I NEED to add some roof vents for attic ventilation of HOT air. My roof line only has one previous vent.

I have looked at these vents at the local retailer, but...

they are loose and do not come with cutting templates or instructions.

Could someone please email me with instructions specific on how to template the hole in the roof and how exactly the roof vent is to be installed with the existing shingling, what to use for sealant, nails or screws, etc.

Thank you for your time and attention, and for your reply.

Hi rhillinaugustaga,

Visit <a href="http://www.roofhelp.com/">Roofing Help.com</a>. Search around or e-mail them w/questions. You might want to ctc. the Mfgr. of your Ridge Vent. They may have the INstructions for you. (I'm sure you're NOT the first person to ask.) DO be sure to tell them if the install is a 'retro-fit' or 'new construction'.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

PS: You can visit a decent library or bookstore that has this info for you. For the $$$ you save by doing it yourself, spend some of that $$$ on a good book ...

You might want to consider a power attic vent. They are thermostat controlled and come with the necessary instructions. I installed one myself and am very happy with it. On a hot, still day one of them will move a lot more air than nature will.

During Hurricane Sandy, buckets and buckets of rain driven by 40 mph winds poured through my north-side attic vent, through the walls and damaged floor, ceiling, and walls in my 125-year-old farmhouse. I cannot find a repair person to give me options other than sticking with the current system that's open all the time. Something that I can close from the inside when I know a storm is coming would be ideal. The ceiling in my dining room offers tell-tale signs that this has been an ongoing problem over decades -- crack-filler tape hanging down. I really don't know what to do.
