Replacement Stainless Steel Foundation Vent
Screen for Poured-in-Place Plastic Vent Units
Many foundations that have been built since the mid 70s have poured-in-place double screen plastic vent units. Some of these units originally had plastic flaps that could be shut during the winter season. The inside dimensions plastic to plastic at the very front of the vent measures 15 7/8" in width and 7 1/4" in height.
Our do-it-yourself kit is the ultimate solution for replacing foundation vent screens. Kits include precut stainless steel screen, cleaning brush, disposable Vulkem cartridge tip attachment, miscellaneous temporary installation accessories and detailed step by step installation instructions for replacement of the existing screen.
Installation can be performed from the outside if access to the vent is unobstructed, otherwise the screens will have to be replaced from the crawl space side of the foundation. You will need Vulkem 116 Polyurethane Sealant in a color to match that of your plastic vents, caulking gun, household cleaner, and in addition, a hot melt glue gun if the work is to be performed from the crawl space side.
Please note that as the Vulkem cures the disposable tip will be rendered useless. Most likely you will be able to salvage any remaining Vulkem for a month, but you will need to purchase additional Disposable Vulkem Cartridge Tip Attachments if you do not intend to install all of the vents on the same day.
