I'm having my ancient, octopus-looking, heating system replaced in a couple of weeks (hooray!), and have started looking for replacement iron (cast- or wrought-) louvered floor registers. The original registers are badly rusted and/or have broken louvers.
My problem is, I'm having trouble finding any that fit the openings in my floors. The openings in question range in size from 16.5"-16.75" x 14.5"-14.75".
To complicate matters, my house still has its original (c. 1926) fir hardwood floors, which would be difficult to match stock if I were to attempt to accommodate a smaller register and try to fill it in.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for where I may be able to locate these? The largest I've been able to locate is 12x14 (from Signature Hardware).
Many thanks in advance!
