Dryer vent in middle of wall?
I have a downstairs laundry room and the dryer vent is simply a hole in the floor with a short duct that goes under the floor to a hole in the rim board.
The problem is I need to attach a deck ledger along the rim board of the house so I want to know if I can move the vent up a few feet so it is in the middle of the wall? Is that usually allowed by code?
When the original deck was built 25 years ago they just cut a gap for the vent and of course it rotted the deck in that area.
