Best Insulated Chimney Pipe
Insulated chimney pipe – how to isolate flue to go through the roof. Many times when we will install a chimney we find that there is no forecast vent or flue force through which to pass the tube, so it has to pierce the roof, which can be made of tile, sheet sandwich, corrugated iron or similar material, through which pass the tube for the evacuation of smoke from our chimney.
Besides the consider cones widely commented on installing the insulated chimney pipe facing the chimney has good draft and work well, it is also an important question, how to isolate the tube that goes through the roof, because if we do not do well we can have leaks, and as we know, water and iron do not get along, which can make us such water estrone the fireplace. The correct way to do the insulation when the tube goes through the roof, depend on how we will do the installation.

If when we go outside the house with the chimney flue, we plan to put double-walled tube for the same make of aisalmiento, the ending is different if we are going to do work. By placing double-walled tube on the outside, we do around the tube, where we have the hole, a Poyato cement, it is best quick-setting cement, to avoid that water can seep through said hole when running through the tile. At the time, we painted rubber bonding between the cement and insulated chimney pipe quickly, giving it a couple of passes on different days using fiber-rubber paint, so that it a well, and not off by heat.
Considering to divert the direction of the waters of the slope of the tiles that will give the flue exiting the roof so, we will avoid the different ways in which you can enter the rainwater between the tube and the work, which can be vertically when the rain hits the tube and runs through the same, for this we painted rubber union and prevent us get water from it. With the Poyato will prevent the water flowing through the tile near the roof insulated chimney pipe, making a Marram that being at different heights will prevent us from water. And by diverting the waters coming down that slope we get that much water does not accumulate near the vent and thus avoid possible leaks of water between the flue and the work.
