    Default Oh..that's a 'Coating Flap'...

    I called out this dryer duct rooftop vent being taped over at itís sides which inhibits the discharge of exhaust and presents a 180-degree bend. The roofer responded that it in fact was not taped over...but provided a 'coating flap' to prevent wind driven rain from entering. I've seen 10,000+ roof vents and none were ever taped over so I'm thinking this particular roof (and only this roof) is prone to severe wind in wet conditions. Are they kidding?

    Not sure of what is shown, but from what I think I am seeing, that did not start out as a proper dryer exhaust vent and it certainly has not ended up as one either.
