Hinged Gable Vents
Attic ventilation serves two primary purposes: removing attic heat during hot weather and removing attic moisture during cold weather.
Attic ventilation is achieved through a proper balance of intake vents (soffit vents) and exhaust vents (gable vents). A balanced configuration of soffit vents and gable vents, sometimes called gable vent covers or attic vent covers, work together as a system to allow air to move freely through the attic. Outside air is drawn into the attic through the intake vents forcing the warm moist air out through the gable vents.
Why does this matter?
Because proper attic ventilation will help protect your home year round and promote a healthy roof.
During the summer months heat build up in the attic can create undesirable conditions. Reducing the excess attic heat will mitigate these circumstances.
Attic Vent Calculation: The Uniform Building Code specifies the net free ventilation area required for attics. Some jurisdictions may have more stringent codes in place. Be sure to check with your local building officials to determine your requirements.
Once the required Net Free Area has been calculated use our NFA Chart (Net Free Area) to determine the correct quantity and size gable vents for your attic.

8/06/19 - Dear Cari,
I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful service. When I placed a verbal order over the phone, the person taking the order was professional and understood what I needed. The item received is top quality and clearly constructed by craftsmen, and is 100 times better than the absolute junk "vents" (stamped plastic or improperly screened junk wood) which are available at the local big lumber stores. The louver installed easily and is worth the price and every penny paid. Cut hole, caulk periphery, and fasten securely. It immediately began to vent hot air with no chance of wasps or rodents getting in. A professional outcome. Regards. You may use this testimony as you see fit. Again, thank you!
