3 Reasons To Install Square Gable Vents On Your Home

Home & Garden Blog

If you look at some of the homes in your neighborhood and elsewhere throughout your area, you might notice small, square-shaped vents near the tops of the homes. If your home does not have these, then you should know that they can be a great investment. These are a few reasons to install these vents on your home.

1. They're Affordable

For one thing, if you're on a budget when it comes to making renovations to your home, then you might be unsure of whether or not you can afford square gable vents. The good news is that you can often buy these vents from some of the top manufacturers without having to spend a lot of money. The cost of the vents should be fairly negligible, so the main thing that you have to worry about is the cost of installation. You might find that this is a job that you can take on by yourself. If you're not someone who is into do-it-yourself projects around the house, then you may still want to hire a professional. Even though this will add to the cost, you will probably still find that installing square gable vents on your home isn't a very expensive project, particularly if you shop around for a professional who will do it for an affordable price.

2. They Provide Better Ventilation

Keeping your attic properly ventilated is important for a few reasons. It can help keep your attic from getting too hot during the summer, which can even help you keep the rest of your home a bit cooler without having to run the air conditioning system as much. It can also be a big help with preventing mold and mildew growth, which can destroy things that are stored in your attic and could cause serious property damage in the attic and elsewhere in your home.

3. They're Decorative

Lastly, you should consider the fact that square gable vents can actually be quite decorative and can be the perfect way to add a little something extra to the look of your home. They come in different decorative styles, so you should be able to find vents that will look good on your home, regardless of its style and color. This is a good way to add a boost of curb appeal and to break up a boring look on your home.

As you can see, square gable vents can be a fantastic addition to your home, if you don't have them already. If you shop around for square gable vents and do your research about installing them yourself, or if you work with a professional, you are sure to find that it's a great project to tackle.
