ProfileVent® From Ventco® Reaches 1 Million Installations


Glenside, PA - Ventco® President Marty Rotter announces that ProfileVent® has now been a part of 1 million installations, still with no callbacks. ProfileVent is a ventilation system for commercial and residential metal roofing, manufactured by equipment that precisely cuts the panel profile into the surface, resulting in a leak-proof fit every time. It will not absorb water, mildew or create ponding water from rain or condensation.

ProfileVent is UV stable, will not deteriorate and comes with a 30-year-to-lifetime warranty.

“It’s really mindboggling when you think about it … 1 million installations,” Rotter said. “We’re as excited about this as we were about our very first installation. We’ve come a long way and we’re looking forward to the next million installations.”

ProfileVent is a single-layer ridge vent on a roll. It’s a strong, durable modified polyester, non-woven, non-wicking fiber-based matting, designed specifically for metal roofs. Newly installed proprietary computerized equipment provides precise custom cutting to fit each panel, preventing leaks and insect/snow infiltration. ProfileVent is specifically cut to fit more than 50 standing seam and metal screw-down roofing panels, which Rotter said is more than any other ventilation system manufacturer.

ProfileVent fits under any ridge cap and pitch ranging from 2:12 to 20:12. It won’t crack, dent or rust during shipping or installation. In fact, after 20 years and 1 million installations, the company is still waiting for its first callback. ProfileVent is a single-layer ridge vent delivered in 20, 50 and 100-foot rolls and 3-foot sticks direct from Ventco.

The company also offers Hip&RidgeVent® for universal application to any screw down panels ½” to 1½” high. All Ventco products are manufactured in the U.S.A.
