    Hello Jonathan, if the vent was installed perfectly flush, this should not typically happen - if the vent is installed in a way that exposes the damper directly to the wind, we would recommend adding a small weight to the damper to help with this.

    Great. Just as expected. Good quality, all metal with screen for critters & flap for energy efficiency. Thanks!

  2. jeff

    excellent product!

    Product arrived as expected. Quality/construction is perfect. I need to purchase additional and will do so very soon. Great upgrade to “builder-grade” plastic vent covers that deteriorate quickly. Well worth the cost.

    Solid, strong, flaw free construction, nice powder coat. Much better than any big box store. Easy and convenient for homeowners to directly buy from Famco

  6. Scott Gerber (verified owner)

    Perfect! Thank you. Great product and fast delivery for custom made.

  7. Rachel R. (verified owner)

    Was what I was looking for, but cost more than I think it should. I can purchase slightly smaller ones for $14 at Home Depot. I needed a slightly larger one, but paying more than twice as much seems like a lot. Ordering was easy and it was delivered pretty quickly.

  8. Robert McGinty (verified owner)

    Although probably not your fault shipping label lost which delayed delivery, product was as ordered and very satisfactory.

    All was as expected except 2 things.

    1- I Thought I ordered one of the 4inch vent hoods without a screen. Both came with. No worries as it was easily cut out with a utility knife to suit the clothes dryer application.

    2- I was disappointed that the hoods didn’t have pre-drilled holes for fastening to the building. Again no worries, as it was easily remedied.

    Final note. I would likely search elsewhere for the product next time. Main reason being price point and initial expectations of products.

    Exactly what I needed. Forget the ChiCom crap in big box stores. Demand these in new construction and replace current ones with these. No more birds.

  42. Kevin W. (verified owner)

    I would have given this five stars, but for the fact that the dampener does not close/ lay flat against the unit and being Oceanside get a lot of wind action and the hood could be a little more protective for my needs but other than that a well made product which is precise in measurement as using a 6” hole cutter through 4” thick wood was a tight and snug fit.
