Most our clients are custom house builders and home improvement designers ordering custom made metal range hoods for their custom kitchen. There are two version of the metal hood depending on range position on the floor. Either it can be wall mount vent hood or central island.
There is nothing preventing an individual home owner from taking advantage our discount prices from buying custom made metal range hoods for kitchen wall or island and installing as do it yourself. No doubt getting the hood working in a kitchen without any professional help can save money but can you do it?
While attempting custom made range hood installation regardless it is made of zinc, copper or iron you need to consider whether you have adequate tools. You are going to need a power drill with bids for metal including solid iron, hammer, screwdriver and some electrical skills to connect the hood exhaust insert to the plug you need to position behind the range hood in case of wall mount or ceiling if it is island version. Providing your kitchen has vent pipe already hooked to outside, connecting the metal range hood insert is easy, just use the correct duct diameter. If it has a different size, you can place the adapter inside you custom hood allowing correct metal range hood venting.
