Hopefully I’ve shared some useful thoughts and info with you all up here…and for a fair price. Well, it’s give back time, at least for any of you who have insights into home repair. Need I tell you, that ain’t moi.
We’re renovating a bathroom and the contractor (hey, I’m a job creator!) tells us the easiest way to add a vent would be to have it vent the moisture into the attic. Sounds fine to me, and easy. But the internet, at a rate of something like 10 to 1 says absolutely not. You must vent your bathroom to the outside, otherwise you’ll eventually be stuck with all kinds of horrible mold problems. And I must say: I found these arguments convincing.
The placement of our bathroom will make outside venting a lot harder and the contractor doesn’t seem to think it’s worth it. What do you think?
UPDATE: The verdict is in. With very few exceptions, venting to the outside is the way to go. Thanks to all who responded. Truly helpful information!
