    Hi,

    I have a need to install a tile vent. Tiles are interlocking Forticrete Gemini.

    I removed two tiles in different rows last night to find that the rafter is either right in the middle of the tile or impedes fitting by about 1/4-1/2 inch (the connector on the back of the vent for extractor take off)

    What are the options? Is it acceptable to sister the rafter and notch it? What would a roofer do when retrofitting in this scenario?

    Thanks

    If you can not move over a bit more . Use a lead slate a piece of pipe , weathering collar and a mushroom cowl . You can put it more or less anywhere

    That's how we do them. In fact it makes life easier when the pipe exits smack between (pan type) tiles.

    Thankyou chaps, not something I've done before - was hoping to just slot the vent tile in but will take a look.
