In this townhouse off of New Garden Rd we found a pretty bad situation. The original dryer vent was plastic and shared a roof jack with a bathroom vent. The dryer vent was so clogged up it actually started to overflow into the bathroom! We were able to replace this with rigid piping and installed a dedicated roof jack for the dryer. The system is now safe and efficient!
Shame on the installer
A dryer vent should never share a jack with another vent. The dryer vent was so clogged it actually started to drop lint into the bathroom fan! This is not up to code and very unsafe.
A look inside the plastic venting.

Clogged at the roof
When we cut out the sheet rock behind the dryer we found the plastic venting had burst and dumped lint all inside the wall. We were able to extract all of the lint and cleaned everything up.
We cleaned up the mess in the laundry room and installed a flush mount dryer box.
Clean & Simple
Our new piping taped and secured. This is a simple and efficient system that is easy to maintain.
The Dryer Jack is specially designed for dryer exhaust. It creates zero airflow restriction, allows lint to pass through the system and has a baffle to keep critters out. This style jack is required by current building codes and is all we use.
