Bathroom ventilation through the soffits


Postby genus9 » Sun Oct 07, 2007 2:51 pm

Hi there i apologise for being new to this so here goes.

I have recently installed a bathroom extractor, but cannot vent it to the soffit because it is Asbestos!. However regs say that you cannot drill existing asbestos, so how do I get around driilling this hole to vent my soffit? Can i get a qualified asbestos driller to do this? As this is the easiest form of extraction?
IF by some unlucky event they say i need to put a hole through the wall, unfortunately, my bathroom is surrounded by a Garage on one side and a conservatory and bedrooms. It seems that the only way is up apart from the soffit approach. Also as my existing soffits are not vented, is there a rule about putting new vented soffits in or should they remain sealed. :(

why not vent through the roof via a tile vent terminal or pitched flexi slate.
