OK, here’s another thing I should plan for somehow. The roof cap and what happens during a roof replacement. If I install a roof cap just about directly above this range hood, and a couple years from now I have to replace the roof (which I will), am I going to have to open the ceiling again to reconnect it? (that would suck). If that’s the case I think I’m going to design a decorative “medallion” to surround the ceiling penetration that we can remove to have access to the connection. Because I KNOW we’ll be replacing the roof within the next 2 to 5 years and it will be a tear-off as there are at least 2 roofing layers up there now.
