Wood gable vents are inexpensive to install but they are pricier than those made of vinyl. In addition to the price you may look at the wooden gable vents and wonder if their durability is any better than that of their vinyl competitors. So, should you choose wood gable vents over vinyl? Contractors, and consumers alike, believe that you should.
Once you have made the decision to install gable vents made of wood what else should you consider? Well, you need to consider the style of your home. View your home from street level; what you see is the first impression of what others see as well. An advantage to installing wooden gable vents is that they will not cause degradation to the value of your home. In comparison, materials such as plastic or faux wood will make your home look less valuable.
