The roof vent met my expectations. It does not install as fast as a rolled vent but the finished product looks 100% better. I doubled capped the vent to give it more definition and was pleased with the look. The product vents well.

    Need question answered.
    I installed the ridge vent, looks and works good. BUT when a heavy downpour occurs my roof leaks BAD. What do I do?????? The rain is so heavy that it dos not have a chance to drain out and its causing a lot of damage. I need answers please. It IS installed properly. The Shingles are to the outer edge of the vent, do I need to have "More overhang of an inch or two to stop heavy downpour leaks????

      Don't forget the extra-long ring-shank nails. GAF did.
      These used to come with special ring-shank install-nails attached to the product. Quite a surprise when you're almost done and now have to drive around looking for 3" ring shank nails (as recommended in the GAF instructions.) Nobody carries 3" ring-shank nails. Please don't be tempted to use smooth nails, nor 1 3/4" unless the wind never blows in your climate. GAF - Shame on you for this bone-headed bean-counter move. Home Depot - Please use your clout to complain to GAF on our behalf. As of 10-2020 the GAF website still shows "A premium-quality rigid-style vent with integral Snow Guard™ Filter and 3” (76 mm) ring shank nails." Stunning.

      Thank you for your feedback. Cobra SnowCountry does not come with nail. Our SnowCountry Advanced product does have nails included. gaf

        The ridge vent allows unrestricted air flow. Much better than the roll type. Easy to install. The only issue is the instructions show nails attached to the edges but they are not attached. Buying ring nails is a must. 1 3/4"-2"

        Very easy to install and cover with shingles just make sure you have 3 inch nails to install it and buy enough to cover the open roof ridge as these items are only 48 inches long.

        There is a fit issue with newly required across-the-ridge hurricane straps
        I cut the appropriate width slot at ridge (1-3/4" for truss construction) and then applied the hurricane straps as per code. When the ridge vent is applied, it conforms differently where the straps are than where they're not. This has telegraphed thru to cap shingles and I will have to find some way to fix it so it doesn't show. It would also be nice if they molded in lines every inch or so across the width for help in lining up cap shingles.

          Easy to install, plan on using 21/2" to 3" roofing nails not supplied as some descriptions lead you to believe. I used this ridge vent with GAF Timberline HD shingles. Looks great.
