Dormer vents built to protect.
Dormer roof vents allow heat to escape from the vent itself and are important to properly cool attic space. However, because dormer vents are raised, they are a common entry point for dangerous embers. By equipping dormer vents with Vulcan Vents, the home has better protection from floating embers that fly before a fire.
