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 plan to run these in ever cavity from the soffit vent all the way up to the ridge vent and then spray foam on top of it just to allow the shingles to breath instead of doing a full hot roof. Does anyone know if these baffles will hold up to closed cell spray foam?
Asked by: joed
what did you end up figuring out? I have heard conflicting info on this subject. I believe in the right climate its a good idea to spray the closed cell foam straight to the underside of the sheeting as shown in may building magazines- this insulates attic space immediately and doesn't let the heat transfer into the attic , no 2" air gap for venting required. some codes don't allow this on the old rule practiced of air gap requirerd. having the airgap and then spraying would totally work and the baffels once sprayed over would be totally rigid , as the spry foam bonds very well I would not be concerned with the baffels falling as the spary foam would be bonded to the rafter as well. interested in your solution.

Do I need to install these all the way from the soffit to the roof ridge? And in every rafter or just a few?

Asked by: Jim
Use common sense, your attics arflow design & It's design. Each attic application is custom. In my attic I could barely get 1 every other rafter. Thats better than not having any and trapoing heat.

41 in. x 22 in. Accuvent Vinyl Attic Airway and Soffit Vent in Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product - does exactly what it's supposed to do. I purchased these because I was adding to the insulation in my attic. My house is 27 years only and I only had about 4 inches of blown in insulation up there. The only thing holding it in were cheap cardboard pieces stapled between the trusses so I needed something that would be easy to install and allow adequate venting once I added the additional insulation. The Accuvents were easy (relatively speaking since were talking about crawling around in an attic!) to install and the perforations on each side really allow for an easy custom fit if some of your trusses are off. Six staples in each and they're not going anywhere! This product is way more substantial than the flimsy foam baffles they sell in the store but very easy to work with and cut if necessary. Curious as to why they don't carry them in the store? Bottom line if you're adding insulation and looking for something to keep your insulation from covering your soffit vents then this is a great product to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, what a wonderful product No retrograde of an older house is easy. Without these wonderfully designed and durable devices I would have been in real trouble. My old house had no openings to the outside behind the soffits so I had to chisel out openings. I had to crawl in, at impossible angles to staple these and the perforations to adjust the size by easily tearing made the install a whole lot easier. I read on review saying that his baffles melted. That is bunk. They are made of pvc material and with sense anyone can install them. The instructions were easy but I went to youtube and saw them installed so I was all set. I never want to go through that process but without these wonderful high tech baffles it would not have been possible. You will have to think through your install (in my old house it was easier to get them in from the outside). Also I finished things off with easily installed vinyl, vented soffit. One of my most successful experiences, Thank you a lot!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vent - Does what it is supposed to You can't beat this vent at the price. Same material as the higher priced vents online and In store, plus they came shipped right to my door. I bought 10% more than I needed just in case I ruined any material. I ended up bring the unused portion back to the store. Very convenient!! I used more than 6 staples for installation. In the below freezing temps the plastic gets cold and cracks when you staple the material. I used 8 - 12 staples per vent. Get ready to crawl around in the attic. It helps if you can open up you soffits from the outside as well. They can be installed multiple ways as you see fit. I included a picture from the outside looking up into the soffit. During installation, I positioned all of the baffles in the attic, then I came outside and attached them to the header, lastly I finished installing them to the roof deck with 1/2" staples. Also, pro tip, make sure you insulate almost to the top of the baffles or cut them back to the height of your insulation otherwise you may develop a hot air mass that "hangs" in your attic below the level of the baffles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well This product worked very well with the Retro-install on my house. I was able to reach the top plate to pull the existing insulation back (with a 3-1/4" x 20" Rake tool I made), slide the Vent down the rafter into place with the folded back part onto the top plate. Stapled the vent to the deck per instructions with a air stapler ( a hand stapler would not work in these tight locations). I could use a fiber-glass batt (24" x 20") to place on the top plate to keep the bottom of the vent from being pushed back/out (that would open the blown-in insulation to the soffet). The length of the Vent and the pitch (4:12"?) have allowed about 20" of height to the top of the vent for blown-in insulation. The tear-off perforations were easy, worked well in tight places for those odd truss sets. Worth the $100+ bucks to keep the soffet vents from being covered, and wasting the blown-in insulation in the soffets. Wish I knew about these earlier to keep the insulation from being blown out during the remodel. New-Install ?. . . a piece of cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Baffle...period! I purchased a 1973 "time-capsule" but the original owner failed to vent the 2 attics when he had the roofs rebuilt. I research baffles for over a month before I found the Accuvent brand and I was NOT disappointed! I have to install 80 baffles and I can tell you that after installing the first 60, I am VERY satisfied with the product! The material is SOLID...unlike the "egg carton" material the other companies push. Some of the baffles only needed 6 staples, but most received several more because of the tight confined space I was dealing with...I highly recommend you get some plywood to lay on and a small headlamp...hammer stapler is a must! Also, I found it easier to rake back your insulation first then lay down the plywood (I used 3 smaller pieces)...trust me...it will go FASTER. Since I was dealing with an existing roof, I used the 90 degree bend on the plastic lip as a guide to lay it flat on the header. My only concern is the extreme heat in the summer...hopefully it won't melt or warp. I can't wait to blow in the insulation!!! Giddy Up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best On The Market These are hands down the best baffles available on the market today. This doesn't mean they couldn't be improved, but compared to the alternatives, this is the best product out there. Cardboard gets brittle over time. The foam products either don't cover the soffit or are made of an inferior paper-thin foam that easily cracks. The Accuvent is made of a relatively substantial PVC material (again, compared to the flimsy foam alternative), though it is brittle and I found it cracked under my staples often. The material could be a little bit thicker in order to handle the staples better. It is easy to cut and very flexible material. I'd recommend no fewer than 8 staples per baffle, though the directions state only 6 are necessary. I put 4-6 into the top plate/rim joist along with 4 into the roof sheathing. This was easy to install in a retrofit application. If your eaves allow access, you can easily staple the bottom of the Accuvent to the top plate and/or rim joist to anchor the baffle in place. Then, staple in the marked locations on the sheathing. Be careful for shingle nails! Hardhat, dust mask, and gloves are a must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a tough job easy Purchased to prepare a non insulated attic for blown-in insulation. These baffles were remarkable and made the job much easier than anticipated, especially for a 62 year old guy with a bad back. Whenever I do a construction type job I always allow for 10% waste - not needed with these. Despite having to crawl around in some pretty tight spaces and drag the baffles along with me, none got damaged and I didn't need the extras. The baffles are extremely light weight and much more durable than the styrofoam type baffles sold in the local Home Depot store. I can't figure out why Home Depot doesn't sell these in the store. Shipping from HD, via UPS, was extremely quick and free for an order over $45. The perforations in the baffles also make for easy customizing to place the baffles around various obstructions; all you need is a box cutter or a pair of scissors. Due to the tight quarters I was working in, I used an electric staple gun with 3/8" staples. That worked great. The baffles allow great air flow and made blowing in the insulation a snap. Great product, highly recommend.
