  • Sourcing Wood Stove Chimney Pipe & Expertise in SthWst Ont for Do-it-yourself install

    I am ready to install a new wood stove in my shop (yes, insurance approved as long as I have it WETT certified). I need about 16 feet of black double walled 6 inch pipe which I will be running straight up from the stove to near the peak of my roof (12/12 pitch). I also require a kit to secure it to the joists on the second floor and a kit for through the roof . Finally I need a roof kit with a 3-4 foot double walled stainless steel pipe for the section that comes out of the roof.

    I went to the Rona in Goderich and they don't carry Chimney Pipe (special order). I went to the TSC and although they carry the pipe they really didn't have anyone in the store who knew about it (Saturday of a Thanksgiving weekend staff). Very friendly staff but unable to help with questions.

    So, here is my question. Where is the best place to source these items in Southern Ontario (best price with staff who know what they are talking about)?

    Thanks.

      Oddly enough, I got my chimney from RONA in Exeter. That was over 10 years ago, it doesn't look like they are carrying it any more. I bought "Security Chimney" brand and got all the information off their website. Again, I just went to their website and their dealer locator failed to find anything withing 100 km of me (Seaforth). I can say that they make a great product though. I used the DT line for the inside black pipe and the ASHT for the outside stainless pipe. All the adaptors to go through ceilings etc. and flashing went together very easy.

      I think you are being smart putting the chimney straight up from the stove. They draw better that way and are easier to clean. Sorry I'm not much help in the "where" department, but if you send me a private message I can take some time some day and give you a hand with the shopping part. I'm no good on a ladder any more since I messed my knee up but if I can be of some guidance to help out, just give me a shout.

      I think some parts will have to be ordered anyway no matter where you go. The adaptors to go through a ceiling and roof may not be a stock item. If you find a dealer, then what brand they carry, the manufacturers website may be your best bet to putting your order together. Unless you are going with a retail outlet that specialises in that sort of thing and they have the staff that are accustomed to the product.
