Reliable and Experienced

Since  1996, we are continually provided you with top of the line gable vents  and other aluminum products and building supplies.  By hiring retired  contractors, we are kept up to date on the newest issues you experience  on the job site.  Our team has the installation knowledge to build you a  stronger gable vent and to ease your worries about half round window  trim.
Although we  have many machines to do a lot of the manufacturing for us, we still use  reliable sheet metal workers to ensure the gable vent you order will be  up to your standards.  Most of our dedicated team have been in the  industry for 20 plus years and are very pleased when you send in your  project pictures of your combined work.
So,  even though these gable vents have been around for some time, the  process of manufacturing them can change as new technology becomes  available.  But, we will never sacrifice quality for price. 
Once you install your gable vent louver,
It should last a lifetime, no less.

Quality Products
We stay up to date on all technological advances of a better gable vent.   We want you to have the best and strongest gable vent possible.  But we don't stop there.
When  you buy your louver gable vent from our building supplies, your order is processed and given to the shop  foreman.  He deals out the orders to the specialist best suited for your  product.  This lessens the chance of a miss made vent.  Once the  louvered gable vent is ready, it goes to quality control.
Each  and every gable vent is checked for measures, clean appearance and much  more before shipping.  We have a rigorous quality control team that  will not stamp a gable vent with the name unless it passes the tests. 
To protect the gable vents from damage in shipping, they are wrapped with low friction plastic and crated for their size. 
With the best record of safe delivery, Fed Ex will deliver your gable vents to your job or doorstep.

Track vs Rail System

Most all vent manufacturers are still using the track system where the vent louvers get cut straight off and slid into the track.  This system was great for then.  But this is now.  We developed a rail system to lock the louver ends around.  It gives the louvers greater strength and locks them into place in case the pop rivet ever gives way.

Flange Options

How about 4 flange options for your gable vent?

1. No flange as shown in the picture is great for sliding into a brick opening.

2. Front flange is the most commonly used on a gable vent because it works with most installs.

3. Back flange is perfect if your gable vent is going on a stucco wall.

4. J channel flange is common for siding applications.

Wind Shear Buffer

Wind shear can vibrate the louvers and cause the ends to wiggle till the pop rivet has enough space to pop out of the gable vent.  

By adding the line of liquid vinyl to the rail system, the louver ends do not vibrate. This adds many years to the life of your gable vent.  

This technology upgrade is just to ensure your louvered gable vent does last a lifetime.

Pop Rivets

So, why pop rivets instead of just stapling the metal to a wood frame?

Obviously the aluminum frame will last longer and the aluminum pop rivets will also.  Staples used on wood will rust our and fall apart.  

No deserving gable vent will be manufactured on a wood frame.

4 Fold Louvers

If you have ever ordered vent gable louvers from another place, you will immediately notice the weight difference in their vent and ours.  This is because we use more aluminum in our louvered vents.  On the bottom of the louver you will find four folds of the product.  And on the back there is a double hem.

How To Measure

If you can get to the opening to measure, this is the best way.  Measure straight across the bottom of the opening and then right up the middle.  These are the only two measures needed to order your gable vent.  If you cannot get to the opening and have to measure the vent, call us with those measures.  We have programs to determine the opening size.
