Question Bathroom Fan

I have two Panasonic Bathroom fans (FV-15VQ5) which I picked up 4 years ago that I'm finally getting around to installing. The fans are being installed on the second floor of my home and will be vented through the roof. To make sure I have everything, I'm posting my list here in case I've missed something or a better recommendations is offered. For each fan I'm planning on getting the following parts:

1) 1 x Broan 634M Roof Cap
https://www.amazon.com/Broan-NuTone-...dp/B0013G31B0/

2) 1 x 6" Insulated Flexible Duct

3) 2 x 6" Duct Clamps
https://www.amazon.com/Active-Stainl.../dp/B007IT35R6

I'm getting the shingles replaced on my roof next month so the roofers are going to cut the hole in the roof and install the roof caps for me. I just need to go into the attic to connect the flexible duct from the fan to the roof cap.

Are there any other parts I would need to finish the install of this fan? Any other part recommendations instead of the items I listed above?

Thank you

Good fans !

Looks like you have the exhaust part covered pretty well. I don't use clamps. I tape the inside duct to the fan first and then tape the outside insulation over that. Use metal foil tape for a good sealing job.
