get roof vent tiles at the top and leave this eaves blocked? We had a roofer around today who said this was the case but wanted to check if anyone else has any experience with this.

Thanks :)

Hi heisenburg
Unless you have an issue with damp in your roof space I would leave well alone.
