Roof vent cover

    Very random question, but I am trying to identify the size or brand of a roof vent cover.

    I noticed a beam of light coming in to the attic, and on closer inspection realised the cover had come off one of the vents in the roof. I want to get a new one, but (a) am not sure if there is just a standard size and fit and (b) am not sure who I should get to do it, if not doing it myself - a roofer?

    Any advice on replacing it would be appreciated.

    Photos of the roof here:

    Standard vent cap.
    I’d go to one of the big suppliers and show the photo.

    Thanks Gumbo - Are the big suppliers someone like Screwfix? Or a Builders Providers?

    Screwfix is like Argos.
    Your just buying from a book and the guys just get it from inventory.

    Go to the likes of Chadwicks, Heiton Buckley’s, The Grange or other builders providers.

    In the end, I talked to a builders providers, who referred me to a roofing supply company (commercial), who referred me to another roofing supply company (domestic), who referred me to a roofer, who identified it as a Klober Universal 20 K Roof Tile Vent, and who is coming out tomorrow to replace it.

    Result!
