    I don't see how it could. There has to be a backdraft damper.

    Ummm ... as far as the question goes "Can this roof jack be used to serve dryer vent?", the answer is 'Yes, it CAN be used for a dryer.'

    BUT, it is *not supposed to be* used for a dryer.

    Jim,

    How come Jane didn't get that replaced for you when you bought that home?

    I think it was the sorry inspector that missed it.
