Wall vent range hood


I want to install my range hood and vent it out the back through our wall with brick siding.

After I cut the hole through the wall, i plan on using expanding foam to fill in the gap between the cut out and the vent.

What if I encounter a vapour barrier that I have to cut through? How can I make sure that barrier stays seal after I cut through it?

It's a 35 year home and I don't know what to expect.

There most likly to be brick, a space, tar paper then plywood, insulation, then drywall or plaster.
There's 0 way to reseal the vaper barrier. It's not all that hard to get a really close cut so the all your going to need is silicone behind the flange on the vent cover outside.

Should I even bother with the expanding foam to seal around vent and brick?

If it's cut right there's not going to be any room for it and if it did expand it may close up the adapter.
