Does anyone know how to fix a broken flue? I noticed it while cleaning out the stove pipe and flue insert. Here are some pictures.
Do you have any idea how this happened? The pictures look strange to me because the edge is straight and if it had broken I think the edge would be more ragged. If I didn't know when or how it happened I would be concerned that maybe there are other spots you can't see or access that are "broken" too. That happened to my neighbors. It was discovered that the flue had been installed incorrectly along the entire length of the chimney and to fix the problem they had to put an insert down the chimney. Without the insert they had a very real chance for a fire. I think I'd get a chimney guy in to check it out before I tried to fix it. I maybe being overly cautious but hey, why take a chance. Lisa
