Gooseneck vent in my roof
Posted by Raoul Allagrande on May 12, 2003 at 16:53:08:
I recently had a new roof installed, at which time I had the roofers install a gooseneck vent for the exhaust fan in my upstairs bath. This vent has a flap, and my house faces SSW and the wind is always hitting the flap and making noise. What alternatives do I have? I have to vent the exhaust fan, and I don't want to put a new vent in as I've been told this is the correct vent... My ideas were: 1) put a magnetic weight of some sort on the underside of the vent flap so that the wind wouldn't open it, but direct exhaust pressure from three feet below it would... or 2) glue the flap shut, drill a few holes thru flap. What do you think? Do you have any alternative siolutions to this annoying problem? Thanks - Raoul.
