Title

Re: Alternative fitting

Thank you for bringing this extremely important point up as it is something that has been mentioned in the past.

The action of the weather often produces aggressive pressures on a roofs surface which would have a destructive effect on loose laid materials and at best, force a route in for driven rain and snow, etc.

Underfelt is a critically important barrier in the make-up of modern roofs and must never be haphazardly breached, at least not without solid, built in safeguards – which a properly fitted lapVent does provide. Therefore, because of the way that a roofs substructure is laid out it would be impossible to fully weatherproof the installation of a lapVent unit without following the suggested fixing instructions and set guidance.

Hope this helps
