You may need to redirect the vent through the brick of the side of the house with no soffit

The first step is to find the offending soffits
. Set up a ladder near the area in question and tap on the soffits
to see which ones rattle.
Gable vents kept open while having soffit
and ridge vents are causing a short circuit between soffit
and ridge vents, and reducing to a minimum, if not interrupting completely, the air intake from the soffits
"We placed new millwork around selected old columns, added decorative ceiling soffits
at strategic locations for interest & visual site lines, and reused ceiling 'j--box' locations for our completely new lighting pattern," said Horst.
We pay as much attention to the quality of our exterior trim as we do the interior trim on the upscale houses we build, so we don't want to see ugly strip vents or round metal button vents messing up the soffits
. Instead, we've come up with a nice-looking detail that provides plenty of roof ventilation without calling attention to itself.
Since there is no gable wall, the only choice is through a soffit
in cold climates.
We offer both ventilated and nonvented soffit
Is it better to vent through the soffit
(putting in a new vent specifically for the fan) or run the venting pipe up near an existing roof vent for the humidity to escape through?
Within this grand, airy volume, a folded concrete canopy marks the precise, even ceremonial point-of-access; the soffit
of this contemporary aedicule is lined by the bottom flanges of steel beams and is inset with grids of glass block.
The culprit is almost certainly the soffit
that meets the roof, which is one of the toughest areas to waterproof.
and fascia, too, dictate the look and choice of siding and trim.
