Ridge vent?


Darn. Never thought about it. I've seen metal RV that could probably accomadate 14-16/12. But, that was a while back.

Ridge vent?


This is from Air Vents site, regarding the Shingle Vent II. The metal multi=pitch version only can go up to a 12/12 pitch though.

AIR-VENT:
ShingleVent II has pre-printed slot guides for truss or ridge pole construction. Pre-drilled nailing holes are designed to assure proper nailing. The vent is pre-formed to a 4/12 pitch, and fits pitches from 3/12 to 16/12.

it`s a pain in the butt w/12 on 12,wouldn`t want to try 16 on 12,some of the rollvents conform better to the steeper pitches
