Wth the Fantastic vent cover you will need to remove caulk and screws in your flashing and insert their screws and re-caulk. I wasn't prepared to do that so went with the Maxaire despite what this video shows...Our fans move ample air with the Maxaires, don't think they are restrictive at all. Although you see a difference in the damper in the video, I think it has minimal effect on ability to actually move air...not enough for me to re-caulk around the flashing in any case.

WFD, I like the idea of not having to remove caulk and screws. Think I will go with the MaxAir II for that reason.

Very smart try not to disturb that seal around the vent. Nobody wants a roof leak or worst getting a leak between the rubber membrane and plywood decking that will cause the wood to delaminate. Roofs are expensive to repair, I know mine just cost 5400.00 to do and a week of time at the factory.....

Installed my Fantastic vent cover when I also installed a Maxxaire fan with remote over queen bed. Couldnt have taken more than an hour and tube and a half of Dicor. No leaks,even tho it was uncovered this winter

I decided to go with the Fantastic covers. It was very easy - 1/2 hour to install 3 covers. The small amount of caulk that is removed does not effect the sealing of the vent. A little goop in the screw hole / edge of vent / install the brackets / and then a little goop on the top off the new screw.
