Where To Find 8' X 20" Soffit Vents


I'm painting a rent house, but the soffit vents really need to be replaced, the problem (after removing one and tearing it up getting it out), they are 8" x 20" instead of the "standard" 8 x 16,,
I can't find the 20" length anywhere, any ideas?

thanks

go to www.mcnichols.com - they sell perforated metal and can cut it to any size you need. Fabricate your own vent covers.

Check around local lumber yards. I've found in the past, that if i encounter a weird mesurement of certain type of old wood that needs to be replaced on the house a local distributer will carry it. The only problem is you usally have to dig deep to turn up that wood.

I guess you've got to applaud a first time poster using the search function. But to post his phone number in an open forum like this, isn't very smart.
