    I just bought a new ranch style house and would like to heat with a wood stove in my basement. I need to install a chimney to do this and am considering a stainless steel up my exterior wall. Can anyone suggest some companies to look into for purchasing the chimney. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

    I got mine at lowes for cheaper than I could basically find anywhere else. I think it is supervent but I honestly don't remember. double walled stainless steel. No problems after the first year.

    I have two chimney systems by Selkirk (supervent) purchased from Menards and have no complaints. I would purchase again. It is double wall stainless with the insulation pack inbetween. Polished finish for the exterior. I did have to run some silicon caulk along the exterior seam because on my through the roof installation a slight amount of rain water could follow the seam in. Not an issue with a through the wall and up install.

    Supervent is sold around here at Lowes and Menards. Lowes doesn't carry much, but Menards has most of the line in 6". Keep in mind that Selkirk doesn't permit exterior elbows like in the pic above. I have one Supervent chimney and one Metalbest. Happy with both.

    Check www.dynamitebuys.com for good prices and customer service.

    When going up along the side of the house, think about what you will do when cleaning the chimney. Bends can cause some problems. Keep it straight if possible is our thought.

    Also don't forget you need some rise to that horizontal section. 1/4" per foot minimum rise.
