I have roof nails sticking through the decking wood in the attic about 1/2" will I be able to use this product over the protruding nails?
Asked by: BadLuckLazyGuy
I had this situation as well and I just pushed the nail through the plastic if I needed to to make the product lay flat. It was no big deal and the product works well.

I want to retrofit and my attic is very hard to get to the vent from the inside due to very low pitch. Can I install this through the vent from the outside - and then replace the vent?
Asked by: Magicmarker
I did ours from the inside with a 4-in-12 pitch. Can't imagine how it could be done from the outside unless the entire soffit were to be removed -- then still very difficult.

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.

41 in. x 22 in. Accuvent Vinyl Attic Airway and Soffit Vent in Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 138.

A builder/installer must use the right product at the right location, and it's apparent that at least ONE person didn't bear that in mind. In a new, or retrofit installation, one places this baffle beneath the roof decking and between the rafters...just as the company stipulates. I don't know why some people imagine putting any black plastic directly into the sun and think it's not going to overheat and warp. That's NOT the typical knowledgeable homeowner who would do such a thing.

Here's a bunch of tips and a killer secret for you, after installing these 20 years after the house was built. 1. They sell these in two widths and two lengths, 16" centers and 24" centers, 41" long and 50" long. This particular product is the 24" center version, 41" long. Do your insulation calculations FIRST before buying so you don't have to buy the cathedral extenders to keep your insulation from overflowing when you blow it. For 24" OC installations, the 50" product name is AV-241 and the 41" product is AV-240. 2. Use good quality scissors, NOT a knife, to cut out for roof joists and wires and such. It's faster and neater. 3. See the lip that hangs over the side of the header sill? That's only useful for new construction. If your house is already built, cut that off with scissors before you take them up to the attic. You'll want to seal that seam with caulk anyway to prevent air leaks, and so for retrofits there's no place to put that lip. 4. Don't use expanding foam on the header sill joints - use caulk (and press it in flush with your finger). The foam will make it hard to install these. 5. Don't just put these in without airsealing your attic, if it hasn't already been done. Expanding foam guns are very inexpensive and a can of foam will go a LONG way. It'll make a huge difference in your winter air leakage. 6. For the guy who left his in the sun and they melted - don't do that! I left a pack of these in my attic for a year before I installed them and there was no degradation at all. 7. When you install it, the part that lays on the header sill MUST be completely flat with no air gaps. If there's any way for outside air to get in between the baffle and the sill, that will be a cold spot in the winter! So MAKE SURE it's laying completely flat against the header sill. And even a little overlap into the soffit space is fine. 8. SUPER SECRET AWESOME TIP: Spray paint the tops silver before you install. It will reflect a ton of heat! HD sells Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch 2X Aluminum - spray the tops of your baffles with a light coat of this stuff. I can paint 11 baffles with one can.

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.

Only drawback I experienced, product came in two boxes with both boxes partially opened - heavier tape should have been used. Just started installing the vents and found I was short 20 vents (one box only had 5 vents)

Bending it to fit in was not a problem. I used this in new construction and it has marks on it where they want you to staple. Cuts very easy and would buy again.
