Venting a microwave to the outside


We are trying to remodel our kitchen ourselves and have everything out, down to the studs. We can run the interior vent work from the microwave to the outside wall but we are not sure what is the best way to go through the wall. We have aluminum siding that we think has asbestos under it. Any suggestions?

Gosh, first time I've heard of anyone venting a microwave...just what are you intending to cook in there that requires venting? and where to do vent from? the whole cabinet?

Shouldn't you be more concerned about how you're going to vent the stove?

I think they're referring to a microhood. Wall mounted microwave with built in exhaust fan. Try to download the installation manual of the model you're looking to buy and see what they recommend for venting.

This guy needs to get out more. If resturaunts use vents why not homes? Maybe it's different in Canada
