Builders Edge Utility Vents are durable, maintenance-free, U.V. stabilized and constructed with color molded-through so they won't scratch, flake, or fade. Available in a wide range of colors to match your siding manufacturer or a Paintable (030) option to easily match your home. All of our Utility Vents also include a limited lifetime warranty. Made in the USA.
The foundation Vents on my home are old and in need of replacement. I went to home depot and looked at the foundation vents that they had and they were the automatic vents like I had only these were black. The salesman stated I could go on line and order them in different colors. I found a color that matched nicely with my home, but when the vents arrived they were poorly manufactured, did not have the automatic vent openings and were only about 15/16 of an inch thick without any mounting points. They appear to be made for a wooden foundation cover where you can staple these things in place. They are definately not made to be inserted into the opening in a foundation block. Not only that but some of the tabs that I think you are supposed to staple to are broken off. I plan on taking these back to Home Depot and please note they are the only ones available on the Home depot web page listed as foundation vents.

We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with our product. Our foundation vents have never been automatic. The vent you looked at in store was not a Builders Edge product. Home Depot store do not stock this product. We have different models ones for block and others for remodeling for siding application. The vent you purchase is NOT for block installation. Again we are sorry that you were under the belief that the vent you looked at in the store was the same as this one.
Review 2 for 9.375 in. x 18 in. Foundation Vent with Ring for Remodeling, #078-Wineberry-DISCONTINUED
I was so looking forward to these as they match my trim but though they are a beautiful color, they are flimsy and cheaply made. The louvers are so thin, that when in the "closed" position I suspect there is almost as much air flow as when in the "open" position. I will be returning this. Very sad as I was so looking forward to vent covers that matched.
