Bathroom fan vent

Posted by sarahlee123 (My Page) on

Should it go through the roof or the soffit? We live in an area that gets snow, and our back roof has some slope,but is not very steep. Our contractor says that a roof installation would be best, but I'm concerned about snow/ice blocking the vent. Any thoughts on the subject?

I agree with the contractor. At least in my area they are required to be vented through the roof. Might want to check with the local code enforcement folks.
