Metal Roof Vent

  • When venting through a roof is the best option a quality roof vent should be considered; the roof vent by Vent Works was designed with a back draft damper to prevent drafting from outdoors, we also included a removable ¼” inch galvanized steel screen. These heavy gauge vents are not available at your local home improvement or general hardware stores. There are 2 different material options; galvanized (26 gauge), or aluminum (high grade). Our vents are used in a wide variety of commercial and residential applications including heating systems, bathroom exhaust, kitchen exhaust, laundry room exhaust, venting spray booths, laser engraving machines, exhaust fan blowers and virtually anything else with a round exhaust.

    To Install: Cut a hole that is 1/8” inch bigger than the duct pipe, then install, be sure to seal it.

  • Is there a screen in the vent?

    Yes; our roof vents come with a 1/4” inch metal screen.

    Can it be used for dryer venting?

    Yes; these roof vents have a damper and removable screen so they can easily be used for dryer venting. Note: Make sure the duct run is within the recommended footage, for maximum footage refer to the dryer manufacturer manual.

    Can I use this with a bathroom exhaust fan?

    Yes; Try to match the bathroom fan exhaust outlet with the roof vent, it’s best when the diameter of the fan outlet, vent and duct are all the same e.g. if the bathroom fan’s outlet is 6 inch use a 6 inch roof vent with 6 inch ducting etc. If needed use a reducer to decrease/increase the diameter size to bridge the gap of difference from your fan to vent.

    Can I use this with a kitchen exhaust fan? (range hood)

    Yes; Try to match the kitchen fan exhaust outlet with the wall vent, it’s best when the diameter of the fan outlet, vent and duct are all the same e.g. if the bathroom fan’s outlet is 6 inch use a 6 inch roof vent with 6 inch ducting etc. If needed use a reducer to decrease/increase the diameter size to bridge the gap of difference from your fan to vent.

    Can this function as an intake vent?

    No; It can’t function as an intake vent without modification because the damper only goes one way to exhaust air out but if you removed the damper and left the screen intact you would have a fresh air intake vent. The easiest thing to do would be to purchase a screened vent made for intake applications. 

    Can the screen be removed?

    Yes; these roof vents have a removable screen, this screen is 1/4" inch steel mesh screen.

    What size hole do I drill for the pipe?

    Whatever the duct diameter is add 1/8" inch. Example if the duct (pipe) is 6” inch diameter, you'll want to drill a 6-1/8" diameter hole through the roof for the duct to fit properly.

    Can the roof vent be painted to match my house color?

    Yes; first prep by wiping down with a solvent like lacquer thinner or paint thinner to remove all oil residue so primer will adhere properly. Then use an epoxy or etching primer as a base. Then paint it with the color matched paint.
