When A Dryer Vents Through The Roof

Published

on

I notice it all the time, and for about 20 years now. Dryers that went through the roof.

If you ask me, it’s not really a smart installation.

And problems are inherent for almost any homeowner with dryers that went through the roof.

Builders will say it isn’t a challenge because clogs happen right behind the dryer, don’t you know.

Well, clogs might develop there, however, for the absolute, most part probably the most dangerous place to clog is on the roof.

And that’s the MOST FREQUENT place dryer vent clogged. I’ve lots of photos showing completely clogged dryer vents at the roof line.

The dryer vent with this house passes through the roof just above the left side of the left window for the reason that photo.

Look at what’s outside.

Can there be use of the roof from there?

No. Unless a ladder could be put there with legs which can be different length side to side.

I’ve never seen one of those worcester ma roofing co.

From outside your house the red arrow indicates where this dryer vent exits the roof.

 

That roof is three stories high.

Most homeowners don’t have ladders that tall.

And if one hires an expert to increase there, the height demands a couple to control the ladder safely.

Which will get expensive to truly have the dryer vent cleaned regularly!

This is actually the other problem.

Dryer vents look mostly like this.

Not only may be the vent difficult to get to, it is so high and far it’s hard to see when it clogs.

This is actually the view you see from the ground. With a binoculars one could easily get a close enough view to see it. But even then, it’s hard to inform when it needs to be cleaned.

But go through the other problem. When it snows deeply the dryer vent is covered and blocked!

 

This isn’t an intelligent installation for so many reasons!

My recommendation: dryer vents are easily clogged and pose dangers once they do. Tens of thousands of dryer fires happen every year due to clogging and overheating. I’ve understood that 5% of household fire deaths happen as a result of dryers. So maintenance is critical! How often do the vents must be cleaned? Once they clog! Typically annually, but that depends on the family, washing habits and kind of clothing a lot of the family wears. Don’t wreck havoc on Mother Nature. She always wins in the end.
