Absolutely, if you don't do it you will have to tear up the shingles later and put it in when the roof starts leaking around the chimney

Need class a chimney flashing for penetration through standing seam metal (steel) roof. What flashing is best to avoid corrosion problems due to disimiar metals in contact? Also, how is the flashing...


Hello Stephen.
I do understand what you are talking about with your flashing. Your supplier of the standing seam metal should have similar metal flashing to use on any of your roof flashing points. There is a process to install flashing on a chimney or any other protrusions, If you are still interested post some pictures of what you have and I will explain the best I can. It takes years of experience to do some flashings especially on standing seam metal.

How do I get wood stov in the Chimney?


With a wood stove or vent type chimney it is easy, just take a section of chimney out and insert the heater. With a brick chimney you may have room to put the heater in from inside the house. If not, lower the heater down the chimney.

When it rains hard and there is a lot of wind the rain gets into the chimney and drips through a ceiling light. Is there a chimney cap that I can buy that will eliminate the problem?


Hello,Yes there is a cap for every size chimney BUT that (while always being a great idea) will only prevent a WASHDOWN & keep pests and leaves out.The celing light conserns me that the roof flashing is leaking near the chimney during wind driven rain.Try a cap it can't hurt & I hope it works.

Screen over chimney?


Screen is not the correct product to use to bird or squirrel proof the chimney. Your local hardware will have what is known as hardware cloth. It's actually a heavy wire mesh with 1/4" or 1/2" square pattern. you should be able to purchase it, by the foot, off a roll.

How does a draft inducer blower work


A draft inducer blower is used to create a proper draft in a chimney or exaust pipe from your water heater or furnace. In a high efficiency furnace or water heater, there is not enough heat expelled from the unit to the chimney to create a proper draft. The toxic carbon monoxide gas which is expelled through the chimney from your appliance is normally carried upward due to the rising hot air in the chimney. When appliances got more efficient (putting more heat into the water tank and less going out the chimney), manufacturers had to add this blower to help get the gases out the chimney since there wasn't enough hot air to create a draft.
Hope this helps.

Smelling co2 around tank, replaced ventilation but still smell co2? need to see if there is a special way to install ventilation (model # whirlpool fg1f4040s3nov) gas water heater


You may be smelling other products of combustion but CO2 is a color-less/smell-less gas. A water heater should be vented thru 4" vent pipe to either a chimney or a wye which joins it with another appliance and a larger(size must be calculated) connector which connects to the chimney. There can be no reductions in size as you travel toward the chimney, and all pipe must slope at least 1/4"/foot up toward the chimney. Single wall vent pipe can be used unless it is less than 6" from anything flammable in which case type "B" vent may be used with a clearance of down to 1". If all this is correct your chimney may be over-sized or obstructed. Proper venting can be very complicated and technical and takes up most of most installation manuals for any fossil fuel appliance.
