Cobra® IntakePro
Rooftop Intake Vent

Allows you to add attic intake ventilation when you have no soffits.

Many homes in North America have inadequate attic ventilation systems, which can often be attributed to the lack of proper attic intake ventilation. Failing to properly install intake ventilation can render your attic ventilation system virtually useless. Intake ventilation lets cool, fresh air into the system, while exhaust ventilation (typically a ridge vent) allows moist, warm air to exhaust from the attic. Unfortunately, proper intake ventilation is often overlooked by siding, gutter, or painting contractors who typically work in the soffit/undereave areas of your home. In addition, Cape Cod-style homes without soffits, soffits with clogged or painted-over vents, and vented roof deck systems are challenging to ventilate without expensive modifications.

A properly balanced attic ventilation system consisting of both Cobra® IntakePro™ Rooftop Intake Vent and exhaust vents will help:

    • Promote your home’s energy efficiency by allowing cool, fresh air to enter your attic, driving moist, warm air out
    • Add critical intake ventilation to homes with little or no soffits
    • Boost the airflow of your attic ventilation system when used with existing soffit undereave vents
    • Guard against ice damming in harsh winter climates
  • Prevent premature roof system deterioration and limit the growth of harmful mold and mildew

Homeowner’s Best Choice

  • Promotes Energy Efficiency… Allows cool, fresh air to enter your attic, driving moist, warm air out of your attic’s exhaust vents
  • Excellent Protection… Helps guard against roof system rot, ice damming, and mold and mildew growth
  • Boosts Existing Attic Ventilation… Can improve attic ventilation airflow by up to 20% when installed with existing soffit/undereave vents in a properly balanced ventilation system*
  • Looks Good… Tapered shingle-over design blends in seamlessly with the look of your roof
  • Peace of Mind… Up to a Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs**
