I don’t want any stink in my attic area or run any risk of stinking up the house, that’s why I was inquiring if I could vent right up to the ridge vent that runs along the peak of the house where the fumes would leave the attic. I thought maybe someone in the trade could advise me on this. I realize that it is common practice to vent thru the roof, but I wondered if it was actually necessary. As far as checking with the local code, there is none. This is strictly my project and I’m on my own and want to roof my house as soon as possible, but am considering venting only to the ridge vent, if and only if the fumes will leave the attic at that point. All comments are appreciated.
