My current one is dry rotted and needs replaced.
I bought just the plastic ouside piece that is louvered without paying attention that the old one is more of a hood with a flap insde.
Anyway, would it be best to go back to the hooded kind to keep out rain and for cleaning?

Anyone?
I found out that the old vent is one piece, so I may take the cover back and get one that has the pie and all.
Oh, anyone know about those Deflecto Ultra Seal canister type vents?
From what I read, they let less air in from outside.
True?

I had a louvered kind when I bought the house and in short order found that 2 of the 3 louvers would stick open during the winter letting small rodents in.

I replaced it with a flapper kind the following spring.

YMMV.

This. You can paint it to match your house. It is very, very good at preventing drafts.

Local Ace has the Deflecto brand for $26.
I have aluminum siding, so does it screw to the outside, or do I need to cut the siding and slide it under?

I replaced mine when my house got resided with vinyl. I have it mounted on a block with a j-channel trim kit around it.
