Bathroom fan/vent

We have the Jones & Emmons "A Frame" and while the master bathroom has a window, it still gets pretty steamy in there when we shower. We are soon to be getting a new foam room and are thinking maybe before it gets put on, we should add some kind of fan/vent in the bathrooms, either wall mounted or ceiling mounted. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing? :wink:

Hi,

Don't know if you already tried, but there's an often overlooked Search button at the top of the Chatterbox Lounge where you can search prior postings. Not all hits will be completely relevant, but you should be able to pull up some good discussions.

Bathroom fan installation is fairly simple. Fan installation with a new roof is a good idea since it usually requires a new hole in the ceiling, and a cover on the roof. It can be hard to find someone to install a bath fan for two reasons. 1. It is a small job. 2. Wiring must be done that involves the bath wall and the roof. E-mail us at durafoam at earthlink dot net and let me know where you are. I may be able to recommend someone who can do this for you.

You are right ! I know nothing of Southern California contractors. I hope your project goes well. Many electricians can install a fan and have it ready for roofing. Please make sure they talk to the roofing contractor first, and tell them what's going to be on the roof...better yet, fax them a drawing. The roofing contractor you choose may be able to recommend someone.
