Bathroom vent exhaust?

We just had a bath exhaust fan installed and we are planning on getting insulation added to our attic. The install guy just connected the exhaust line to a rafter in the attic and the insulation guy said he would connect it to the roof mushroom vent. Is that acceptable or do I need to have a separate vent installed in the roof?

Bathroom vent exhaust?


And it should be hard piped - not flex hose
Flex hose gets dips in them and water condensates creating puddles in the low spot. The hose leaks....you have water coming in the ceiling.....
