Plumber Frankston: Woodlands Grove Range hood Flue

Before we began the job of installing a range hood flue we first had to scope out the area above it, so we climbed into the ceiling to make sure we had a clear and safe path with no obstructions.

After we deemed the ceiling space above the range hood safe and practical we then moved on to check the roof tiles to make our first move of cutting the hole for the flue to pass through. Orbit’s Plumber Somerville then moved back down to the kitchen where the range hood was located and began to run the flexible flue. Our Mornington Peninsula Plumber cut a hole through the ceiling plaster and connected it to the range hood.

Next we moved back into the ceiling space to retrieve the flexible duct, we then fastened our solid steel flue as it passed through the roof tiles. We connected the flexible duct to the steel flue.

Our next step was to climb back onto the roof and finish off the flue, placing a lead decktite around the flue and over the hole in the tiles with the top of the decktite. We placed a section under the tiles above to help prevent leakage from the rain as water run down hill. After this we fastened the decktite with roofing silicone which helps to stop water getting under the decktite.

Once that is completed we place the gas cowl on top making sure it is snug and secure and after all theses duty’s are performed we headed back into the kitchen to plug the range hood in to the power point provided. Then we tested the flue by turning on the range hood and check every part of the flue to make sure everything is working correctly.
