The standard roof vent design, one that we have in our Duraflo SquareTop 6050s, has been around in both metal and plastic for over 40 years—and not much has changed in that time
Do not hesitate to get in touch for any reason.
Ridge vent, tall vent, turbo vent, small vent—with so many vent choices out there, it’s hard to know which ones to choose. At Canplas, we recommend selecting only one type of vent for your rooftop.
Your home is protected by a backwater valve, either because you had a great builder, or you’re a smart owner. Off to a great start, right?
Maybe not. What a lot of homeowners don’t know (especially first-timers) is that without proper maintenance, your backwater valve may be completely useless.
Sometimes less is more, which is why we wouldn’t recommend putting 11 roof vents on the roof of a single gable-style home.
So how do you know how to get the perfect number of vents to have your home breathing right?
Ventilating your roof helps regulate the temperature and moisture levels of your attic, allowing you to save energy and prevent damage. So, it’s important to consider which components you will need to get stagnant air moving.
Despite the lack of any actual cutting, the age old adage “measure twice and cut once” is intensely relevant when choosing the optimal interceptor for your project. Attempting to save money upfront by buying a model that is clearly too small will result in sky high maintenance costs via weekly pump outs. And that’s if you’re lucky enough to avoid a full out kitchen back-up.

Home design is changing and so are the ways in which we need to choose our ventilation. Here are a few steps to make sure you’re choosing the right ventilation for your home.
In an industry dominated by concrete and steel since its inception, plastic is proving to be an increasingly worthy adversary. Well, that’s the nice way to say it. But as engineers, we far prefer the blunt version. Injection molded thermoplastics are now the premier grease interceptor construction material. Here’s why.
Grease management can be a daunting industry for newcomers, especially if it’s your first time trying to choose a system for your restaurant or project. And if you haven’t already, you’ll encounter a barrage of acronyms and seemingly complicated terms, like HGI, FOG, and interceptor. But don’t fret, because by the end of this post, you’ll be fluent in conversational grease-anese, and well on your way to selecting an ideal solution.
