I believe Creeper is correct....on dryer vents...no screws....they stick into the pipe and end up catching lint.....and adding to the problem.

Foil tape....

In my area (California, that state that everyone 'seems' to think has too many rules)....you have to use screws on single wall water heater and FAH vents....if you use B-Vent...screws not required (sections lock together).

Obviously depends on location: California Mechanical Code 504.3.1 "... Ducts for exhausting clothes dryers shall not be connected or installed with sheet metal screws or other fasteners that will obstruct the flow. ..."
