Review from: Marion, NY
I bought a Luxury Metals stainless steel wind defender vent for my dryer after going through 3 plastic/metal vents in 7 years. Best decision I ever made, no more cold air coming into dryer nor house, no wind noise, and my heating bill is lower as well.So now I am about to buy another one for a basement venting situation as well. The company that put that vent in installed one with plastic vanes that leak cold air back in and when I told the company about these, they have promised to install a new Luxury Metals Wind Defender vent - all I had to do was pay for the vent itself.Can you start making stainless steel chimney cleanouts too?
Review from: STANWOOD
Just received my Wind Defender range vent and I'm very impressed with the quality of the metal and the craftsmanship. I'm so glad I didn't buy the inferior product at the big box store. Nice to know there are still true craftsmen out there.
Review from: San Diego
Returned a dryer duct with uneven taping and ordered one in the different color that arrived with gaps in taping. The quality control is not very good.These are defects I expect from a hardware store or supply shop but this is a premium product at a premium price. Not sure who's doing the taping but taping the full bottom, avoiding overlap and height difference, and aligning the tape would be the most effective way to seal the duct.

I got in over my head on a DIY range hood installation. Purchased the incorrect exterior vent from a big box and already had a hole cut in the side of the house!!! I was unable to find the correct pipe 8" locally, and ended up ordering through Luxury Metals. Communication through was GREAT, answered all my questions, and product arrived
Review from: Cheyenne
This has made a huge difference in the way our stove performs and we haven't had any smoke blow back with our windy days and nights. The ONLY problem has been the bird screen gets clogged with creosote and the carbon monoxide sensor goes off in the house. We have to clean this every 5-7 days or it makes the sensor go off. Thankfully, we have an underground home so we don't have to lug a 30' ladder out each week....but this is a problem and had I known it would be, would not have ordered the cap with a bird screen. The next time it is clogged I will take a picture to send. To blasted cold today! -4 for a high!

Hi Dave – Just a brief update to inform you that the Wind Directional Chimney Cap I purchased from you has improved the burning efficiency of my airtight stove by not less than 30% as a "best guess". The stove starts more easily, burns more efficiently and burns more completely (i.e. no left over charcoal debris by morning) than it ever has! Also, I particularly appreciated your willingness to provide me with a much wider storm caller to accommodate our typically heavy snow load at no additional cost. First rate Company in my view! – Doug
Review from: marion
very well built,had to trim the pipe adapter to get it to fit inside my supervent pipe but no big deal,easy to install,this wind directional cap allows my chimney to draft like a rocket and so far no smoke in the house at all,not evan a puff when the feed door is opened,or when starting a fire,was having a problem with down draft with a strong east to south east wind haven't had one yet to see if it has completely cured my downdraft issues, but since installing this rain cap my chimney has never drafted this well,thanks again for the great product and fast shipping

Review from: Tinnie NM
Dave,Received and installed your wind cap last week. Just wanted to let you know it is working as well or better than advertised! Our Morso wood burner is operating so much better I cannot beliece it. We want to get one for the 6" PVC exhause on our incirneration toilet as well. Keep up the good work and quality products!
Review from: Santa Cruz
Dave,Thanks again. I really liked the quality of the last wall vent we ordered for our bathroom, I knew who to get our range hood vent from. Take CareBill
Review from: Red River, NM
Just received my post end caps and they look great. I haven't secured them yet, but I couldn't be happier with the product.
Review from: Slocan Park, BC, Canada
Ordered powder coated log end post caps. There was no delay in shipping despite customs, they were well-packaged and arrived within a much shorter time line than I would have expected. Even with the CDN-USD exchange rate, they were an excellent value and look amazing!!
Review from: Salt Lake City, UT
Luxury Metals is just AMAZING with customer service. I rarely ever leave reviews, but after working with Dave, I just had to. I was selling a property and the inspection came back and said I needed a directional wind cap for the vent on my instant hot water heater. With a very tight deadline to complete the work, I contacted Dave and he got the part overnighted to me. Unfortunately, when I ordered it, I did not measure for the size -I just used the hot water heater's product literature, so the cap didn't fit! I contacted Dave and even though the part was out of stock, he had it fabricated and sent to me in less than 2 days! Amazing! I wish all companies had customer service like this -and if I ever need to order something like this again there is no one else I will ever use.
Review from: Dallas, GA
WHAT A FIND! The prices may seem a bit much for "just a dryer vent" when compared to that of big box stores, but they are AWESOMELY much better. We no longer have the ticking noise when the wind blows; the laundry rm doesn't feel drafty anymore, & the floor isn't s cold. I highly recommend this product; just can'y say enough good things about it.
Review from: Bonita, CA
Found Luxury Metals when search for a venting solution for my portable air conditioner. Very difficult to find a quality solution to having a permanent venting system (not of the window type) to get the hot air out of the room. Found the perfect solution. Dave was super helpful in making sure that I got just what I needed. So glad I found Dave and Luxury Metals.
Review from: Salem, CT
Dave,Thanks for exchanging the 8" duct for a 7" so easily ...I am completely happy with the result. I had a tight space to get this hood installed and your unit finished it off perfectly. As so many others have said, the quality of the range hood ducts is unmatched in any store around here ...period. Money well spent for A-1 quality.

