Bought the 6 inch one for my new range-hood and installed them the same day. All my previous vents were from the Home-Depot and plastic flaps usually survived no more than 2 or 3 harsh Ontario winters.
When it is new it looks really sexy, I mean shiny and cool and making every neighbour jealous (unfortunately CopperLab site doesn't allow attaching images to reviews, or I would). I am not sure though for how long this copper shine will last.
The sleeve is thick and made of quality stainless steel and I liked it. The copper is not really thick but sufficient for dryer or range-hood vent. I ordered one with wide edges (stucco) and if you try to hold it with fingers at the corner of these edges than edges will bend. The screen is soldered to a vent and it is not that easy to remove.
In really windy days the foam cushion does help to reduce noise coming from flap, but does not eliminate this noise completely.
Delivery to Canada a bit pricey (around $50).
Overall vent feels OK and I hope it will last for long time.
Overall I was please with the quality of construction, but wished that the screen and foam cushion were incorporated with a bit more finesse. Also, I would love to see it made out of heavier gauge 20 oz copper.
Beautiful vent and replaces one that was very visible and ugly.
Product (Copper Dryer Vent / Exhaust Vent) arrived quickly and exceeded my expectations. The high level craftsmanship is is obvious immediately. If you are looking for a well made quality product look no further.
I'm glad I kept shopping around until I found what I was looking for, a high quality part that will go well with my house brick exterior. I highly recomend CopperLab products.
I have now used 4 of these vents (in different configurations). Plus numerous other products from CopperLab I won't consider using anything else anymore. These things are awesome and will last a Lifetime. And copper is beautiful on any house (new or after patina). Thanks again
this is great compared to all the stuff I looked at the big box stores.
Looks good what I was looking for
The rubber was only on the bottom of this vent. It should be on all three sides. However, I was very pleased with the quality of this vent.
I have been putting this job off for awhile because I could not find a high quality product . This one is great , Thanks .
