What is the airflow, in cfm, per length of ridge vent? I want to accurately plan my soffit venting

Asked by Jim January 12, 2020
2
Answers

Hello, as a static vent (non-powered) this product has 18 square inches per lineal foot of Net Free Area (open area for venting), so depending on how many lineal feet of ridge vent you plan to install, we recommend at least the same amount of total Net Free Area at the soffits/undereave to provide an effective, balanced system. Thank you for your question.

Good product. Did what was expected. Easy to install. Could use more of the accompanied nails. I bought 2" roofing nails to complete the project. Could not find 3" ring-shank roofing rails locally.

I love these ridge vents. They are sturdy, allow plenty of air flow, and are super easy to install. It is also very convenient that the 3" roofing nails are included.

These a-holes decide to sell ONLY one size of cobra ridge vent compatible with only 12in wide shingles and then ONLY sell hip-ridge shingles 10in wide at the store!!!! I am sitting here with a roof incomplete because I was sold this over the phone and the product is described as "compatible" with 10in shingles WITHOUT SAYING THE ONE WERE GOING TO DELIVER TO YOU WILL ONLY WORK WITH 12IN SHINGLES. To make it better, NO ONE SELLS 12IN SHINGLES IN THE SAME COLOR AS WHAT I HAVE INSTALLED. wwwttttttfffffffffff!!!!!!!!!

Response from GAFProductExpertAugust 4, 2020
Hello, we're very sorry for your experience. This product, being a 11.5" width ridge vent, is designed for use with 12" ridge cap shingles. The 9" width ridge vent is designed for use with 10" ridge cap shingles. That being said, when this product is installed properly, the product has been tested independently by 3rd party labs to meet or exceed the requirements of virtually all national and local building codes. Thank you. gaf

I have done some roofing when I was younger with my Uncle. I do remember most of it. I did watch the GAF videos and some more on Youtube. My Son (who is the most untalented at dyi, but at at Sports) and I did this the Saturday before Labor Day (what a way to spend your Holiday). Everything went together very good (but not cutting the ridge out, that was the hardest part of it). The Video's were good to watch because there are different helpful tips in all of them. Looks good. I did put down a 8 inch screen mesh before putting on the Ridge Vent. On Labor Day (the following Monday) we had a brief Thunder Storm with some wind, I got into my attic and found no rain came into my attic. So, for the first time in 20 years of doing anything on the roof, I did pretty good. I was worried that the Shingles wasn't laying down to good, but they did good during the storm and have flattened out in the heat of the days since. Thanks Home Depot and GAF!
