You cant. a clearance of 3 inches must be maintained to combustibles where you penetrate the roof.you shouldn't be overly concerned about this small area.

PVC pip manufacturers DO NOT recommend PVC pipe for flue gases. Some gas appliance manufacturers do, but this is no guarantee of safety. Here is a link to an article you may find informative on the the subject.

Even if it was a wood burning fireplace from the beginning & was converted to gas ?


Now that's a LOT of additional information. I hesitated to answer your question the way it was worded originally.... IF in fact it is a masonry chimney and originally built to burn wood, you should have a chimney sweep do a thorough inspection of the flue to ensure it is safe to use again. Flue temperatures, while burning wood, EASILY exceed 1200 degrees whereas natural gas flue temps are in the 450 degree range.

It also should have a clay tile liner and not be fabricated of brick only. The unsafe thing of an unlined brick chimney or a chimney with a severely cracked liner has to do with unburned gases condensing within the inner surfaces of the chimney. Some of those gases are moist and will condense on the inner surface and eventually have an unsafe build up that can be ignited by an oversized flame or excessive sparks causing a flue fire. During a flu fire, temperatures exced 2000 degrees and an unlined BRICK flue of that age could have lost some mortar allowing superheated gasses to seep into the crevices. Those superheated gasses then explode when igniged by the flue fire and either do extreme damage to the flue, blow the entire chimney apart or in the worst case scenario burn your house down.

I'm sure you've seen houses burnt and the chimney was left standing....but you have also seen damaged houses with the chimneys blown off the end of the house and laying in rubble toppled out into the yard. The latter visual picture was an example of the end result of the gasses exploding. If the chimney was inside the house instead of on the end of the house, the house would have been burnt also.

There is a lot to be careful about when heating with wood and to start off safely you need to have your chimney inspected and the gas components removed with the gas line capped EXTERNAL of the fireplace.

It depends on your local code. Contact your building department, get a permit and ask the inspector, he will help you and if you follow is instructions you will pass the inspection.

Can one use unvented gas logs in a superior CF3860 fireplace?I


Little documentation on this fireplace but it appears to be a vented wood-burner(?) If vented, there should be no problem using gas logs. If burning correctly, you may consider cutting back on the flue and intake air, as moisture build-up is the biggest drawback to gas fireplaces. Too much air is just wasting gas.

I want to install (bathroom) an electric wall insert fan heater on an outside wall. Will the insulation and plastic vapour barrier be an issue???


Depends on the heater/fixture. All devices of this sort list minimum clearances between sides and combustable materials.

As to will insulation be a problem, depends what you call a problem. Will it need to be removed? Most likely yes if for no other reason then to provide cavity/freespace to install the heater. For a exterior wall application a small baseboard electric heater would be a better solution to the problem or a toekick electric heater under a sink vanity.
