Rubber shed roof and installing a wood burner
Hi there, I am in the process of building a rather modest 20ftx10ft shed from old pallets, its going really well but I'm a little stuck on the woodburner.
What do I need to do to install one safely? I have a recycled propane gas bottle that has already been made into a wood burner and 15ft of 4" galvanised steel tubing coming my way to be used as the flue. The roof of the shed is going to be covered with EPDM rubber instead of felt as I want it to last longer.
My concern is the passing of the flue through the roof. I've seen these rubber flue collars and figured that would probably be enough to protect against the heat of the flue but wondered on what else I should use.
The wood burner is to be set on a 1.5m square by 2.5" thick yorkstone slab and surrounded at base level with fire retardent ply so that should hopefully be more than good enough... just the roof exit is what i'm worried about, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.Return to Shed Roof hub page
