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.
