Fireplace flue liner

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question. Can a cracked clay lined masonry flue be lined with stovepipe? I did a job a few months back where the fireplace flue liner was cracked. The seller, who said he is a contractor, refused to get a Chimney Sweep to fix it and said that he would do it himself.

To make a very long story shorter, I went out yesterday and none of the work on the fireplace was done. The seller said it would be finished by closing, which is today.

I just got a picture from the buyer showing the flue being line with what looks like stovepipe. This seems like double the work, plus I'm not even sure if he's going to get it into the smoke-shelf. Has anyone ever seen this before?

Sorry that the picture is sideways. I can't figure out how to flip it.
