stove range vent down ok?


I have a roof situation where it would be much easier to end the air duct from a range hood downward, between the facia, than to penetrate the roof and vent upward. Is that ok or seriously unadvisable?

What type roofing do you have?
How close is it going to be to an outside wall?

24 gauge metal
There is two feet of space between the facia and the wall. I was thinking of installing something in the soffit. The soffit will be 24 gauge metal as well. If I do that is grease going to collect on the soffit or drip down the wall?

You'll get a little grease and grime over time. The filters on your hood should catch the majority of the grease.
