Drill a clean 4" hole in the exterior wall - wood and vinyl siding


the way the vinyl gets cut for the vent depends entirely on the type of vent itself. some are face mounts which require a hold and nothing else.. others are j block style which you install first to the wall then notch the siding to tuck up into then a trim ring goes on

regardless which method, i always line the the openign for a hole with vycor or blueskin starting at the bottom then working my way up around to the top. then lapping the tyvek over top.. then the vent gets set into a bead of caulking on the face of the siding and then a generous bead in around the pipe itself

for a jchannel style i install it then cover the nailing flange with vycor side aroiund it leaving a 1/4- 3/8" gap then slip the trim ring on
