    I have a Resolute Acclaim Vermont Castings that we want to relocate.
    We removed an existing masonry chimney and want to use the same hole through the roof
    (It is a newer metal roof)

    The pipe run will be about 9 feet and the angle will be slightly flatter than 45 degrees.

    Will this be safe?
    Where can I find specifications for this type of question.

    Our local contractors are in disagreement.

    We are VERY experienced wood burners (30 years with wood stoves in Wisconsin)
    We always burn dry wood

    Please answer soon as I now have a gaping whole in my room and a house full of dust...

    Thanks
    Dawn

    So are you not moving the stove to directly below the hole?

    Maximum degrees allowed together in a class a chimney pipe

    max is 30 degree installation code.
    NFPA 211 code, our UL203.

    Canada allows 45 degree.
