I have a head-scratcher for everyone and I sincerely hope there is an expert or two who can help me solve my problem. I have a home with vaulted T&G ceilings upstairs, and a central ridge vent running the length of the roof. My problem is this—every time the wind blows greater than 10 MPH, we get noise (similar to the sound you hear when you face the wind). Living near the coast on a mountain top means we get regular fall/winter winds anywhere from 5-60 MPH. I’m tired of losing sleep. I even contacted the manufacturer of the vent who said they’ve never had this problem before, but sent me some ridge vent baffle (a metal L channel) that should have done the trick. But a fall storm yesterday (wind averaged about 15-20 with gusts to 42) proved that this was ineffectual.
Any roofer/builders out there who build in windy areas–HELP PLEASE!
