I can get a cheap 3-louver cap from a big box store.
It's true, you can get a cheap 3-louvered cap or even a plastic hood-style cap from a big box store or even some websites. These caps might work for a while, but over time they deteriorate, crack and become brittle in the sun. The plastic used in these products is not UV resistant. Over time they fail, causing lint to build up and other issues. We recommend installing a metal or a unique UV-resistant cap. Yes, you can save a few dollars, but you will need to replace the cap in a few years.
Our metal and UV-resistant caps have no louvers or screens to collect lint and come with a lifetime guarantee.
Top reasons to install a good quality cap:
Save you money, you will never have to replace it again with our lifetime guarantee
No more lint build-up and faster dry times due to superior airflow
Peace of mind knowing you have the best product available in your home
Pest resistant, fewer chances of animals, birds, and even those pesky squirrels entering your home
