How to install soffit vents – Seattle Roofing Companies

Installing soffit Vents

From the inside of the attic locate a spot large enough in the soffit to fit the vent.  Make sure you have plenty of space and air can flow free.  Drill a hole in where the middle of the vent will go to allow you to see where it is from the outside.

From the outside, outline the vent on the soffit.  Be sure the vent will fall between the the rafter ends or nailer strips.

Cut the vent opening about 1/4 inch inside the marked lines to leave roof for attaching the vent covers.

Install the soffit vents and fasten them with exterior galvanized wood screws.
