For our second floor addition, it is necessary to extend the flue for our wood- burning fireplace. It is a Duravent WD36. We have been unable to locate flue material that is rated for that fireplace, and are now looking for a replacement. However, the codes have changed so that the mantel would have to be raised and the sides extended in an unacceptable way. The inspector said he would grandfather us in if we could find a fireplace with the ratings we need. So, I am looking for two things.
First, flue material rated for this fireplace to extend the flue OR
Second, a replacement fireplace that is rated with 8" to combustable material on the sides and 12" on the top.
Can anyone help me?
