Installation & Resources

Folding Vent need to be installed 24” from the top of the ridge line directly between two rafters. After locating this position, drill a hole from the inside of the roof in order to create a circular cut slightly smaller than the opening of the vent base. Place the top of the vent parallel to the ridge; making sure to overlap the existing shingle. Secure using sufficient length roofing nails aligned with pre-drilled holes on vent.
