Thatched Roof Chimneys

Wood Burner Chimney Liners for Thatched Roofs

Installing chimney flue liners for wood burning stoves in properties with thatched roofs is a specialised job undertaken by Scarlett fireplaces across the South East.

The method of relining a thatched roof chimney for a log burner is covered in detail by part J of the UK building regulations. Chimneys must terminate at least 1.8 meters (6 feet) above the thatch. The flue liner must be insulated so that heat from the flue is not transferred to the thatch. 

Choose the Correct Liner

Scarlett Fireplaces preferred installation method for lining existing inglenook chimneys that pass through thatched roofs is to use an insulated stainless steel chimney system which has been tested to prove safe operation when installed close to combustible materials, even in the event of a chimney fire. 

For new chimneys that are built through thatched roofs, we prefer to use pumice concrete chimney liners surrounded by lightweight vermiculite concrete insulation and brickwork.
