How do i get an airtight seal from my insert to chimney without installing pipe all the way up the existing brick chimney?
For an insert to work at optimal efficiency, you would need to run the liner all the way to the top. That is also the only way you can have a sealed collar plate with rain cap at the top of chimney.

I have a Majestic brand wood fireplace insert with an 8 inch prefab pipe chimney. Is it possible to line this with a 7 inch SS flexible liner and attach it to the existing fireplace with a bottom plate?
You can not and still maintain its UL listing. Pre-fab fireplace such as yours are tested along with the chimney to UL 127 and can not utilize a chimney liner (UL1777). Those liners are for general use or for stoves or inserts. In your case, the fireplace and the chimney system are considered all the same unit.

I am looking for double-wall chimney pipe for a 48" Majestic wood burning fireplace. This unit is about 25 years old. The old chimney measures 8" inner SS, 12.5" - 13" outer galvanized, longest pieces possible. I lost the top 12 ft or so of my chimney to a storm. Do you carry this product?
Unfortunately, this chimney system has been discontinued and we do not have any remaining stock.

I have an unlined masonry chimney for our open wood burning fireplace. What stainless steel liner would be recommended so that I do not have to rebuild the chimney to install clay tiles? Thank you.
Please note that proper relining will require removal of any broken flue tile. Once removed, the inner brick measurements would need to be provided in addition to the width and height of the fireplace opening and overall height of the chimney, measured from the hearth floor. You will also need to insulate the flexible chimney liner using a product like TherMix
or one of the other insulation kits

I have an old brick home. It had a wall opening for a wood stove. My woodstove flue is 8". Can I use a stainless steel flex pipe kit? If not, what is a cheap alternative to vent my woodstove?
You could indeed use stainless steel flex vent for your stove, provided you have a masonry chimney that the liner will be running through. If this is the case, please provide the height from the top of the stove to the top of the chimney, and I will be happy to suggest a liner kit.

What type of pipe is required for a Yulkon Stove? I would like to use a 3" pipe. Your help would be appreciated.
I am unfamiliar with this brand of stove, but I was able to locate a "Yukon" brand of portable camping stoves. If this is the case, I do not see where these stoves can use 3" stovepipe. Additionally, we do not have access to stovepipe smaller than 5" in diameter.

I have a wood burning stove that had a brick chimney. The brick chimney was falling down so I had it demoed. I would like to back with an insulated stove pipe that I can build siding around. I can add pics if need be. However, I think I could just give the measurements to a professional and order the parts I need. Can you help me?
With the brick chimney no longer in place, the use of a prefabricated chimney system would be ideal. In order for us to create a comprehensive list of components, and to build a quote, please fill out our Chimney Pipe Design & Quote Form

Is there something that can be fitted to the square terracotta chimney of an outdoor fireplace that will extend the height? The smoke from my neighbors fires blows directly into my open windows, so I'm thinking higher might help.

Our builder suggests using double walled stainless steel pipes for the direct-vent propane fireplace in our new house. What do you recommend? It is a Green Smart 2, model 864TRV by Fireplacextrordinair.
That is correct, you will indeed need to utilize double wall direct vent pipe. From what I can tell in the manual for your unit, it appears the fireplace can utilize Dura-Vent Direct Vent Pro pipe. Below, please find a form that can be filled out for the request of a custom chimney quote:

is Monessen Class A Chimney Pipe compatible with DuraVent chimney pipe?
Unfortunately, no. The manufacturers do not use the same configuration for their attachment hems and lances. As such, only components from the same brand will work with one another.

I need a 4 inch diameter steel round stove pipe cleaning brush. Do you carry these?
If you have stovepipe that needs cleaning, using a steel brush will scratch the interior walls and damage the pipe. It is recommended to use plastic or poly brushes for manufactured chimney or stovepipe as this will not scratch the steel inner walls. In addition, it is a general rule of thumb to oversize the brush by 1", so the Schaefer Plastic Round Chimney Cleaning Brush
would be a good option as several sizes are available. If you do not see your size, it is recommended to cut the bristles down to the appropriate diameter. If you must have a wire brush, this is available here.

When using an oval liner, should the adapter be sized so that the liner fits over the adapter or inside of the adapter?
When using sleeves and adapters, the male end of the liner should always be facing back towards the unit. This allows condensation to run back inside of the appliance as opposed to down the exterior of the liner itself.

How long does a gas liner last?
While longevity will depend on the amount or humidity in the flue gases, the typical liner can last for 20 to 25 years under normal conditions. In extreme circumstances where high humidity is present, the life expectancy can be cut in half.

We have a Comfort Glow B42LI-M wood burning box. First flue liner needs to be offset elbow. Should inner liner go inside outlet on box or should it be outside?
The general rule of thumb is for vent pipe to be installed male end down. So, the liner would go inside the flue outlet. Of course, most factory boxes require specific brands of pipe that feature locking tabs and ensure a proper fit/connection.
