Re: How did you guys install your roof vents ?

Vent trim rings are available in different heights. Mine was too long, so all I did was cut it to fit. When I installed my roof vent I just marked out the 14x14 square with tape on the inside of the roof. Then I drilled 1/8" holes in the four corners through the inner skin and right on through the outer skin from the inside. Then all I had to do was take an air saw and connect the dots. Roof vent fit perfectly.

Re: How did you guys install your roof vents ?

Mr. Jkindd has got it going on. thats the way I put mine in, but I used a half inch drive drill using one inch hole saw in the corners drilling through both layers then used a sawsall with a long enough blade to cut the inner and outer at the same time. Then I finished the hole with 1x2 pine boards between the inner and outer metal, Did it all from the outside didnt have to deal with metal chips falling in my face or a grinder setting the insulation on fire. Oh yea dont do this without proper eye protection safety always.

You know what? Mine didn't even come with a trim ring, so maybe that is messing me up also. Well, maybe I can find one for my application.

Thanks for the pics! Came out great.

Just thought I'd throw out an idea for those putting in roof vents. If you put in enough of them and have not thought about putting in a roof top air unit, pre wire it up there so you would have less work doing it later.
