Chimney FAQs

Why can’t I use stove pipe to add some length to my existing chimney?

Chimney systems by code need to be installed once a transition through a combustible (roof or wall) is required. Once the transition to chimney is made the chimney system must be completed through to termination (chimney cap).

Can I add different makes of chimney to my existing chimney system?

No, chimney components from different manufacturers cannot be combined. Code dictates that a chimney system must be comprised of components as certified by one manufacturer. Futhermore, most components are designed in such a way as not to fit correctly if matched with another system's components,  rendering it not only uncertified but extremely unsafe.
