My hardwood floor will be removed and new engineered wood will be installed.
- I have 4×10 registers that are regular registers and you can either buy them or build them yourself, so those are not a challenge.
- I have 2 air returns 29”x6” that will be a challenge to build because they are large and there are only two of them on the upper floor.
I was watching some videos and the wood flush mount registers seem to introduce a problem when compared with the regular registers and that is because the grates need to be thicker otherwise they will collapse when you step on them. If you make them thicker that the metal or plastic ones that will reduce the airflow.
I think the problem is going to be even bigger for the air returns when these are big like the ones I have this register which is 29"x6"
Did anyone of you guys deal with this? What was the solution?
