Roofing nails
1.
From attic side of roof, determine the hole that will need to be cut. Hole should be located between two
trusses or rafters and at least 2' away from any chimney, roof valley or other vent pipes. In the center of
the hole, drive a large nail thru the roof sheeting so that the nail will be visible from the roof.
2.
From outside on top of the roof, use the protruding nail as a center. Cut a hole approximately ¼" larger
in diameter than the duct or collar being installed.
3.
For roof caps without a collar, insert the duct through the opening and run the duct back to the source.
Trim the duct parallel to the roof so that no more than ¾" of the duct projects thru the surface of the
roof. Trim the duct parallel to the roof pitch. Secure duct to the roof following the duct manufacturer’s
recommendations.
4.
Preparing the shingles: Lay roof cap into place, trace the outline of the flange onto the shingles. The
outline will be used as a reference for roof nail removal and shingle trimming.

collars, apply a bead of roof cement around the underside of the flange approximately 1” from the edge
of the flange.

Insert the back flange of the roof cap under the shingles and slide into position. Nail the top and sides
of the roof cap flange to the roof under the shingles. Seal each nail head with roof cement.
8.
Nail the exposed bottom flange of the roof cap directly to the roof.
Seal each nail head with roof cement.
