Fascias and Soffits replacement

I am having my fascias etc. replace. Can anybody tell me which is the prefered ventilation to the roof ?. Do you have any other little snippets of info that may be helpful when getting quotes.
Thanks

What kind of soffits are you putting on? Most common and least expensive are aluminum soffits, which come with integral vents. If you have plywood soffits already, you would want to remove the plywood to allow for the flow of air. The small round vents that you occasionally see don't allow enough air in IMO. If you have plywood soffits, I'd recommend a continuous strip vent, commonly available at lumberyards. If you really want to go high end, you can make your own vents with hardware cloth and trim (spray paint the framing underneath black).

Is the roof currently vented from the soffit? Is the roof currently vented from anywhere else? Do you have anything more to spend than the minimum? How offensive to you find standard aluminum soffit venting? What do your local codes require? What climate do you have where you are? Is the roof 'flat' or 'pitched?
