Re: Aluminum Tape Directly on Dryer Vent Outlet?
I don't know that you'll experience a problem with the tape, other than if you need to remove the duct for cleaning or moving the dryer, then you'll have to cut it because the tape is too sticky to remove and the heat will pretty much weld it in place.
I've never had a problem with dryer duct clamps damaging metal flex duct. It doesn't take a much force to keep things in place. It also helps to extend the duct a little more than what you need so that as you push the dryer back into place it forces the duct on tighter. I would also recommend that you use the new style dryer duct clamp because it's got a thumb screw on it rather than needing a screwdriver or wrench. They're easier and faster.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
