Traditional Vent Guards

  •   Plastic vent covers deteriorate from UV rays.
  •   Cross bars block lint at a rapid rate, making the dryer vent far less efficient.
  •   Plastic materials are susceptible to critter entry.
  •   Accessible grates allow rain/snow to enter the covers which turns lint into a thick papier-mâché like barrier.
  •   Standard white plastic often does not match and creates a dull, unsightly finish over time.
  •   Standard sizes only cover 4" vents.
  •   Single mounting method required.
  •   Installs on limited amounts of siding materials.
  •   Plastic materials may fall apart upon re-installation.
  •   Unsightly vents remain visible.
  •   Softer plastics break, bend, warp, and crack over time.
  •   Cheaper solution that is often replaced.
