Dryer Vent Reviews

Custom Home Builder
I build custom homes, and this dryer wall vent complements my homes. A very classic style that is far better looking and functional than any of the big store products. Will install one in all of my homes.

I have been totally frustrated with wall vents that don't close, the damper hangs open constantly. I installed one of these to exhaust a Panasonic bathroom exhaust fan and it works perfectly. I bought another to replace my dryer vent. A simple concept that just works. I wish these were available in more sizes and colors and materials. I have started using these on commercial projects.

The vent seems to be just what I wanted. No screen to clog with lint and make the dryer overheat.
Good design.

This was very easy to install and way better than any plastic dryer vent. Looks like it should hold up for years to come.

The flush mount dryer metal wall vent is a gem. I have it installed on two dryers and a Panasonic Bathroom fan, FV-11VQ3, the vent works quite well.

I am very happy with this product. It was easy to install and looks great. More importantly, it has noticeably improved the efficiency of our dryer. The Dryerbox staff was extremely helpful in answering questions that I had prior to purchasing.

I had to replace two wall vents after squirrels chewed through the original plastic ones and started nesting in the ductwork. The replacement was simple and the vents work really well. I'm confident this is the last time squirrels will be getting in through those ducts.

Simply a Great Product, I was really tired of having to constantly replace this wall vent with Made In China !$^@%. It's a waste of my money and time. Finally, a Made in The USA Product that will last.

Well made, ingenious yet simple design is effective at keeping critters out, great value. Easy to install. Your installation video was quite helpful! Really should be in all construction supply stores for new installations as well as for replacements.

The magnetic flapper dryer vent worked far better than the old plastic louvered grille. The plastic failed in sunlight and was brittle and broke when cleaned. The new square vent design looks much better. I will get this vent grill again when I need one.

We recommend the Dryer Wall Vent with magnetic closures for long lasting peace of mind. The door stays closed when the dryer is not running. This makes it so the birds and rodents don't get in the vent. It's heavy duty, accents the home's exterior and provides the ultimate protection.

I used four of these wall vents on a remodel I am doing right now. Three for bathroom exhaust fans and one for the dryer. I remodel and build custom homes and often have to replace dented aluminum vents or broken plastic vents that are damaged by the sun or other means. These wall vents are the perfect solution for a long lasting vent cover. I expect it will last 40 to 50 years. Thank you. I like making our clients' homes maintenance free.

I have installed the Dryerbox ® and the Dryer Wall Vent. These are by far the best products on the market. I would have liked another color on the vent but a little spray can will do. Easy to install and excellent product. THANKS.

Always hated the ugly vent on a very visible section of my house. Saw this in a magazine and am very happy with the quality of the vent. The last wall vent I will need for my house. Easy to install and seals great when not in use.

Thank you for a reasonably priced, well-made product. I too was tired of constantly replacing flimsy vent covers that did not close tightly. The dryer vent works perfectly. The one for the bathroom vent needed something to lessen the attraction of the magnets as the blower did not have the strength to break the seal. A piece of tape was all it took and it now works perfectly also.

I was looking for a wall vent which would last a lifetime (as opposed to the plastic vents available at the hardware stores). This product exceeded all my expectations. It is extremely sturdy and the magnetic closure mechanism is ingenious. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

I bought one for my dryer and one for my bathroom exhaust fan. They work better than expected. Well worth their money. Simple design and no back pressure. These vents put the plastic ones to shame! I do not know why plastic vents are even allowed to be made, 2-3 years they fall apart from sun exposure unlike these steel ones! Great product!

Simple, low profile, not unsightly. Rugged, well made. Absolute function. Allows cleaning without removal or dis-assembly. Hands down, better than the cheap plastic discount versions.

The Dryer Wall Vent is well constructed and operates smoothly. I installed two in the attic gable, one for each bathroom vent fan on the second floor of our home. I recommend use with 8" aluminum siding. The vent fits flush on a single panel of aluminum and seals with a minimum of caulk around the wall cutout. Sweet!

In the 15 years we've lived in our house, I've replaced the dryer vent at least three times. The aluminum ones are thin stock, cheap and fall apart. The plastic ones get brittle and fall apart because of the heat and cold, winter and summer. Gone are the heavy galvanized metal ones they used to sell. But this one is very nice: well made out of a decent thickness of powder coated steel. I don't foresee replacing this vent cover in my lifetime. The price is good and I didn't mind paying a little more for UPS to deliver it.

Easily the best and most attractive and durable unit on the market. And since it blows outward instead of downward, it has an unimpeded airflow and no lint collection near the vent. The lack of bird screens that inevitably clog is a major plus. Very reasonable price for the quality and longevity of the product.

Best dryer vent on the market. Our old vent opened to only 30 degrees with the dryer on; which is typical. At 30 degrees, the dryer was running inefficiently. The Dryer Wall Vent opens to 45 degrees when our Maytag dryer is on, and the sides of the vent flap are not blocked as with other vents, so there's a lot less air resistance. As a result, the clothes dry quicker -- maybe 10-15 minutes less time per load than before. This will save electricity and the dryer will last longer; i.e., this thing will pay for itself. The device is very well made - 26 gauge steel (much heavier than typical steel ducts or other dryer vents) with a high quality powder coat. There are two 1/2" x 1/2" stick-on magnets at the bottom of the flap that hold the door closed when not in use to keep wind/insects/birds out. Completed project has a professional look. Highly recommended.
