Until now, there was no way to use an out-of-the-box roof vent for clothes dryers. Code disallows the use of screens and requires a damper. Even when modified, the older style vents are too airflow restrictive to be compliant.

DryerJacks are the first roof vents designed to meet the more stringent venting requirements of dryer exhaust systems. Coupled with The RoofNeck, they work together to strengthen the ductwork connection.

The RoofNeck- The RoofNeck is a transition connection between the internal duct work and external roof vent termination, creating intuitive, spot-on, stronger and stable connections between the internal duct and roof termination.

Multiple methods of installation allow for a versatile fit to ensure the exhaust continues moving up, and out of the system.
