Default Rangehood vent not centered

Hi all,

I will be putting in a chimney style range hood but the vent is not currently centered. I have attached a pic. How easy is it to move the vent? Is this something that the builder needs to fix or can the installer of the range hood do it?

Your input is appreciated. Thanks!

You should ask the builder to fix it as you must have paid for "removal of cabinets for chimney hood fan" upgrade...

Not only is that not centred, it's almost not in the same house. That's awful. The builder should be fixing that. I'm almost scared to know what the Tarion rule for that is.

It's not required to be centered for a regular hood fan which is how the builder installed it.

For a chimney style it is required, however, depends what the agreement was with the builder. They may or may not change it now as it's installed according to what they're obligated to do.

I did my kitchen after closing instead of through the builder. Once the new kitchen was designed it was clear it would not be centered. I had no grounds to ask the builder to move it of course. I hired someone who did small jobs like that and he opened up the drywall and centered it and closed it back up. He also added a couple of pieces of 2x4 (horizontally) to support the hood fan which was quite heavy, closed it up and it was good to go.

i had my builder re-centre mine (was 3" off centre) - it took less than an hour and that was straight out through the back wall.

with yours being into a bulkhead it should be even easier.

Thanks guys, I will ask the builder to fix it. It's a big relief to know that it can be easily fixed.

We installed an chimney hood aftermarket (not builder installed) but because of the custom/built in appliances we worked with the builder to get everything in the right spot, and supplied them with complete mechanical drawings and installation instructions for each appliance. In the case of the chimney hood it clearly showed the size and location of vent pipe as well as location of the wall outlet/wiring.

They had us initial each page and it was part of the contract so that there couldn't be any misunderstanding.

I still measured everything during the framing walkthrough to make sure everything was in the right spot. Easier to fix something then than to point out something later that the builder did wrong.

What new development are you in? Your kitchen cabinets look exactly like mine with my new builder.
