A: Thank you for your interest in Builders Edge. Our hooded vents are a one piece mold, so unfortunately you cannot just remove the face of the vent. Also, all of our vents come on a nailing flange that should be installed under the siding. If you need new flaps please call customer service at 1-800-969-7245 and we can order replacement flaps.
A: Thank you for your interest in Builders Edge. The vent does not include a screen or animal guard. We do offer both the animal guard and screen for the 4" hooded vent, those can be purchased thru home depot as well.
A: The exhaust flap stays sealed when its not in use.
