1. Choose your roof style

If not flat make note of your roof angle. IF AT ALL UNSURE PLEASE TAKE A PHOTO AND ATTACH IT TO YOUR QUOTE REQUEST

2. Connect to top of stove or rear of stove?

(ignore whether through roof or wall as you will choose this next)

PREFERRED OPTION IN ALL CASES ESPECIALLY SHORT CHIMNEYS. Very strong design and must be chosen if stove freestanding away from a wall with the flue passing through a vaulted ceiling (strength needed as nowhere to add flue brackets).

Provides a slimmer "single skin vitreous" pipe close to stove but also a step difference in pipe size which some do not like. Not suitable unless flue passes through a wall, or can be bracketed "to a wall or within a ceiling". This method requires two points of attachment to the insulated flue (one of which can be at roof exit point).

Performance always suffers when going off the rear of the stove as opposed to the top. Smoke likes to travel vertically upwards. Stove will usually perform fine once up and running but can be more difficult to light/get going and smoke wafts can exit when opening stove door.

Performance always suffers when going off the rear of the stove as opposed to the top, especially using a 90 degree turn. Smoke likes to travel vertically upwards. Stove will usually perform fine once up and running but can be more difficult to light/get going and smoke wafts can exit when opening stove door.

Note: Vitreous pipe is thin steel, extremely hot and has to be kept 15-18" away from combustible materials and plasterboard. Twin wall pipe (insulated inside) can be as close as 5cm. Even if choosing twin wall insulated pipe you still have the stove distance to combustibles to think about and stoves can often need 50cm+ clearances behind to plasterboard or combustible materials. The answer is usually a slim wall-shield that creates an isolating air gap between board and wall.

See this article if your wall is plasterboard/combustible material (also contains shielding ideas).

3. Where does the chimney leave the building?

4. Extension Special

Applies if a stove is in an extension or conservatory and the stove is within 2.3m of the main property

The 2.3m rule often comes into play when installing a stove in an extension. Please see the video mentioned further down the page.

If your chimney exits an extension and will use the main house for support (to gain height) then then please say YES at the next stage when you see the "extension special" drop down.

During the next stage you will be able to create your building outline, choose your stove position, add dimensions, add notes and photos if you wish, and choose the colour and diameter of your chimney.

IF YOUR LAST CODE WRITTEN DOWN (STAGE 4) IS A YES THEN DO NOT PROCEED. PLEASE CONTACT US VIA INFO@STOVEFITTERSWAREHOUSE.CO.UK AND LET US KNOW THAT YOU HAVE AN EXTENSION REQUIRING A FLUE SYSTEM. JULIAN CAN THEN CONTACT YOU AND DISCUSS FURTHER TO ENSURE WE CAN GET A DESIGN TO YOU.

What if my stove is upstairs?

Ignore this as it does not matter. Ridge height, gutter height etc. are always from the base of the stove. Essentially we are only interested in what is above your stove not below it. Upstairs in two storey house is the same for our purposes as downstairs in a bungalow ;-)

Example designs

Difficult designs (paid for consultancy service)

If your design is tricky or out of the ordinary it may be that you require a more personalised approach with extra time spent creating a plan and drawing. In this case we would request a £50 fee upfront. The fee would include up to 60 minutes extra time on your design and this time can be extended in hourly blocks (at £50 each) if required. We will let you know if we feel you would benefit from this assistance.
