I have a kenmore dryer that needs to be installed.  I need to run a new vent line.The question is: can I run the vent vertically out thru the roof?  The run is about 8-10 feet with one (possibly two )  90 degree bends.  I plan to use smooth rigid ducting.

Thanks!! deltarebel

Honorable master of appliance wisdom,    Please ignore the ingorance of this one, but I request your enlightenment.    I read the venting for dummies article and according to the vent types, length of runs and type of duct  I plan to use, it appears that I should be able to run the vent thru the roof except for one thing--  I need to run it vertical.  Is this a big no-no?  Maybe it creates too much back pressure. 

Is this possible or am I creating something bigger than the explosion of Krakatoa?

Thank you!

How would you prevent rain from getting into the vent?  Do you get snow where you live?  If so, a roof vent won't work in the winter.
