Can I install flush floor vents on my own?
Are you handy? Do you plan to install your tile on your own?
if not, we suggest you leave it to a pro!
Your contractor or "tile guy" will find this process super easy!
Typically floor vent openings are either 4"x10" or 3" x 10"
Standard plastic or metal covers sit on top of hole in your floor.
Our Vents are made to match and sit flush with your flooring. We cut our vents larger then the standard hole sizes. It allows the vent cover to rest on the subflooring, like your flooring.
If you have ducting that is 3x10, when you tile your flooring, leave the hole 4x11 instead and your new vent will fit perfectly.
If your duct work is 4x10 - when you tile your flooring leave the whole 5x11 instead.
Can I install a Cold Air Return Grille on my own?
Are you handy? Installing Flush Cold air returns is easy, but having them look flawless really depends on your ability to mud + sand like a pro.
Using a knife of some sort, extend the standard hole/opening in your wall to fit the dimensions of the Vent cover you've purchased, either small or large.
Next, pop out the cover and screw the frame provided into the hole you've extended. The screw holes should line up with the frame.
Place the Vent cover and use drywall screws to attach it directly to the framing.
Then apply fancy tape (we recommend some sort) and mud, once dry, sand and repeat until you have a smooth finish.
