We would like to install a woodburning stove in our basement. We would like to exhaust the stove through an exterior wall. Currently, the cinder block exterior wall is covered with faced insulation and 1/2" fire-rated drywall. Can we install an exhaust pipe through this wall or would it be considered combustible? If it is combustible, how would you suggest we exhaust the stove?


All woodstoves need a complete class A ULType103HT chimney, either metal or masonry. You cannot just put a stovepipe through the wall. The single wall stovepipe you are referring to is only to hook a stove to a chimney..not for a chimney in itself. See https://www.hearth.com/what/installstove.html
