Roofing/Metal roof vents

Question
I have a double wide mobile home that has aprox- six vents, I plan to cover the existing shingle roof with a metal roof, My problom is finding vents that will work with the raise seam metal roofing .

Answer
I would suggest contacting the manufacturer of your metal roofing. If they do not have any vent options to suggest then frankly I'd look for a different manufacturer.

If you decide that ridge vent is an option, two products you may wish to look into are ProfileVent and Cor A Vent.

All Best.
