Dryer Duct Pipe Sealing Recommendations
I am looking for recommendations on dryer duct sealing methods. From what I understand the options are: foil tape, mastic or foil backed mastic. Due to the floor plan layout I need to run dryer vent horizontally through an interior partition wall that is 8.5″ thick. The wall is build using two rows of 2x4s on flat tied with plywood gussets. My concern is that if the dryer vent starts leaking, the moisture build up inside the wall most likely will cause mold growth. The dryer vent is a single strait run with no elbows between the dryer box and the exterior.
