Foundation Vent Covers – Important Things To Know
Outline of Foundation Vent Covers Important Things To Know:
- Southern Location Foundation Vent Cover Installation – Southern Locations where it seldom freezes just need a foundation vent cover with a fiber glass mesh screen on the back to keep insects and varmints out.
Before and After – Southern Locations do not need a blocking plate in the winter months to seal off the foundation vent cover completely as they do in the northern states. This installation only needed the fiber glass screen mesh and our Craftsman Style Arts and Crafts Decorative Foundation Vent Cover Grille #RR-209 08×08 which has a total frame size of 10″ x 10″. Love the transformation.
In the past, foundation vents have been an after thought, usually left up to the mason building the foundation with no regard to the overall appearance of the house. In this case, leftover wire from the foundation stucco was used. Twenty years later, the current homeowner removed it and installed our Craftsman style grille with fiber glass mesh on the back. The mesh on the back actually helps to block the view into the crawl space. Now their patio looks great. Details matter.
