My home has a wood burning stove in the basement and its insulated stove pipe runs up an old brick lined chimney to the roof. If I added an additional wood burning stove on the main floor of the house, could I install a second stove pipe in the same chimney space. There is plenty of room for 2- 8" stove pipes, but is it allowed by code?
Even on a mildly windy day, the new metal chimney surround makes a banging sound. The wind pushes the side in-and-out, which causes a sound like a drum. Is there any type of brace, support or liner that the contractor can install to prevent the sides from being indented and springing back into place? Thanks for the help.
The tall brick chimney on our North Carolina cabin is beginning to lean away from the house. Right now there is only about a foot of space there, but I know it will grow. What can I do about this?
