“I am in the middle of a HUGE complete outdoor landscaping makeover, including flagstone deck installation. My wife and contractor love these crawl space vent covers. Frankly I view them as I would a fine piece of art inside the house. They definitely put the bow on the box so to speak.” – B. Smith

This photo does not do justice to its beauty. Thank you! All the best to you and your team.” Marylou, Tennessee
Add Classical Style to Foundation Vent Covers & Crawl Space Foundation Vent Covers
When it comes to outdoor landscaping and your home’s exterior architectural details, don’t neglect the foundation vent covers of your home. A Beaux-Arts Classic Product foundation vent cover is a functional work of art that adds beauty and functionality. They come with a blocking plate and screen mesh to accommodate the change in seasons. Our crawl space vent covers are perfect for encapsulated foundation crawl space vents.
Our decorative foundation vent covers are available in three timeless styles; Louis XIV, Empire and Arts and Crafts Styles and 12 finishes. They fit in the standard 16” X 8” concrete block crawl space vent opening you’ll see on the foundation of many homes.
Made to order, this vent cover consists of two separate parts: the frame, which is attached to the foundation, and the grille, which is removable. Both are cast from an exterior grade urethane resin that won’t rot, rust, corrode or grow mold.
Foundation Vent Covers Designed for All Seasons
Rain, shine, wind or snow, these handsome foundation vent covers function in any season. Easily adjust it whether you want to seal off crawl spaces in the winter or use the screen mesh to ventilate them in the summer. Remove the grille by unscrewing four knurled knobs, so that either a sealing/blocking plate or a fiberglass screen mesh can be inserted behind it.
Sealed Foundation Vent Covers for Encapsulated Foundations
We are the only company which offers excellent performance and a handsome alternative for Encapsulated Foundations. Over the last 10 years builders and architects are recommending a new approach for crawl spaces, encapsulating the foundation with heavy plastic sheeting to prevent the moisture from ever getting into the crawlspace to begin with. Encapsulation also includes a drainage system that takes water away from the foundation as well as a powerful dehumidifier that controls the humidity especially during hot summers and rainy seasons. The old foundation ports or vent holes are also sealed and covered on the inside with heavy plastic sheeting.
Many homeowners are finding out that their old crawl space vents are just covered with plywood or a cheep plastic cover, which ruins the look of their homes from the outside. In some cases, they are left to figure out on their own what to do about the old vent holes. The encapsulation industry really has no good solutions. If, for instance, the foundation has a brick front, the home owner has to hire a brick mason to fill in the old port holes. Often the brick is hard to match to the rest of the foundation, and looks like a patch job. After spending $25,000 and up for encapsulating their foundations, home owners are left with several big eye sores on three sides of their crawl space. How to make the foundation look good was something they never thought about. The foundation vent hole is a big problem after encapsulation. Since we make the only high end looking foundation grille available anywhere, our foundation grilles restore the outside of homes in a manner the homeowner can be proud of.
Functional and Reliable
With this unique crawl space vent cover, enjoy both form and function. The homeowner can service the vent from the outside of the house without having to crawl into the crawl space. Each grille provides 73 square inches of ventilation with the fiberglass screen mesh installed. All installation hardware, plus the sealer/blocking plate and fiberglass screen mesh is included with the cover.
The decorative foundation vent cover was designed using historic masters. These were scanned and digitized to create a functional and attractive architectural feature replacing standard industrial foundation vent covers.
Simple Installation, Easy Maintenance
Easy to install in new construction and existing structures, this foundation vent cover is a dream for homeowners and contractors. It comes with pre-drilled screw holes and all necessary hardware, which matches the color and style of your cover. For maintenance, simply wipe it down when it is dirty. The vent cover is designed to withstand all weather.
Custom Design & Finish
Since each vent is made to order, you can custom design yours to match your home’s unique aesthetics. First, choose from the classic Louis XIV, Empire or Arts and Crafts Designs. Then, pick the desired color.
Metallic powder options:
- Rubbed bronze
- Dark bronze
- Antique brass
- Aged copper
- Chinese red
- Antique cherry
- Umber gold
Finishes start with a thin plate of either a metallic powder or a pigment. During the casting process, the powder or pigment bond to the resin. This is otherwise known as a “cold-fusion” process that is similar to powder coating. However, it uses a chemical bonding process instead of an electromagnetic charge to seal the finish.
After the bonding is complete, we apply aging glazes or painted highlights to achieve the particular style of each finish. Not only does this unique process create a beautiful faux finish, but it will last for many years to come. The stunning architectural details add an enviable finishing touch to your exterior.
