Wood Stove Installation

I am installing a Franklin Stove in my house, in front of a window which I've already removed and filled the space with durock. Is there something else I should do there? What do I need for stovepipe? What does my clearance need to be from the house and above the roof? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you know the stove manufacturer? Many manufacturers have a web site which will list national codes for clearances to combustables for their products. I would go to a local stove shop, ask them these questions and purchase the duct work from them. Do not forget about the hearth. Do you have a permit?

Thank you for the reply. I am not finding a manufacture stamp anywhere on the stove, but the blower is "MagicHeat". I contacted a fireplace business in my area, and they were most unhelpful. Perhaps I will expand my area to search for another. I would just as soon hire someone to come in and install it for me, but I also seem to be having trouble finding a business that offers that particular service.

type in wood stove installation clearances on your search engine and you'll find some good sites and info.
The duroc is suppose to have an inch air vent clearance between it and the wall. Then the stove has to be placed 8 to 16 inches out from the duroc and on a hearth and that spacing depends on your stove radiation rating.
I got the same problem trying to find the rating on an Aurora wood stove to see how close I can get to my walls.
