Default vent to curb connections





I have to attatch goose necks and j-vents to roof curbs...16 oz. copper; so it is user friendly...Maybe 34 total units. My question is...what is the proper method for joing a vent to a curb? I want to minimize the soldering and give the field guys as little to do as possible. Simplify installation...My pictures are horrible, but I wanted to ask this question...The AC goose necks must be kept open on the front to go around existing wiring...I apologize for calling these items by inncorrect names and I hope the pictures are helpful in answering my questions. I used my Pittsburgh seamer to minimalize joints and well...just curious what the rest of the world does.Thanks!

Rothalion,

Very nice work. I am jealous, I haven't been able to work with copper since 2nd year sheet metal school, I made a watering can, which my mother uses to this day.

Is that a hammerlock seam connecting the gooseneck to the flashing?

Thanks Bud, its nice to hear a compliment we get so few really. Skills...sometimes I think its luck...For me I fear actually saying I'm happy with them until they are installed, its bad luck. But hey they sure are some pretty dryer vents, too bad once they're on the roof they will never be seen again.

Scootluc, Also thank you, we are loving this copper job! Most of our work is with stainless...so to have a respite from that task master is greatly appreciated. Hammer lock..yes the front and backs are attached with a Pittsburgh seam and the sides have the curb part integrated. Once together they are soldered inside. The guys did a great job with the assembly. Im proud of them. When I layed out the first one they looked at the pieces and went what the heck is that? But after the first one came together they were stoked.

Pricer, Thanks for the support. As I mentioned we get very little feedback.

I also want to say, they are not MY vents but OUR vents. Three of us have worked on them. I just always tend to type my...the guys would kill me!

Thanks

the curb could have been a counter flashing, with that roofed and soldered a snug fitting goose neck ( depending on the pitch of the roof and the height of the top of the flashing the goose neck would be countering) should make light work for the installer...Rich
