If there wasn't previously a vent there it's doubtful you'll be able to put one in.
When they install vents there's frame work on all 4 sides to attach it to.
At best you'll only be able to attach one side of the vent to a rafter.

Thanks for the info...I'm hoping that when they advertise 3/8 plywood walkable roof it will be strong enough to support a vent...thanks again
