I have been wanting to put a wood stove in my house. i dont really want a through the wall that much, the location of going through the wall would look funny in realation to the house. is there a way to go throught he roof? i used a leaded pipe boot on my house for the plumbing vents. it has really worked well being able to conform to the ridges of the metal. is there any options for me thanks.

This can be done but is tricky. I'm not sure what else to say. Generally I would suggest trying to find an experience metal roofing person to do this, or perhaps the manufacturers rep for whoever installed the roof would come help guide you through this process.

I would find a local meatl center or manufacturer and ask for a heat rated pipe boot to fit the size of your new chimney. The tricky part is not getting the sealant all over yourself!

I build custom homes and before that I built metal buildings and have installed several metal roofs. They do make rubber boots that are rated for all different degrees. The rubber boot will have several options on what size hole you can cut out so that it will fit tight around the pipe that you are trying to seal off. The part of the rubber boot that attaches to the roof has a lead ring in it so that it will form to the roof. They also make metal flashing to fit around the pipe and have a storm colar that goes above the flashing on the pipe. I have found that the best way for me is to have the stove pipe come out near the ridge of the roof and use the metal flashing. If you slide the up hill side of the flashing under the ridge cap there is no way for water to get under the flashing. You must use roofing caulk for both type of flashings. A old man told me one time that if you pretend your a rain drop and start at the top of the roof and go down and off the the end of the roof without getting under a piece of metal or flashing that it will not leak. Over the years I have pretended to be a rain drop alot. Hope this will help you...ZC
