Is the slot width for Hip Ridge Vent different from ShingleVent II? How do I know where the slot should be cut?

The slot WIDTH is identical to ShingleVent II. There are pre-marked lines at the top of the vent to guide you with marking the roof deck appropriately based on truss or ridge pole construction styles. For reference, they are set apart at a 1½″ width for truss construction and 3″ width for ridge pole construction. Please review installation instructions before use.

For slot length and roof locations, please refer to the Hip Ridge Vent installation sheet for details. The slot length is shorter than the nominal length of the vent to provide roof decking strength and weather protection between butted sections of Hip Ridge Vent.
