Hello,

I need to fit eve vents for an attic conversion I'm doing on my house.

Will the standard products work because the roof ends in line with the wall (there is no eve overhang)?

Thankyou.

If the eaves are in line with the wall, is there no gutter then? Or fascia board? Weird.

I am replying only because nobody else has since your post last night, do not take the following as the definitive answer as I am not an expert, only a DIYer.

My interpretation of what you are trying to say by "in line with the wall" is that you do not have a soffit into which you can install soffit vents.

You do have a fascia in which circumstances you would use an over-fascia vent such as the Timloc OF2 for inhabited roof space.

However I am not sure that you can fit these to a uPVC fascia which it seems you have, they are normally nailed or screwed to the top of a wooden fascia before mounting it onto the ends of the rafters.

As a suggestion, stress, suggestion, you could remove a length of gutter then using a length of wood investigate whether you are able to lift the bottom course of slates by 50mm - if you can, then the Timloc Over Fascia Vent will slide into the gap as that is its height. Other types of vent may be available, I have not looked.

The alternative will be to remove the existing gutter & fascia, reinstall the fascia, or a new one, lower to accommodate the vent, then refit the gutter.
