  • Will not rot, stays in place over time, and meets building code
  • Constant flow of fresh air from soffit vent to the ridge
Owens Corning Raft-R-Mate attic vent is an extruded polystyrene foam vent designed to assure unrestricted airflow from the soffit to the ridge vent. Additionally, Raft-R-Mate attic vent has an optional bend down air stop or insulation block at the top plate of the wall in one easy-to-install product. The optional air stop or insulation block prevents loose fill insulation from filling the eave space during installation of cathedral ceiling or attic floors, by closing off the opening below the Raft-R-Mate attic vent to the soffit. The Raft-R-Mate attic vents install quick and easily and are sized to fit 24 in., 16 in. and 12 in. on center framing. Utilize in both new and retrofit construction.

Questions & Answers

Could you not use these to enclose the rafters from the main part of your attic so there are open runs behind them to carry ventilation from soffit vents up and out the ridge venting?
Asked by: TomTom
Yes. These are somewhat flexible, enabling them to bend to fit where the exterior walls meet the roof. This allows the heat to rise between the baffle and roof decking to the ridge vent.

Since I have a vaulted ceiling and virtually no attic access I plan to install these from the outside by removing the soffits and pushing them up and in place -- probably need to use only a 1 foot piece just to get past the top of the insulation -- to hold down the edge of the insulation that is blocking airflow. Think it will work ?
Asked by: FLWinger
Not at all, it must be installed when you have full access.

Asked by: Joe
I'm pretty sure the box has 70 pieces. Yes they are approximately 11 inches wide. Very easy to install.

How thick is each piece? Also, can you couple each piece together to create a long running vent into the attic?

Asked by: Jakub
It about as thick as the styrofoam containers that some restaurants give you to take food home, meaning about 1/8 to 1/4 inch. And it is so flimsy I wouldn't suggest taping two together for greater length. The result would be a hard to handle thing, that'd crack easily. You can staple each separately, having the vent at the top of one feed into that on the bottom of the other. But there is a better way. I wanted what you want, a longer vent since it does channel heat upward, So I stapled two (overlapping slightly) to two thin strips of wood eight-feet long, one on each side. That has a major advantage. You don't need to crawl down next to your eaves to staple these into place. Simply insert the combination from where your attic is much higher, moving it to where it covers the eave vents. And to hold those wood strips in place, I simply put two nails in the rafters on each side and stretched a nylon cord between. That allows me to adjust the placement easily.

There is no comparison to the rigidity, thickness and design. As I slid these into position, the directed air flow was amazing having a nozzle effect, increasing velocity of air from soffit vent and directing it up toward the ridge vent.. It works. The price made me hesitate and Home Depot only sells online by the 70 pc. case. Having installed these now, I wouldn't hesitate to buy again. Superior. Installation. . The competitor's products are thin, flimsy, and brittle copys. These stayed in place in my 24" on-center rafters. I used an air stapler with Arrow T50 3/8 x 3/8 crown staples .I used the divergent grind points that give a little twist and hold great. Go to Arrow's website for more on metals and point types available. Stapling into deck sheathing with a Porter-Cable air stapler only drove the staples the depth needed. It didn't punch thru foam baffles, just good firm hold. Sliding insulation into position at edge of top plate, the rafter vents are rigid keeping airspace between roof deck sheathing and insulation and didn't rip/tear or crush and I had R-30 thick batts shoving into that cramped space. This product maintains airflow from soffit vents as designed. Features.. Owens-Corning rafter vents have an acordian portion that can be curved down to the top plate as a wind block. This keeps loose fill insulation from being blown back away from edges near soffit vents and when blowing new insulation into edges, it prevents the loose fill insulation from getting blown into soffit vent area plugging up the vents. To recap, the rafter vents work great and do exactly what they are designed to do, protect and provide the airspace needed for inlet air from soffits. I hope this helps you make an informed purchase.

The rafter bays I was insulating were from 1890, so none of them were the same width and none of them were standard 16" centers. I had to improvise but was able to do so fairly well with these. 1/2" staples for the install and I was done. Easy to trim as well with a good sharp razor.
