Is the integrated, built-in end plug truly sealed from the weather?

The integrated end plugs of The Edge Vent terminate each end of the vent to help prevent weather infiltration. The end plug feature is essentially a vertical rib with a top edge that matches the contour of the vent’s curved, tapered profile. The top half of The Edge Vent rests on this rib in the assembly and provides a tight joint once the installation is complete. Additional weather protection for this joint is provided by the shingles which typically extend ½” to ¾” beyond the end plug of The Edge Vent at the gable end of a roof. It should be noted that the slot is to be terminated at least 6” inside of the gable end wall and The Edge Vent should be installed flush with the edge of the roof. For maximum roof deck protection, at the edge of the gable end, it is recommended that the roof deck be covered with underlayment beneath the vent.
