 ShingleVent II install


You mentioned proper balance of venting. I am building my 2-story house which has 1342 sq ft on the second floor. Since I am putting ShingleVent II at the ridges and have drilled holes in the blocking at the eaves my calcs say I need 4.47 sq ft of venting (1/300). I have 5 sq ft at the ridges but only 3.27 at the eaves. Is this a problem since I have 8.27 sq. ft. total?
