Frustrating day yesterday...

Posted 03-19-2010 at 10:11 AM by ChrisDIY

Went at lunch to Lowe's to buy duct to continue on the range exhaust. 3-1/4" x 10" duct comes in two pieces so it costs roughly $10 per 3' section. On the other hand they carry 6" round for $7 per 5' section. No brainer right! However, Lowe's does not have a 6" wall cap. Trying to save money I buy the 6" round and plan to hit Home Depot on the way home. I leave work and go to Home Depot. Home Depot doesn't carry Broan anymore and the 6" wall cap they have is a cheap as it gets, with a very flimsy gravity draft flap. No pest protection at all. So I leave rather irritated and head down the street to Menard's. Menard's doesn't have the 6" wall cap at all, but has the 3-1/4" x 10" wall cap by Broan. So I decide to get it. WRONG Menard's doesn't take AmEx!!! So I leave my purchases and head back to Home Depot, at this point I can't remember who has or doesn't have what. Arrive back at Home Depot and realize they pretty much only carry their brands now. I call the Lowe's by my home and they don't have any wall caps, so I leave and head BACK to Lowe's by my job, the opposite direction of home.

Forced to use the 3-1/4" x 10" duct I return the 6" and head home nearing 8:00pm.
