I don't know who built this house but they did it stupidly.
I need to replace my external dryer vent cover because one of the fins broke. However, it seems like whoever built the house, covered the edges of the vent with stucco instead of attach it to the house with screws.
I think the previous owner ran into the same problem and just put screen mesh over the problem. I want to fix the problem correctly (which is replace this vent cover) but I don't see any way other than breaking into the stucco.
Is there any advice on how to fix this problem or is putting the screen mesh the only way to address this issue without breaking into the stucco and making this a bigger and more expensive issue?
