Hello! I’m a first time home buyer and my inspector found the dryer exhaust vent on the roof with a what looked like a rodent screen/bird attached on both sides of the vent on the outside of the vent/shield. The other screens were on bathroom exhaust t vents, but attached directly over the exhaust pipe and not on the outside. The openings were about a quarter inch.
I’ve attached the picture below. Is this a big no no? The inspector didn’t seem concerned as it wasn’t directly covering the vent, but I wasn’t sure if this was going to create a lint buildup overtime.
Thanks so much!!! Amanda
