Tips for Installing Black Stovepipe


When it comes to installing black stovepipe whether it’s for a chimney relining or a new stove installation Lindemann Chimney Supply wants to provide you with a few tips:

  • Use self-tapping stovepipe screws for quicker installation.
  • Stovepipe must have a minimum of three opposing screws at each joing.
  • Single wall black stovepipe has a minimum of 18″ clearance to combustibles.
  • Double wall stovepipe clearances depend on the UL Listing.
  • Some stovepipe paint may lightly smoke and/or have an odor when the stove is first fired.
  • Plan on curing new stovepipe. The homeowner should open the windows when the paint cures.
  • Even after curing stovepipe will sometimes smell when it reaches higher temperatures in the winter months.
  • Stovepipe is never to be used as anything other than a connector from the stove to the chimney.
  • Never pass stovepipe through a combustible wall unless you have a UL Listed thimble.
  • Stovepipe should always have a male/crimped end down connection into the stove.
  • Use black stovepipe only on woodstoves or coal stoves (coal stoves are hard on black pipe and it will need to be changed out more frequently).
  • We stock four stovepipes: HeatFab Saf-T Pipe, DuraBlack, Snap-Lock and Dura-Vent Double Wall DVL stovepipes.
