Thanks for the link. I wasn't able to find a local retailer so that seems like the best option.

In my case, since I had a package of shingles on hand, I went ahead and replaced all the shingles around the new opening. I did have to use a 5" hole saw so there would be room for the duct insulation and the clamps.
That's the type I will go with. a screen/spring loaded door will keep critters out and drafts down

The fan has one built in. between that and one on the roof it should be pretty well sealed.

appreciate the advice on this. Looks like I"m going ot have to move on this in the next week or two.
I very rarely shower at home, but even so you can see the drips on the walls. The house was built in 1947 and when I moved in 4 years ago that was tops on my list
