Mark-UK, good evening.

An "observation?"

Am I correct in assuming that this vent terminates externally?

if so? there is a very, very high probability that in winter months cold air will [probably] blow into the house?

Can I suggest that you consider fitting a vent terminal with "loaded" flaps that close when air is not flowing from the house, which in all probability will be most of the time?

Hi Ken,

The vents (either side) are to facilitate airflow into the roof of my shed so as to prevent build-up of condensation.

OK never used the material you are considering, but is the "reviews" are to be believed then i would go for it.

You would only need a cheap silicone if fitted vertical, or external panel adhesive (no-nails type) for horizontal as the key thing to not to cut to holes too big but rely on friction.

Make sure the vents are suitable for driven rain if being fitted vertically, else water will be getting in through them

Funny you should mention this as only the other day we had driving rain and I was thinking the vents might not be enough to keep it out.
