Have a soffett vent question

Posted by Moderator, Steve on March 25th, 2002 02:04 PM

Going out on a job in the morning installing 60 soffett vents around the home. This weekend I built me a jig to cut the hole enough so that the screws would be in good sound wood.

Then I did some thinking and came up with a logical question. The vent has louvers, which way do the louvers face? I did a quick walk through the neighbor hood and found them facing every different direction and one house had the vents all facing different directions.

I scratched my chin and found that there was not a standard. I did not like the louvers facing the street side as you can walk by the house and see the louvers when facing you, but then I thought that this would be the max in venting.

Now, I am completely confused. Which is the proper way to face the louvers?

What a dumb question, but really there must be a standard or rule of thumb. I would hate to install 60 and have some fanatic say they wanted them the other direction.

Any advice and rationale of being that way.

Jason, this may be in your field.
