Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pro44 Photo & Heat Sensitive Product Worthless for a Warm to Hot Climate
This product is both photo and heat sensitive rendering it worthless for installation in southeastern Arizona and any other warm to hot climate. After installation between rafters in the attic area of a house in Tucson, AZ - with about one-hour of exposure to direct sunlight - the product warped out of its original shape into a grotesque unusable melting form reminiscent of the Witch in the Wizard of Oz. The installation was during May of 2016 when air temperatures were relatively mild. Don’t waste your time or money on installing this worthless product in a warm climate. For illustration, a picture taken after exposure to minimal direct sunlight is included with this review.

I was surprised how easy and quickly these were to install. Only took about an hour. Working as advertised.

Seven staples and they were in. Installed about thirty of these and I'm not worried about airflow to my ridge vent now. A simple idea that works, I highly recommend these. Only takes a minute to install one.

Nice design and easy to install, not sure if that would be the case as a retro fit. My installation was right after rough in of garage/shop prior to ceiling and insulation. Sturdy material and did not snag on roofing nails. I like the designation of where to staple which made for consistent placement with staple gun. The tear away tabs allowed easy fit on the gable ends with smaller spacing between rafters. The design looks like it will permit plenty of air flow, time will tell as I finish the interior.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shopbuilder Accuvent attic vent
Accuvent attic vent is thin, probably subject to deformation with heat. Reinforce staple areas to prevent pull through later on. 41" is too short for my lower pitch roof and desired depth of insulation. Home Depot doesn't appear to carry the longer model. Adjustable panels to fit a variety of top plate configurations. Used the styrofoam ADO vents on one section. Both are similar in quality, mounting, dependability.

This product is MUCH better than the pink Styrofoam ones you can purchase, and the price is right. I was working in a very tight 4/12 pitch attic. This was the best product I could find for the price. NOTE: If you do not have a top plate from the wall below to staple the bottom of the baffle, you will need to be carefully place the baffle so that the air will flow as intended. This can be tough to do, especially in a tight space.

Installation was challenging because the roof rafters and floor joists in my 80 yr old home are spaced unevenly. At first glance the baffles seem thin and flimsy, but they are actually very rugged and held up well as I carved out openings to accommodate my floor joists. I used these baffles to replace make-shift cardboard baffles I had installed about 20 years ago. They had warped from attic heat, and had separated from the duct tape I had used to secure them.
The instructions that came with the accuvents were very basic. I found an installation video on youtube that helped me figure out how to adapt the product to work in my situation. Strongly recommend searching youtube web site for search term "accuvent".
I was unable to use a staple gun to secure the ends of the baffle to the top wall plate due to tight quarters, so I used tacks to secure them. I plan to use foam sealant to prevent air leakage between the baffles and structural members.
For my application these baffles were head and shoulders superior to anything I could find on the shelves at my local big box stores. Wish Home Depot would consider making them available in stores rather than just online.
