For those that have wood stoves in your fur shed. Which route did you go and why? Iím leaning towards out the wall. This would unfortunately put two 90 degree bends in the chimney though.

Mine goes out the wall (former window) wish I would've gone straight up and when I redo the roof probably will.

strait up drafts so nice and keeps the flue temp up till the pipe is above the roof line.

I have 90* in 2 45* because of where the stove had to go to make wall clearance and still fit between rafters, but those are before the ceiling box so when I clean I have a strait shot to the top.

I burn decent wood and clean once a year and if I get a cup of soot out at most that is about it , I can run a camera up and see that it is clean all the way to the top.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Any chimney through a roof is a leak waiting to happen. I redone a few houses doing away with the brick chimney and routing the stainless double wall outside the over hangs. No issues thus far. Clean out is simple as you can do it from the ground instead of getting on a roof every year.

Addin one to my shed/shop as well. If its out the roof does it need to go above the peak or just two feet past where it passes through the roof?

Fact. I have a ribbed steel roof and leaking is a problem. I need to regroup.

Talk to someone in your local fire department regarding 90 degree angles on a wood stove. I vote straight up.

Note the smokepipe going thru the roof. Obviously the proper way to go!

Eyyyuuup.
Laying down shingles or panels is the easy button- a good roofer knows how to flashing things so they never leak

straight up is better.
Flashing is straight forward and better draft.

Straight up is best. Creosote will run back down to the stove. If you have a 90 turn the creosote wants to stop there and build up and will totally stop up the pipe if it don't burn out first.

While straight up Is the better choice you can still go through the wall. Just use 2 45s instead of 90s.

Straight up gets a better draft but then you have t make sure the roof doesn't leak. I went out the wall and it works fine


Just passin through

I've heard it should be 3' higher than the peak of the roof to draft right.

If you are talking masonry chimneys then I completely agree. But you might be surprised by the amount of leaking masonry chimneys (built and flashed by others) that I've been called to repair. It seems like the concepts of step and counter-flashing are lost on many builders.

If it's a steel pipe I won't touch it, call someone else. IMO, a steel pipe through a roof is a leak waiting to happen. There just isn't any good, reliable, long-term way to properly flash them.

I have a steel pipe through the steel roof of my camp. It doesn't leak but I go up there every other year and schmutz it with roof coating.

I had a steel pipe through the roof at home, It didn't leak for the same reason but rain water coming down the pipe (it had a cap on it) mixed with ash and creosote and ate a hole in the steel smoke shelf of my woodstove.

I built a masonry chimney and ran the stove pipe through a UL rated wall pass-thru into a masonry thimble and into the chimney. The chimney is properly step and counter-flashed and maintenance free as far as leaks are concerned.

I've never had any draft issues with my Quadra-Fire.


Eh...wot?
