Best Foundation Vent Covers – Customer Images
Beaux-Arts Classic Products makes the best foundation vent covers. There is no other foundation vent cover that offers an attractive architectural addition to your home plus functional seasonal control. Our functional work of art is maintenance free. Cast in exterior urethane resin and cold cast finishes that will endure the test of time.
We love to receive customer images and this beautiful home demonstrates what a difference it makes to add attractive foundation vent covers. In this case, the home owner, converted to an encapsulated crawl space, where the foundation was sealed off and drains and a dehumidifier were installed to remove the moisture. Encapsulation is the latest concept in controlling dampness and moisture under houses. So this time our Louis XIV foundation vents were selected to cover and seal off 18 16″ x 8″ port holes in the brick, based solely on their looks. It was helpful that we offer eight different finishes, including Red Brick. Rubbed Bronze, Old Wood and Aged Copper. They chose copper, because they will soon replace their gutter and downspouts with copper ones.
Even though this home does not require seasonal changes for the crawl space vent covers our foundation vent covers offer easy removal of the decorative grille to change from the screen mesh, which is used in the spring, summer and fall, to the blocking plate to seal out the cold air in the winter months. Anyone who has experienced frozen pipes knows the importance of blocking out the cold air in areas of the country with severe winters. However, for this house the blocking plates will be permanently in place as part of the crawl space encapsulation.
The main function of these eighteen Louis XIV Style foundation vents is to compliment the traditional architecture of this elegant home, which they do superbly. But, how do you seal up eighteen rather large holes in the exterior of your brick home, after you convert to encapsulation? One alternative would be to have the brick mason return and seal with the same brick. Unfortunately, that never looks as good as the rest of the wall. Maybe the mason could brick it up in a herringbone pattern. The other choices are not much better such as patch with cement, cover with plywood, or plug up the existing grilles from behind. In this situation, I think you will agree, that using Beaux-Arts Classic Products decorative crawl space vent covers is the perfect solution to sealing the foundation ports after encapsulating your crawl space. As you can see this is a grand house, and the foundation vents add to its stature and market value as well.
Our foundation vent covers come in 8 beautiful finishes appropriate for exterior application. The Aged Copper finish is perfect with the brick exterior.
