Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weyams Must be Painted
The vent is all plastic and requires painting which worked for me because when I made the install, we were having our house painted. The only issue would be that the outside frame that snaps on once the vent is installed does not sit flush against the house but it still has a good look. Easy to install with complete netting to keep bugs, spiders and birds outside. I used screws instead of nails if I needed access.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NewUser123 looks attractive, some install tips
This is a very easy install, but as another reviewer mentioned, you may have to enlarge the hole just a bit more than per the instructions. The instructions have you tracing the inside of the snap on trim ring as a template and cutting the siding hole on that line, however you need to cut not on the line but just on the outside of the line so the hole is about one eighth of an inch 1/8" wider in all directions because the inside lip of the trim ring must also fit into the hole in the siding and the vent is then inside the trim ring. I had the impression the trim ring is just flush mounted on the siding but it is more like an L shape, most of it is flush but the inside edge wraps into the hole. Overall, still very easy and looks great. If you get the paintable one, because this is a synthetic material not wood or metal, for best paint adhesion I recommend priming it lightly with an exterior acrylic latex before applying 2 thin finish coats, and wait overnight to cure before handling or you may have some installation scratches. The screen is ok, the louvers are big so don't know if birds will nest in there or not but the increased airflow is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobaloo Great materials and held paint well.
My home is 100 years old and it was time to update from the dreary colors of the day and step up to a more exciting color and in the process discovered that our vent was damaged beyond repair. I started my search for a replacement online and found the perfect product here. It's made of long lasting materials, was easy to install, easy to paint, and the screening is very sturdy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jepp Not bad but not the greatest good value
details make it sound better then it is. such as screen to protect from intruders, seems just like a regular window screen. but better quality then the cheaper all plastics type. Havent seen other ones but its better then the unit i replaced. We'll see how it holds up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shutterfly Fairly easy to install, took paint well
Nice size, easily installed from outside, took stain easily... Only issue was the very light wire mesh behind the loovers, would surely not be enough to keep out critters.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gonzo Right product, wrong color
It was the product I wanted and when I ordered it I ordered it in white paintable. I received a gray paintable which doesn't match the other exact gable so now I will definately have to paint it. Since my hardware store can't get it I was able to find it at Home Depot but at a higher price.
