Aluminum undereave vent residue
 
4 Attachment(s)
I installed multiple aluminum Air Vent 16"x4" vents over my 2" soffit holes about 6 months ago. I recently noticed an odd residue which I thought was bird poop, but upon closer inspection appears to be some type of oxidation or salt buildup. I do live in a tropical and humid setting, and was slightly concerned that this could be indicative of a bigger problem. Anyone experience or seen this before?

wtf...how did you even see that? It's probably dust. If you're really concerned, poke your head up in the attic.

Ok we give up. Please go back and add your location to your profile.
Just go to Quick links and add it.

Why didnt you cut open the whole area under the grille? The holes are choking off your airflow to zip.

+1 i would have cut it larger.

Please paint them white :)

Is it oily to the touch ?
