    The pre-painted white is typically what we would recommend, although the unfinished galvanized can also be painted over easily.

  2. Hi, I am drying to replace two (2) 6" bathroom exhaust vents. I would like to have a vent that has a move able flap that would allow for exhaust when required and drops closed when not in use thereby preventing humidity to go back into the bathroom. Is this the proper vent or do you have a better idea? Thanks

    The moveable flap you are looking for is what we call a damper, and this wall vent model does have a damper that is designed to open when exhausting and fall back closed when not in use.

    Yes.

  8. I have a basement bathroom that currently has an old NUTONE 8060 vent fan to the outside cinderblock NUTONE wall vent (~2.5' away). The vent opening is 9". Perhaps this is an old standard that is no longer used? I wish to keep the fan, to keep the bath historically accurate. Do you recommend reducing, increasing, or is it an option that I don't see in the drop-down list?

    We would recommend asking the fans manufacturer which would be better for this application - typically, you would not want to reduce this down, as this could strain the fan. We do not currently manufacture a 9" wall vent.

    These vents will typically ship UPS or FedEx Ground, which typically takes 1-5 business days transit time after they have been manufactured and have shipped, varying by location.

    This will depend on the strength of your bathroom fan, but in most cases this should be fine.

  14. I'm exhausting a down draft stove fan. Existing duct is 6" but not easily accessible for mating to the 8" tube off the back. Tight fit is not critical. Can I get just the box/damper/screen without the back tube or if not, can I cut it off flush?

    While we do not currently offer this vent without the 8-1/4" tube, this tube can be trimmed back or cut off entirely/made flush as needed without reducing the functionality of the hood, damper, and screen.

  16. Can the spring-loaded damper on the hooded wall vent be reversed so it can be used as an air intake? If not do you have anything similar for shed ventilation (500 cubic ft shed) that will be used in combination with an AC Infinity Airlift 10 shutter exhaust fan. Thank you

    The damper in the WVEB model cannot be reversed to function as an air intake. However, our RDWVG vent may work for you as it comes with a reversible backdraft damper.

    The damper in these vents will open to allow air flow as low as 5-15 CFM, so these should work fine with your fan.

  20. My crawl space mounted gas furnace exhausts through the brick wall via PVC pipe. Would this be appropriate if I cut the PVC flush with the wall and slipped this over the PVC? Looking for a more finished look.

    Typically the PVC pipe exhausting your furnace would not be capped off this way, so we would not recommend adding a wall cap to this piped exhaust application.

  22. I have a contoured exterior wall and the Famco hooded wall vent will not sit flush on the wall. Do you sell a mounting block or is your product best suited for new construction (before the siding is installed)?

    This vent is typically installed beneath the siding, you may have to remove or trim a small section of siding to get the vent to sit flush against the wall, depending on the type of siding you have. We do not sell mounting blacks for our wall vents.

    The screen was torn at the crease was able to fold it again and firm up tube corner. Other than that a very nice vent, fit well and trims our nice.

  2. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Screen not secured well.

    High quality product. Good delivery time.

  5. Frank Garcia (verified owner)

  6. Richard Duwe (verified owner)

    Well constructed just not sure I am going to install.

  7. Vince Lin (verified owner)

    Product appears to be of nice quality. I did receive the item and there were a few blemishes in the black paint. However, will not be noticeable once installed on the home.

    It is worth noting that the black finish does not resemble the photo. I was under the impression that the finish would be matte powder coat and it is actually more of a semi-gloss or satin finish.

  8. Ronald (verified owner)

    Product is much superior to models that I have looked at in the local stores and other sources on line. The damper functions well. The product could be improved with a better lip or notch to hold the screen in place.

  9. Samuel (verified owner)

  10. Jerry Wallace (verified owner)

    The wire screen is not attached to the unit. The first time a bird lands on it will be pushed back into the unit, which will cause the flapper to become forced shut or open. Or, the screen would fall to the ground. Not good events.

    Four, or better six, pop rivits would secure the screen in place. I noted use of pop rivits in construction of the unit. Seems like fairly quick and inexpensive solution to a problem that would render unit useless to me.
    Hope this helps.

    Came out great, the only problem was one of the rivets coming undone in shipping.

  12. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Product is fine. Hood material seems a bit light guage….bent easy when pushing into place. Screen material does not fit well….sides are wide open and don’t mimic the shape of the hood.

  13. GERALD Greenman (verified owner)

    Delivery was longer than anticipated

  14. Mike (verified owner)

    Would like hemmed edges on the side pieces.

    Great product….pricey….but all us smart fabricators know “you get what ya pay for”!

  19. Mike Lenox (verified owner)

    When received, screen was “popped” in so vent would not open. I knew to check it. Others might not. Easy to correct it. Otherwise, all good. Installed and works well.
