Gable Louver Vent

Wondering what would be the easiest and/or quickest way to cut a hole in my gable to receive a louver vent? I will be building the vent myself out of cedar.

Re: Gable Louver Vent

You provide no info about your exterior and your attic framing, but cutting for a vent is very simple, in most cases.

Go in the attic to check if it's possible to cut and if you need to do some framing modifications. After you cut and frame around the cut, insert and secure your home made vent, seal with window flashing paper - just like around a window or door. Then finish the exterior.

These vents work great in pairs.
