Thank you for visiting the blog. It is dedicated to the soffit & ridge vent. Please visit the blog periodically for project information, answers to frequently asked questions, and project status updates. We appreciate your patience during the project.

All dates and proposed plans are “Weather Permitting” and subject to change with little notice. Updates will be sent out if there will be changes.



9/7/2023- The crew has finished building 5 which leaves only one building left. There will be no work completed tomorrow but they will return on Monday, September 11th to start building 6. They may be able to complete it in one day but may need to return on Tuesday to finish. 


8/361/2023- The crew finished the soffits on Building 2 and started on Building 3. This building has fewer units so they were able to complete the soffits today. Tomorrow, September 1st the crew will start on the front of building 4 (1560-1570 Pond Cir). If the rest of the buildings go well we should be able to wrap up the rest of the work by the end of next week. No work will take place on Labor Day. Enjoy your holiday weekend. 


8/30/2023- By the end of the day all six buildings will have the new ridge vents installed. The soffit rework has been completed at Building 1 and the front of Building 2. They will finish the back of Building 2 mid-day tomorrow and will move to the front of Building 3. With the ridge vents installed, there will be more crew members working on the soffit rework which will speed this process up. 


8/28/2023- The first day of work went well. The ridge vents will be installed on the first two buildings by the end of the day. The soffit rework was completed to the front and part of the back of building 1.

The crew will continue working on the back of Building 1 tomorrow and will begin working on the front of Building 2 on Wednesday, August 30th. Buildings 3 & 4 will have the ridge vent installed tomorrow Tuesday, August 29th. 



The materials and equipment have been staged around the community and on the roofs. On Monday, August 28th a crew will be on-site to begin working on this project. The work will consist of two separate tasks.


– A new high-profile ridge vent will be installed at the peak of all of the roofs. This will improve air exhaustion from the attic. This portion of the project will have minimal impact on your daily routine and will be completed much faster than the soffit work. All 6 buildings will be completed in 3-5 working days. They will start on buildings 1 & 2 on Monday the 28th, complete buildings 3 & 4 on Tuesday the 29th, and finish on buildings 5 & 6 on Wednesday the 30th. This is the plan but additional time may be required. For this portion of the work, nothing is needed from you. Please note you will hear noise on the roof while the work is completed.

– The second portion of the project is the soffit rework. This work is slower, more detailed, and will impact your daily routine slightly. Each building is expected to take 3-5 days to complete depending on the size. The crew will start working on the front of the buildings and then the back will be completed. While work is taking place on the front of the buildings, we ask that you remove your vehicle from the garage and off of the driveway to allow clear access. Ladders and planks will be set up across the fronts of the building which will block the garages. The aluminum soffit will be carefully taken down and set aside to be reinstalled. The old wood soffit will be cut out and rafter baffles will be installed to allow better intake of fresh air. There will be lots of sawdust and falling debris during this work. We ask that you remove all personal items from underneath the soffits in advance of work starting. Decks will need to be cleared off or moved to allow clear access. Atlas will not be responsible for damage to items not moved.

This work will begin on building 1 and will move numerically through the community per the below map. Paper notices will be posted on your garage door a day before work will begin. Additional updates will be provided on the blog and emailed out.

The purpose of this project is to create a properly balanced and ventilated attic space. The old plywood soffits are preventing the maximum amount of fresh air from entering the attic space. The high-profile ridge vents will allow the maximum amount of warm air to exhaust. This is called convection venting. As the air heats up it rises to the ridge and exhausts through the vents. This warm air is replaced by fresh air from the soffit intakes. A balanced system promotes the maximum amount of intake and exhaust. Attic venting in conjunction with adequate insulation is the most effective way to protect against ice dam formation. 


Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee against ice dams but having a properly ventilated and insulated attic is your best defense against them. The goal with attic ventilation is to keep the inside of the attic as close to the outside temp as possible. If warm air from the heated spaces or bath and dryer vents enters the attic, it needs to have proper exhaust to allow it to exit. As the warm air exits, fresh outside air is drawn in from the soffit intakes. 


Other situations such as bathroom and dryer vent locations and the direction a roof faces will cause snow on the roof to melt and also cause ice dams. These are situations without a great solution other than the preventive removal of the snow and ice.
