What's the Best Way to Vent My Dryer Out of My House?

Submitted By

I had a hallway laundry closet built, but the contractor did not put in a vent for the dryer.  The closet is on the first level of my home, about halfway between the front and back of the house, and about 15 feet from the side exterior wall.  I can either vent the dryer through the floor and the basement ceiling, then out the back bric,k or I can go up and out of the attic.  Either way, I have to cut through flooring which I have never done.  This is all new to me but I am learning many things after being married 33 years and now on my own.  I can do it -  I just need to know which approach would be best.  Thanks!  Karen
