The Bullet Gooseneck Vent
The Bullet Vent is a newly patented product, designed to aesthetically replace the old metal gooseneck vents at a competitive price. Next, Bullet Vents are made from a heavy-duty polypropylene carbonate material. Bullet Vents or GNV’s are to vent kitchen hoods or dryer vents through the roof. Our vents have one hundred percent UV protection. Furthermore, the vents are ideal for all types of shingle and concrete/clay roofing. Additionally, all our vents come with a rodent screen built in the top. Therefore this prevents rodents, birds, and other critters from entering the vent. As well, the screen prevents unwanted debris from entering the vent. Also, each vent has a built-in cricket for enhanced water flow. Finally, there is no need to paint since it comes in many colors to match virtually any roof application.

Fitting: First, remove interfering shingle nails around the perimeter of the roof opening. Second, depending on the application, apply a bead of shingle adhesive along the bottom of the flange, and slide the top end of the boot up and under the shingle. Last, allow the bottom vent flange to lie on top of the shingles or cut the shingle to fit.
Mounting: Take care to keep the boot properly aligned. Nail in place using 1-1/4” coated or stainless roofing nails spaced 6” to 8” on center, or at least 3 per side, maximum of 1” from the outer edge of the flange, and 1-1/2” from each corner. Apply roofing cement to all shingle edges and nail heads to prevent water infiltration. It is recommended to caulk around the entire perimeter, under the vent flanges, and near the outer edges (7108 Permathane Sealant), especially in severe weather coastal hurricane zones.
