INSTALLATION IS EASY — it’s all in the box! Each carton contains six 4-foot pieces (24 lineal ft.) of Roof-2-Wall Vent, a 25-foot long x 14-inch wide roll of flashing, one bag of 2 1/2" nails and four EC-400 Roof-2-Wall end caps.
Step 1: Start by cutting 1" wide clear slot in roof deck at or near the top. Stop slot no less than 6" from the ends of the roof section to be ventilated.
Step 2: Apply 3/8" bead of flexible caulk (NOT roofing cement) beneath Roof-2-Wall™ Vent pcs. and nail down with 2 1 /2" nails provided*. Run vent at least 6" past slot in decking and close off ends with EC-400 Roof-2-Wall End Caps provided. Use a flexible caulk to seal all seams, then run another 3 /8" bead of flexible caulk along the top of all vent pcs.
Step 3: Use Roof-2-Wall flashing provided to cover vent, up onto wall. Nail flashing securely to the wall and overlap flashing with housewrap or felt paper/water-proof membrane.
Step 4: Cap or cover Roof-2-Wall assembly with shingle tabs or heavy-gauge/decorative metal cap. Be sure to caulk all ends and joints to ensure a water-tight installation.
A minimum 3/12 roof pitch is required for Roof-2-Wall application
Due to the wide variety of material choices and possible installation options, it is the installer’s responsibility to seal the vent assembly’s ends with appropriate method and materials to prevent weather infiltration.

Buildings wider than about 30 feet from the edge of the outside wall to the junction of the roof and wall are usually too wide to use the Roof-2-Wall vent with. Our ridge vents were designed for residential and light commercial use. Our vents will not vent enough air to meet code requirements on buildings over 30 feet wide between the outside wall and the roof to wall junction. Please call Cor-A-Vent before using the Roof-2-Wall vent on buildings wider than 30 feet between the outside wall and the roof to wall junction.
