need input on venting range hood


Ive spent the last month redoing more than half of my kitchen.

it all started with taking down one set of cabinets, backsplash and countertops.

everything is now back, new granite countertops and wonderful backsplash.

i have purchased a wall mounted range hood and now it is time to install and vent it. before installing it i wanted to make sure the venting is in good shape.

my first move was to go through the wall, but the top of the exhaust vent would go into the soffit so that was out of the question.

second move was to consider going into the attic and then elbowing it down into the soffit, but the 6" duct wont fit.

my third idea is to go through the roof, but im deathly afraid to put in a roof vent as of hte consequence of leaks.

how hard is it to install the roof vent? or should i run the duct out of hte side of my house?

thanks for input

Done right there's 0 reason going through the roof will leak.
Should look something like this when done.

Lower part of the vent sits on top of the shingles not under them.

I just ran mine out the side and it couldn't be easier,it's a hassle going up to the roof if you don't have to.
