SealBlaster Sealant

NOW AVAILABLE with vent purchase

Purchase our SealBlaster Sealant so you have the proper caulking to use on your vent installation. The sealant is clear in color so it matches any application. This caulking is completely compatible with our products and their installation procedures. It can be installed in wet conditions and is compatible with all roofing applications. 10.2 fl oz tube.

To get free shipping on the sealant, you must order no more than one tube per vent or LightBlaster product on the same order — as that is what can fit inside each Solar Blaster vent and LightBlaster box. The sealant does not qualify for free shipping if purchased separately (*see note about ordering larger quantities).
From a 30-year Roofing veteran that understands the sciences of roof ventilation and I can say that this is the most ingenuitive breakthrough that you could possibly come up with... It works in conjunction with the already existing ridge vent giving you maximum air flow reducing energy cost in the summer and removing moisture from the heat transfer condensation that causes the ugly mold growth during the winter.

Asphalt Roof Application

Get the maximum benefit from ridge ventilation by adding our Solar RidgeBlaster roof fans and solar panels for a clean and green solution to boost your attic ventilation. Remove hot attic air from the highest point even more effectively with Solar RidgeBlaster! Ridge venting is one of many passive roof vent options that you can choose from. But like all passive roof vents, they only work when there is a breeze.

So what happens on those stifling, hot days where there is no air movement?

Literally, you end up with an oven on top of your living space.

How does a Solar RidgeBlaster™ prevent an attic from turning into an oven?

A Solar RidgeBlaster® roof vent turns that passive vent into a vent that works regardless of lack of wind and even works on overcast days. Your attic's heat will be pulled out much more efficiently. So while the sun is the source of all your attic heat, it can also be put to work in pulling that hot air and moisture out. This solution is a very economical way for you to solve your attic heat problem.

How do you install a Solar RidgeBlaster™?

Here's both a video and an installation guide showing how a professional roofer can install this product on your roof:

  • Solar-powered fan vent that ventilates a home's attic, shed or garage with ridge vents
  • Added advantage over other vents because ridge vents exhaust air at the highest point
  • Helps remove hot, moist air faster than a passive ridge vent alone
  • Helps promotes uniform air movement throughout the vented space
  • Helps minimize mold/mildew growth
  • Helps prevent moist wood that can lead to rot and pest infestations
  • Improves your living space by removing the hot, oven-like temperatures in a home's attic
  • Makes a shed or garage into a cooler work environment
  • Improves the air quality in sheds and other work spaces by promoting fresh air movement
  • Prevents tools from rusting in sheds and garages because moist air is being removed
  • The three fan configuration allows the fans to turn on individually and gradually as the sun rises and produces more and more solar energy.
  • Easily installation (download the installation instructions above)
  • The fans work whenever the sun shines
  • The ridge vent itself always works as a passive vent 24 hours a day, rain or shine
  • 25 year-rated solar panel (10 Watt)
  • Three 50,000 hour-rated fans (15 years at 9 hrs/day)
  • 2900 rpm / 35.2 cfm two-ball bearing fans
  • Patent-pending fan mount (made of 0.063" Aluminum 5052-H32) that fits right below the ridge vent opening
  • Two copper-clad mounting brackets

Introducing our brand new Solar Metal RidgeBlaster™ roof fan and solar panel for boosting your attic ventilation on metal roofs. It is a perfect application for sheds, garages and even homes with metal roofs. Remove hot attic air from the highest point even more effectively with Solar metal RidgeBlaster™!

So how does this attach to a metal roof?

Glad you asked. Before installing the final ridge vent cover, you attach the floating footprint flashing under the ridge vent cover with the fan attached using the copper-clad mounting brackets right inside the ridge vent opening. Then connect the two ends of wire to the panel and that's it. Our RidgeBlaster products include maintenance-free flashings. This features a very clean-looking installation application.

Can this be installed on a metal roof that already has ridge venting?

Ideally, these vents and fans should be installed before the ridge vent cover is installed. But if you know how to remove your ridge vent cover, then by all means, you will certainly be able to install our Solar metal RidgeBlaster on your roof.
