I am installing a selkirk chimney on a tin roof, how do I guarantee no leaking around the base? It is an ongoing problem, has built up with ice in the winter and leaks through the roof, do I use flashing? If so what is the best way to install it?

You can use metal strapping with short self-tapping sheet metal screws also where it penetrates roof a metal collar on inside should be used and a roof collar approved for B-wall vent pipe to keep water from leaking inside on outside on the roof.You can penetrate outside of B-wall vent pipe with short screws to secure the pipe just don't penetrate both pipes.this outside pipe is just a insulator to keep heat from transferring through pipe.

Is it necessary to put flashing around the chimney?


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

Want to know what the knob at the bottom left corner does? It looks like it opens a air vent. This is for a Majestic fireplace. Model no. 18103269 about 21years old. New home owner.


It may be similar to the Dutch West wood burning stove. The air from two front inlet flap opennings at the left and right of the glass door direct air upward and then inward at the top of the flame. This is intended to swirl the flame back so that it actually revolves in there before coming back and up the hole up into the top mounted reaction chamber where the platinum particles in the fiberous ring cause a catalyst type reaction of unburned gas. The main damper has to be closed to do this. You have to watch the flame to make it happen with the adjustment and the fire has to be up to about 350 degrees F. Because you are now making the flame roll around in there you will find the whole unit starts to snap with more heat output and if you use a magnetic KEL stovepipe thermometer it will shoot up to 420 degrees in 15 seconds so be ready to reduce the air to control your fire. Anything above 450 F. is dangerous, uses too much fuel and might send flames up to the creosote in the chimney. A clean chimney is fairly safe but the stainless steel ones with mineral asbestos lining by SELKIRK CANADA are the best as they will allow a fair number of seconds of CREOSOTE BURN which is kind of dangerous and can spit flame balls on to your roof, burning up cedar shake roof material before you can get up there with a garden hose and extinguisher.

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.

You must conact your roofer and complain... COMPLAIN.. it sounds like you have a leak and the installers have allowed moistere to get under the roofing materials...!!!

Basically water expands when it freezes (ice cube tray.. over filled ) so if there's any kind of leak the water penetrates.. feezes allowing it to migrate up under the materials and then as the warm air from inside the attic causes the ice to then melt. I'd call and find out what the deal is.. especially if this has been going on SINCE the new roof was installed....

good luck

My chimney is falling down and I want to replace it with a standard galvanized pipe. Is a 6" pipe good enough to run from basement to above roof?


No
the chimney needs to be big enough to carry away combustion products, if the brick chimney has a 10inch square to carry the smoke (100sqin) 28.3sqin for a 6inch round chimney wont do it
needs to withstand combustion heat, mild steel gal wont.
building codes specify what you can use in your region and diameter / house size rules
Selkirk style chimneys sell and are so priced for the reason
