Maximum 301 Roof Vent - Advice


Hi,
Ontario, Canada here. Wicked weather, cold, snow and ice in winter.

I really hate the look of my new roof vents. Might there be any other options at this point? Shingles are awesome. Roof vents do not look pleasing to my eye. Roofer installed 3 Maximum 301 Roof Vents:

I like the look of Duraflo:

Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

Maximum 301 Roof Vent - Advice


Thoughts - Those maximum vents are heavily overrated. Best vents are plastic shingle over ridge vents.
For standard vents I like duraflos as well.
Where in onterrible are you?

Maximum 301 Roof Vent - Advice


Wowsers...those Maximum ones are hideous in my opinion.

What is the rest of the venting like?

Those things put the UG in ugly IMHO. Good for a corrugated metal warehouse where they slaughter chickens though.

Unless your in a large mansion on the hill, those are far too large in scale to look good on typical residential homes. I would have opted for more smaller vents.
