Cost of installing new range hood with venting?

We have a non-venting hood right now that does nothing. We need to added venting to the outside and the range is on an inside wall. Any ideas on cost? Who to call for this kind of job?

Thanks!

Any sort of general contractor will be able to help you. You may or may not need to update the electrical. You will need to run the venting, which will probably require removing and replacing some of the ceiling. Depending on the layout of the ceiling joists this could be very tricky.

If it were my kitchen, I would at least consider a self venting hood, which you may be able to install yourself with little trouble.

If the hood you have now has no knock-out panels in it to install ducts, then you will need a new hood . They can range in price from $39 to 4 figures. A very satisfactory unit can be had for under $150. Get one which accepts
3 X 10 rectangular duct. ELbows and thru-the-wall fittings with outside hood are all readily available, sometimes even in a kit.

The cost to do this depends partly on the type of construction ( wood siding, stucco, etc.) . A good contractor could complete this job in 2 to 4 hours.

Don't hire some mutt from the 7/11 because it is vital that it be done by someone who understands how to maintain the waterproof integrity of the outdoor wall. The quality of this job will be inversely proportional to how many pounds of caulk he tries to stuff in! It is not rocket science, but if you screw it up you will suffer!

Any of the hoods you look at will vent right out the top for you. So what ever it is round or the 3 1/4X10 this can go right up in the cabinets and on into the attic. From there right up and out the roof. They have a roof cap for this and it also has a damper in it to go on the roof.

Ed,

You are assuming an attic above the kitchen. This may not be the case.