The Deck Log Post Caps look great! My railing is now protected. Pictures attached. Thank you! Bernie

Review from: Plainfield, IL
Hi Dave,Hood is up and doing well, numerous storms, high winds and sub-zero cold and not a peep of air coming in, excellent.Installed hood on a mounting block for dutch lap siding, looks great see photo. I have made up a couple of color coded strips that will cover the screws. Have to wait for warm weather to install.Very pleased with your product, well done.Thanks again for all your help.Best regards,Russ
Review from: Albert Lea, MN.
I purchased a high wind directional chimney cap in Oct. 2014. I was having blow back problems with my wood burning stove. The chimney cap I purchased solved the problem, even with 50 mile per hour wind gust. I couldn't be more satisfied. Thank You Dave Brown and Luxury Metals.
Review from: Jackson, Ohio
Dave,We are very pleased with the wind directional cap we ordered. We have a pellet stove and have had problems with smoke coming into our house when it is windy. My husband installed the cap right before we had high winds and very cold temperatures. The cap did an awesome job! It not only kept smoke out of our house, but also improved the performance of our stove. I have already ordered another cap for our cabin. Thanks so much for a great product and great service!
Review from: Golden, CO
Dave, the log caps look great! They are exactly the color I needed and are nice and heavy. My cabin is looking awesome. Thank you!Jerry

Review from: Shaker Heights, OH
Thank you for the great service and high quality product. The item showed up just in time today and will be installed early tomorrow morning right before they close up the kitchen ceiling and install bead board. Our contractor said it was the nicest vent he has seen.
Review from: Allston, MA
Hello Mr. Brown,I want to let you know how much I LOVE the Wind Defender! Our previous, lame range hood vent would constantly flap in the slightest wind and in the ten years since it was installed, everyone we asked to fix it would say that there was nothing to be done. It was very frustrating, not only because of the noise, but in the winter, all of our precious heat was being sucked right out of the house.Finally, an HVAC guy told me about your product and offered to install it when I got it and all I can say is, wow! The Wind Defender is VERY well made, beautiful, and most important to me, doesn't flap in the wind. It is well worth the price.Thank you, thank you!P.S. I'm going to look around the house and see what else we can replace with one of your products. :-)Sincerely,Barbara W

Review from: Santa Barbara
Quality product, premium customer service, and delivers what they promise. Highly recommend doing business with Dave!
Review from: Argyle, TX
DaveThanks for being very easy to work with delivering a good product quickly and on time. I just painted them black, put silicone inside on the seam and glued them to the post tops. Should protect the logs for many years and look good too. A gentleman in town wanted $50 each to make custom rolled steel ones. Since I needed 24 the total price difference was substantial.Cheers,jw

Hi Dave. Here's our finished coop with the gorgeous copper turbine. Great craftsmanship! Thanks again for the outstanding customer service Rebecca and Ted (my handyman partnerHere are a few pics for y'all.
Review from: Jersey Village, TX
Dave,Awesome Product It has a good draw with little wind. I almost forgot to send you some pictures. There is hundreds of Oilfield people see this pit every year and have build fires in it so you will probably be getting calls wanting some of these so get ready.!! That chimney cap works great!
Review from: Mohawk, NY
Hi Dave,We just completed installing the vent today. We are very happy with the product and the short time it took to get it to us. We’re in the midst of a bathroom remodel, and the previous homeowner had the bathroom vent’s exhausting into the attic. I took some pictures of the installed unit. The outside photo shows a block of wood with vinyl over it and a ‘custom made’ drip cap from the scrap stainless duct we had to trim off. I also took some inside photos, one close-up and another showing the connection to the bathroom fan. I later sealed the junctions with duct tape.You’re welcome to put the photos on your website if you wish, provided the line of caulk around the vent doesn’t bother you! (ha ha) You’ll also notice we used stainless screws with washers to further anchor the vent to the block of wood, we didn’t want to put anything through the vent itself.Thanks again, we’ll probably be in touch again when I work on my other bathroom and my kitchen in the next year or two!- Jim
Review from: Seattle, WA
Dave – I wanted to pass along a compliment I received about the stainless steel rectangular vent I purchased from you recently. I took it to a sheet metal shop here in Seattle because I needed some custom ducting to attach to it. The sheet metal guy was really impressed with how well made the vent was and how accurate the measurements were. He thought it was a real value!Thanks for the great part.
Review from: Montville, NJ
Hi Dave,Several years ago, we ordered several stainless steel vents from you for our new home…and they still look like the looked when they were new!We need another one of these vents. Great product.Thanks!
Review from: Fairburn, GA
Hello Dave,Installed the stainless roof cap – 8 inch (SSIV 8) today. Perfect fit. Nothing could compare with this high quality product at any of the local home improvement warehouses or other supply places. I tried them all.It has an excellent design, and hand made with pride by a metal craftsman.It replaced a tired, and leaky aluminum cap from our kitchen stove vent. Our house is a 1960's brick ranch. Might say a classic. Been in it since 1979.Would also like to complement you on the excellent manner how the cap was packed for shipping.Nice to know there is still good American quality around.
Review from: Whidbey Island, WA
Dave: Just thought I would follow up with a quick note. We received the 5 vents and they are beautifully executed. I will be having them installed in the next few days. I very much appreciate your help with this. I am sure we will receive lots of compliments from those with a discerning eye.regardsRoy & Ann
Review from: New Jersey
Dave, bravo to you and the shop guys on the beautiful stainless barn vents! Once the word gets out, you may be doing alot more of these as people around the country will want them to restore their barns! Thanks so much, Dr. Chuck Westfield. p.s. By the way, this project is being filmed by PBS for a documentary pilot to be aired this fall, so there's a good chance your ventilators will be seen on public television!
Review from: Seattle WA
Dave, Thanks for being so good to me. I won't forget it and I will keep raving about your wind directional chimney cap and service and continue to give out your website to every fireplace store I visit and every person I run into that heats with wood.
