GAF Introduces New Hip Vent from Cobra®

Cobra® Hip Vent

Homeowners want the peace of mind of a quality roof overhead. But what if your roof isn’t a standard shape or pitch?

GAF Roofing is proud to introduce its new Cobra® Hip Vent. A hip vent is specifically created to help ventilate houses without a natural ridge, or “point”, in its structure. Most houses have a built-in ridge where a standard ridge vent can be installed. Hip vents are great solutions to provide the proper attic ventilation solution and protect your home and roofing deck from the effects of weather.

The new Cobra® Hip Vent allows nine square inches of net free ventilation area for exceptional attic venting. Because of its relatively short stature at 5/8″, the Cobra® Hip Vent is virtually undetectable from ground level. The angle and position of the Cobra® Hip Vent prevents ice damming through extreme winter conditions.

The Cobra® Hip Vent also includes a Dual Weather Fighter Filter to protect against insects, debris, and water invasion around the vent opening. The unobstructed vent design allows continual air flow to protect against rot and mold conditions. The Cobra® Hip Vent comes with a Lifetime limited warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs.

The install process of the Cobra Hip Vent is easy with 3 coils of 1 3/4″ corrosion-resistant nails included for quick installation over flashing. With flexible installation, quality air flow, and energy efficient design, the new Cobra® Hip Vent is a great solution to extend and protect the quality of your roof and attic.

I’d be an idiot if I did not take this opportunity to communicate to you how much we appreciate the way in which you conduct business and take care of our facility. In my experience you, and your team, are at the top of the list of all the roofing companies I’ve dealt with over the years. Thank you!

Eric and crew were really nice to have around. They were courteous, careful and caused little if any disruption. Their work looks good too! To be honest… a good experience with a product that I initially had misgivings about. I’m a convert because of Bubba, Sam and Eric. Thank you.

“I want to thank the crew at R&A for a job well done on our very leaky roof at the shop. It is certainly nice to have the drips and rivers gone from the shop when it is raining. I also wanted you to know how much we appreciated that the guys were able to stay out of our way and allowed us to do business as usual without any problems or interruptions. The roof looks great and the clean-up after the job made it so we couldn’t even tell you’d been here. Thanks for doing what you do so well!”

Jay Moore, President of Safe Way Tire and Auto Center

“My wife and I were on vacation when water pipes burst in our house. We got a hold of Craig and the R&A crew was able to start evacuating the water immediately. The best part was that they were able to start work before we even returned home. It was a very fast turnaround considering the extensive amount of water damage.”

Will from Dardenne Prairie, MO

“Craig and Mike came out in a timely fashion when we needed the work done. They did a reliable and quality job.”

Jerry from SLR Properties

“Craig helped us out tremendously with the insurance process. Timely and very professional.”

Lindell from Greater Missouri Builders (GMB)

“We purchased a house and there was some damage to the roof. Very impressed with the thoroughness of Mike’s inspection. Very comfortable with their explanation of what needed to be fixed. Most impressive was the way they protected our landscaping. Really liked the way they treated me as a valued customer, even though it was only a small project.”

Ross from Troy, MO

“I use R&A Contracting when my commercial roofs receive storm damage. They work on our behalf through every step of the insurance claim process. They perform all of the work and complete the insurance process, making our roofs better than they were before the storm.”

Director of Facilities for a large Property Management Company

“The team at R & A Contracting responded immediately when notified of our water disaster. They removed water-damaged materials and property quickly and restored our home even before the final settlement from our insurance company. They minimized how long our family had to live in a hotel and got us back to normal as fast as possible.”
