Question Roof Vents

I was wondering if you could build your own roof vents and vent your attic with them instead of buying those expensive ones??

I suppose you could. Attic ventilation is fairly simple, cooler air comes in low and forces hot air out higher. The big thing with making your own would be both making it look good AND making it weather proof - no moisture leakage!

im not sure which 'expensive ones' you're referring to; however all the ones ive got are the silver looking ones that spin...sry i dont know the name of them or how much they cost.

however ... u must listen to mark when he says "no moisture leakage", he's a very wise man

its very important the project is sealed up to the best of ur ability ( or someone elses if you decide to go in that direction) moisture can cause lots more damage in the long run.
