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.

Installation Instructions

One person can easily install the handy four-foot Roof-2-Wall sections. All you need is a hammer, circular saw, chalk line, utility knife, tape measure and a caulking gun. These instructions are typical for a standard shingle roof application or call our technical dept. for advice on your specialized application, or send us a print and we’ll “mark up” where and how to vent it.



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.
 

NOTE: Installer is responsible for sealing ends of vent for each specific 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.

* Be sure to use nails long enough to penetrate vent and roof deck. Heavyweight, architectural and re-roof installations may require a longer nail than the 2 1/2" ones provided.

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.

Revolution used for Joplin, MO project

Cor-A-Vent recently donated Revolution Rolled Ridge Vent to the Tulsa, OK Habitat for Humanity to be used in their re-build project in Joplin, MO to help re-build that community in the wake of the devastating May 22 tornado. You can read about the Ten for Joplin project here: http://www.tenforjoplin.org/

 

(Habitat-Tulsa press release) JOPLIN, Mo. – Sept. 8, 2011 – The Tulsa and Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity teams, surrounding businesses and the City of Joplin are partnering on one of the most aggressive rebuilding efforts since last May’s devastating EF-5 tornado. The Ten for Joplin project team plans to build 10 homes during a 16-day period for low-income families in Joplin by Thanksgiving.

Community leaders announced the project at a news conference on the site of one of the new homes. The build is scheduled between Oct. 29 and Nov. 13 and will be take place in a neighborhood of Joplin that was in the affected area.

As the citizens of Joplin move into the rebuilding phase of their recovery, the need to help those who lost their homes has become evident. Of the nearly 7,500 homes damaged, some 43 percent were uninsured.

Ten for Joplin’s vision is to ignite volunteer efforts to rebuild Joplin by setting an example of what can be accomplished when businesses and communities come together to help one another.

“This is an exciting partnership that will not only provide 10 homes for 10 families, but will demonstrate the many benefits communities gain when working together,” said Joplin City Manager Mark Rohr. “As part of the Midwest, Tulsa Habitat and all of their volunteers and sponsors recognize the powerful reward one gets when helping their fellow neighbor.”

Donations and volunteers are needed to make this project a reality. The goal is to raise $800,000 in funds plus gifts in-kind and get 3,000 volunteers to support us on the blitz build. To date, Ten for Joplin has secured $400,000 toward this goal.

Companies that have signed up to be house sponsors are Hilti, Henry & Anne Zarrow Foundation, BKD CPAs & Advisors, Samson, TD Williamson, Inc. and Chase. Advanced Industrial Devices, Inc. also has signed up to sponsor half a house. Gift in-kind donations have been provided by Hilti, Thermal Windows, Inc. and Cor-A-Vent. United Way contributed tornado relief funds to help with the purchase of the ten lots.
