The picture shows what can happen to a roof-mounted clothes dryer vent screen after just 8 months. It was located in the Sun City Del Webb Community. The roof vent was installed when the roof was re-shingled and was discovered during the homeowner’s annual dryer duct cleaning service. We recommend that all new installations of roof-mounted dryer vents do not include a screen at termination. Current building codes prohibit such installations.
Remember, any dryer vent should be inspected at least once a year for blockage, proper operation and good airflow.
The link below is one option to deter pests from entering the roof-mounted dryer duct without the use of a screen.
