I'd like to vent my range hood out through an exterior brick wall. How would I go about making a 6 inch hole for the vent?
- I'd guess I'd use a masonry chisel to chip out the mortar and then pull out a couple bricks on the interior and exterior layers of the wall. Is this the best tool/approach to use?
- Do I need to be concerned about the load of the bricks above the hole?
- How would I make the hole round rather than square?
- Any other considerations?
