We've started the job, and now I'm a bit stuck. We ran the duct work from the hood, but now are in a bit of pickle trying to get it through the exterior wall.
Our house has vinyl siding and I'm slightly concerned about how to tackle that. Cut out from the inside, trim away the vinyl from the outside, screw on the aluminum vent, then caulk like mad?
Should I wait until spring, when the weather is warmer?
Can I caulk in the cold?
Is there some special vinyl vent flapper that I should know about?
Supply List in hand:
- ducting standard 10x4 stainless box
- exterior vent = aluminum with a gasket flapper
We got it all at Home Depot...pretty standard, I guess.
