View Full Version : s/s chimney liner cap question
My fireplace and boiler flues exit side-by-side through the same chimney. I just had a s/s liner put in the boiler flue. The installer removed my 14x26 s/s chimney cap (covering both flues) in order to put on the new liner rain cap, which stands too tall to put the chimney cap back on. Can I ask that the new liner cap be removed and have my 14x26 cage reinstalled to cover both flues? I need both flues covered.

get a smaller cap to go on the fireplace by itself. the cap that came with the liner is what it was tested and approved with, i would not modify it.

keep the individual caps. You may be able to modify the lid on the Fp cap to make room for the liner cap. Also, I extend the liner with a short section of stainless but only if it is tested and listed with that liner. I run a strut from the Fp cap to this extension to stabilize it so it doesn't wobble.
