Decorative Gable Vents

A decorative gable vent is only 1" thick so it can mount inside a wall or outside.  It is usually used to cover up an old gable vent or out-of-use window. 

To prevent the old vent from ghosting through the new one, you my wish to paint your existing vent black before instaling the new one.

The top caps of a decorative vent are designed as separate mounts to help with the install process.

The first thing to do is remove the caps.  They will slide off in a downward motion.

 

 You will line these caps under your overhang and attach them securly to the wall or overhang.  The vent will then slide back into the caps and line up with the bottom of the caps or level with the siding. 

Now, you will notice the pre drilled grommets inside the bottom of the vent.

 Using a shaft on your drill will prevent marring while applying a screw to each provided hole.

The drip pan is optional.  It is usually used where there are high water risks, like coastal regions or if there is no old vent.

 It is easier to use a drip pan if you have access to your attic.  Just snap the drip pan into the back of the vent and trim the edges as needed. On larger drip pans, you may wish to attach the edges to the framing in the attic to prevent drooping over time.

 

 Or, you can watch an actual install
