Are you suppose to see daylight inside your attic once roof vent cans are installed?

Roof vent cans were installed, now it can daylight filtering in beneath the newly installed vent can. Should that happen?

You should not be able to see directly outside, but there will normally (except with baffled caps used in frequent blowing snow or rain country) be "daylight" - not direct sunlight - shining into the can. Some models actually do have bands or stripes of daylight showing around the top part of the inside - coming in through angled louvers.

If you mean there is actually sunlight - like sunbeams - showing on the walls or floor of the attic coming in through the can, I would say that sounds a lit light on baffling to keep out blowing rain.

Not a problem unless blowing rain or snow starts coming in there.
