Roof Vents

4 posts in this topic

Are any better than others?? I currently have the ceiling down and noticed that there is only 3 vents.... I am thinking the turbine style... For the money they seem decent.

Steel vents are the best, besides a ridge vent.

Turbines very easily can leak.

This is a common problem in most houses that are older. Proper ventilation is key.

Just my opinion, (I'm no roofer) but I agree with Roofer, my dad has the turbine style, and they have been kind of a pain. I've been up on his roof more times to mess with them than I care to think about. Usually its because the bushing areas dry out and they squeak, or sometimes squeal steadily until you go up and lubricate them. This past summer we noticed it was not turning so I went up and found the support brackets for the shaft had cracked and broke so we had to replace the whole thing. When it was off you could clearly see that moisture had frequently been on top of the insulation. I think the concept of them is good, but the functionality isn't up to par. I'd go with stationary steel vents or ridge vents.

Yep, they always leak..... wink Sometimes it is a ventilation problem though.

Steel vents or a ridge vent. You don't want both.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
