Installing a chimney through two stories.


Hi all,

I'm putting a new chimney (& wood stove) in the basement. It is a stainless steel, insulated chimeny (selkirk/supervent). The manufacturer supplies a ceiling installation kit which includes the support for the chimney, a stove pipe adapter, and an insulation shield for in the attic.

Here is my conundrum. The kit assumes you are putting the chimney through one ceiling. I will be going through two "ceilings". The basement ceiling, which is also the floor of my bedroom closet, and the ceiling in my bedroom closet. I know the chimney support will have to go in the closet floor to hold up the weight of the chimney, and I know the insulation shield will have to go in the attic. What to I put on the closet ceiling to finish the installation?

Thanks!

Should be as easy as buying a second installation kit for the required parts.

Yes you have to buy a second kit, that's all

All you will need to purchase for the additional ceiling is a firestop radiation shield. Check your installation instructions should explain.

I'm doing a similar project, I'm not sure what brand you're using but they probably all install in a similar manner; Duravent has a good diagram of what you're doing on page 8 of their Duraplus manual http://www.duravent.com/docs/product/L119_Apr2011.pdf

Thanks, shadetree. That's exactly what I was looking for. Buying a 2nd kit would have included a lot of extra parts I don't need/can't use - the duravent instructions show going through an intermediate floor, so I just have to find the equivalent part from my manufacturer.

Cheers!
