    Soot leaking from newly installed chimney pipe?

    Hi, newbie stove question. I've had an insert in the past, but just had my first stove installed a few days ago in a new house. I've burned two fires in it, both using only newspaper, kiln-dried grocery store wood, and biobricks. The smell of the paint curing was strong, so I kept the windows...

    Hi all, we moved into a home with an old Vermont Castings Vigilant stove that we are replacing with a new Drolet Escape 1800 as well as the old single wall stove pipe and adding a flue liner.

    How do you attach a roof brace to a standing seam metal roof?

    I need to install 6 feet of pipe above my eave so I need to use a roof brace, but I have a standing seam metal roof. All the braces I have found online seem to connect by drilling into the roof. Is this the recommended method for a metal roof or is there a way to attach the brace to the seams?

    Old Duravent 9-DCR-P?

    Trying to figure out if there is any way to utilize my existing stove pipe, I suspect it is original to the house. I’m aware duravent changed hands several times but unsure what that means for connecting a new wood stove to this. I’m remodeling and would like to install a new wood stove. Any...

I was aware I shouldn't burn dimensional lumber...

As I'm reading everything I can find and burning up YouTube install videos to gather information, I'm still a bit confused on something. Should the double-wall, insulated chimney pipe be ran all...
