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.

Great Ridge Vents!
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.

GAF Cobra Rigid Vent 3 is a great product, easy to install, includes many more nails than necessary, sections fit together like a glove. While I can see the point of it I don't like the "tear to fit a custom length" feature, as it tears if you miss a nail with the hammer, and then needs patching. I bought these on-line, and the free shipping was a nice touch but it took weeks and the packages were in terrible shape when received.

DOES NOT WORK
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 GAFProductExpertAug 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
