Chimney design:: Add your property details
Add your property details (simple 4-stage process)
1. Choose your roof style and make a note of the two digit code
Also make a note of...
Make note of the pitch of your roof (approx. is fine). You will need this later.
2. How will you connect to your stove? Make a note of the 4-digit code.
Note: Vitreous pipe is thin steel, extremely hot and has to be kept 15-18" away from combustible materials and plasterboard. Twin wall pipe (insulated inside) can be as close as 5cm. Even if choosing twin wall insulated pipe you still have the stove distance to combustibles to think about and stoves can often need 50cm+ clearances behind to plasterboard or combustible materials. The answer is usually a slim wall-shield that creates an isolating air gap between board and wall.
See this article if your wall is plasterboard/combustible material (also contains shielding ideas).
3. Where does the chimney leave the building? Make a note of the 4-digit code.
4. Is your chimney in an extension? Ignore this section if not...
During the next stage you will be able to create your building outline, choose your stove position, add dimensions, add notes and photos if you wish, and choose the colour and diameter of your chimney.
What if my stove is upstairs?
Ridge height, gutter height etc. are always from the base of the stove. Essentially we are only interested in what is above your stove not below it. If in your usual two storey property then treat a stove in an upstairs room same as for a bungalow ;-)
Difficult designs (paid for consultancy service)
If your design is tricky or out of the ordinary it may be that you require a more personalised approach with extra time spent creating a plan and drawing. In this case we would request a £50 fee upfront. The fee would include up to 60 minutes extra time on your design and this time can be extended in hourly blocks (at £50 each) if required. We will let you know if we feel you would benefit from this assistance. This is rare and only ever used in extreme situations or if you need a lot of help ;-)
