Fitting Flexible Flue Liners For Stoves

By Andy the stuff doer

The full flue liner article starts here and the video is on this page

Please leave comments or questions below.

Note: I’m currently looking in to, what problems might be caused by not sealing the top of the liner to the plate. So keep checking back, leave a comment below (wordpress should be able to email you when I’ve added to this post) or join us on facebook for updates. 


Chimney pots refitted
Chimney pots all straight now

v s to whitbyYou’ll see from the previous Chimney Jenga Post that our chimney stacks have shifted a little. This occurred quite a while ago, probably pre Victoria if the construction of the wall built to hide it is a guide. Now the scaffolding is up Stuff Doer has discovered a rather cheeky effect on the chimney pots that we had been unaware of. The five foot high pots have been giving the “Vs” to Whitby for years. You’ll be pleased to hear our cottage is now more respectful of it’s surroundings since the builders have been up and installed the liners and re-sited the pots. How the Stuff Doer got those photos is beyond me. He’s not allowed on the roof!!!

  1. Hmm, I’ve also noticed the gratuitous “view” shots on the video. For builders they make bloomin good cameramen!!!

  2. Having watched your video with much interest, I am contemplating installing a flue liner for a wood burner myself. I live up North, Sale, and would like to pass a little info to anyone attempting to install a wood burner themselves in this area. For the privilege of doing said work my self, the local council require a fee of £405.52p how they can justify this is beyond me. So, people from Sale beware, the council is out to bleed you.

  3. Hi Len, That is absolutely outrageous!! It could be worth having a look at what other councils charge. I had around £160 in my head. And then challenge their price.

  4. Great video & interesting article.

  6. Hi Antony, Appologies for the late reply. They are in the pipeline.
