Flue leak

Filed under: Current Projects — admin @ 8:37 am

Just a simply job really, the flue collar on top of the stench pipe has started to leak so we took a look.

The flue collar that was used was a cheap version made of tin and not lead, in addition it was not installed correctly. This had caused water ingression around the edges of the flue. Over time this water ingression has caused the underlying felt to rot.

We replaced the damaged felt and re-battened around the area and installed a new flue collar.
