This is a bit off topic, but does anyone know how our garages vent air up there to remain a bit cooler or not accummulate humidity and mold in summer?

YES, it's a flimsy narrow aluminum ladder with very narrow rungs. My fault, I hired them for the floor (which again is FIRST rate), and they offered the ladder for under 300 bucks. I never questioned quality or specs on ladder .. My fault. First time I used it I did not feel safe on it, much less to cart stuff up and down for storage.. I should have shopped that separately

I have the pull down steps and would crack open the attic access door about 6", just stick a box in the there to hold it open. We have the horizontal screens on the garage door and you could stand right below the attic opening and feel air going up. However, fires often start in the garage and by having that open, a fire will immediately spread up into the attic and the whole house will be a goner. My electric bills are under $90 a month with SECO, so I'm not concerned about them, just don't put anything in the attic that heat can ruin.

Normal cooling is the air flow up through the soffit vents and out the top through the ridge vents. You can add an extra fans to suck the air upward, but I don't know if they pay off and some say that will void your shingle warranty.

He must of switched to something cheaper. The one he installed in my garage is very sturdy and I've been using it for years with no problem.
