Using an existing opening

Using an existing opening avoids the need for new framing. This is a good option in homes with masonry exteriors, which are difficult to alter. Order a replacement unit that is 1″ narrower and ½” shorter than the rough opening.

Framing a new opening

Framing a new opening is the only solution when you’re installing a window or door where none existed or when you’re replacing a unit with one that is much larger.

Enlarging an existing opening

Enlarging an existing opening simplifies the framing. In many cases, you can use an existing king stud and jack stud to form one side of the new opening.

Heat Register

Adjust the height of your baseboard to completely surround the heat register opening. Then cut a pocket out of the base for the heat register to slide into. Install the base shoe and cap trim molding continuously across the edges of the baseboard.

Taller Backer Block

Install a taller backer block to encompass larger register openings. Cut a hole the same size as the duct opening in the backer block and cover the edges of the plywood with cap rail, mitering the rail at the corners. Butt the base molding into the sides of the register. Cut and install returns for the base shoe flush with the ends of the register.

Wooden Heat Register

Install a wooden heat register for a less noticeable appearance. Wooden registers can be finished to match your trim and are available through most hardwood floor retailers. Butt the base molding into the ends of the register cover and bevel the front edges of the base shoe to match the depth of the register.
