Bathroom outdoor vent help

Who sells the best bathroom exhaust vent? This one is garbage, and only 2-3 years old. As you can see the bottom one is messed up. I threw a tennis ball for 20 min until I fixed it. Its about 26ft in up there. I want to replace it, and I have another bathroom vent not pictured, but its just to the left of the picture.

I bought the bird metal stuff to keep birds and animals out a few months ago, and had to rent a ladder. Ladder I got didn't feel safe on, and did get hurt when I was done which costed me about $150. So obviously I am paying somebody to replace the vents, but I want the best one I can get that will last a lot longer than these.

You could use a Broan 885AL, and have the guy put j channel around it. https://www.broan-nutone.com/en-us/accessory/885al

They make vinyl siding mounts too but the ones with the louvers are somewhat problematic, and get plugged with lint. The ones with a round lid are better. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Builders...4117/100673014

I wouldn't consider myself a vent connoisseur, but I've installed 6-8 of these so far. I find they are heavier gauge and better made than the ones you get at the box stores - and surprisingly reasonably priced.

I don't really like those styles for the side of the house. I am thinking about just patching those 2 holes up, and throwing the vents out.

I am thinking about running the vents out the soffit. I have seen some good looking designs, but not sure what others recommend?
