Questions & Answers

My older home does not have Soffit Vents. Does this product replace the need for installing soffit vents?

Asked by: bry
This item only provides clear channel/pathway for air to flow from soffit vent to roof vents, so that attic insulation will not block that pathway. You would need soffit vents for this Accuvent to function.

I plan on insululating my garages roof. Do I need more than just one piece at the bottom or the entire span of the roof?

Asked by: RIVERMANLIVE
You would need just one that would fasten to the top plate and then wrap up the inside of the roof sheeting. Depending on roof pitch as to how high up above ceiling joist it would cover, but will prevent insulation from blocking soffit vent and channel air toward ridge vent. You should have one above each of your soffit vents, and possibly one between each rafter on either side of soffit vent to prevent it from being blocked by blown in insulation.

staples

What size staples do i use? I don't want them to go through the wood. Thanks!
Asked by: Deech
I used 3/8" staples, I only used one in each of the six designated attachment points, suggest doing a couple at each location, I had a few come undone.

The 22.5" product is NOT compatible with 16" rafters. Can you get the 14.5" product?

While it's true that these are adjustable for off-width rafters, the 22.5" product is NOT designed to be reduced to 14.5" for 16" rafters. AccuVent (Brentwood/Amerimax) has a separate product. Can you obtain the 14.5" product?
Asked by: MrPete
Mine were scored on each side at several intervals to allow narrowing the vent to fit different widths. Also edges are flexible enough to allow custom fit.

41 in. x 22 in. Accuvent Vinyl Attic Airway and Soffit Vent in Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to install. However, after installing the 1st one... Easy to install. However, after installing the 1st one I wish I would have ordered a 51” length version instead of the 41” witch only allow for about 15” of insulation in the attic. I’ll need to be careful during the "blowing in" process as to not blow in the 1 1/2” air vent gap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Easy* to Install I bought these to install before blowing additional insulation into the attic. The Accuvent videos demonstrate installation in a new home without ceilings installed, which looks really easy. It was a little trickier installing them in my attic, but it worked out great and was easier that creating separate baffles. I wasn't able to staple every baffle part (could reach), but they held in place well enough. These vents are pretty tough, so you don't really need to worry about damaging them during the installation. They have perforations so you can easily make them narrower to fit between the rafters. I found it useful to have a light rake to pull insulation back from the attic edges and push the baffle back while installing.

Am concerned about their ablity to hold up to the heat that is in the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accuvent Soffit Baffles Easy to cut and install with the staple gun. Tip: if you cut them out wider and bend them at the correct perforations (creating fins), you get a custom fit and can staple into the excess / fins directly into the joists as opposed to stapling into the underside of the roof. You get a more rigid fit and if you replace the sheathing with you next roof you will not disturb the baffles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best baffle that I have used. The job was to retrofit an attic to bring the ventilation up to current code. The original cardboard baffles had been incorrectly installed and many had suffered from water damage prior to the original roof being replaced. These baffles went in easily and the raised spacers should assure that air flow from the lower vents will be maintained even if the owner decides to add more insulation later. There are perforated lines to allow the baffles to be easily be torn for reduced width truss spacings and to clear most structual members. The only cutting that I had to do was to clear some blocking and some wiring through the top plates. The baffles cut easily with a scissor. These baffles are sized to work with a 6-inch stud wall. Using them on a 4-inch stud wall required modifying the recommended stapling pattern. Not a big deal but plan ahead. Retrofitting these into a roof with a pitch of less than 6-in-12 will require that you be really small or have arms like an orangutan. These would best be used for original construction but we don't always have that luxury.
