wood burner internal chimney
« on: October 05, 2017, 11:28:15 AM »
Anyone know or can recommend a fitter?

After saying there are not any regs in Italy (untrue you need a certificate and have the installation checked as in UK ) I have lost faith in my usual team and am looking for someone who specializes in this work.

I am ordering all the kit separately as I want a very high quality twin walled kit and something that clips together avoiding leaks in cheaper kit and also as the house can get damp in the winter when we are not there the chimney needs to resist rusting.

a third rate mind follows the crowd

I'd be interested in a decent fitter too.

We had our stuffa fitted a couple of years ago & it burns fine, there's no wood smell in the house, BUT we get a lot of soot coming back down the chimney & into the lounge, we sometimes get water leaking out of the chimney & the whole area of the ceiling around the chimney is discoloured & breaking up. In other words, the guy that fitted it clearly didn't know what he was doing....

I suppose we could call into a stuffa supplier & see if they can check it out for us but I'd like to see if there's anyone on here that can do it first.
