Question about Plumbing
I bought a house that I believe used a wood stove to heat the house, and they left the pipe in the roof. It has started to leak now when it rains, so I would like to remove it. how do I get it out? Can you torch it off? Or cut it off? I have no idea.
I would begin by going up on the roof to see what the situation is because you are going to have to remove the stove pipe and repair the roof to assure no leaks. Usually the only thing holding the pipe is roof cement through a rubber boot. Use a razor blade knife to cut through the tar, then remove the boot by pulling the roofing nails that hold it in place. After that, patch the roof and reshingle. If this is more than you care to do yourself you will have to hire it done. good luck
