Self-Flashing Attic Fan
Single roofs consist of overlapping rectangles laid out in rows with plastic-lined tiles at the roof's ridge. Shingles can be made of a variety of materials, including wood, slate, asbestos-cement, composite, ceramic, or asphalt, though wood and paper-based asphalt shingles have become less common due to increased fire risk.
If you have a shingle roof, a self flashing attic fan is the right choice for you. These fans are designed to meet the special challenges presented by shingle roofs and include a flashing to be installed under the shingles. This creates a watertight seal, prevents leaks, and helps the fan to blend in with your roof's topography a bit better.
