Chimney Pipe Differences - Which Brand is Best for Me?

which brand of chimney pipe is right for me

Choosing chimney pipe can be a daunting task, let us help.  Here are some common questions we get:

"I am installing completely new chimney pipe.  Which brand should I choose?" The top rated customer pick for new chimney installations is DuraTech chimney pipe.  DuraTech has a greater selection of pipe and fittings and is reasonably priced.

"I might have this professionally installed or might do this myself, which brand should I use?" Professional installers and homeowners alike prefer DuraTech Chimney pipe.

"I live in Canada, what brand of chimney pipe do I use?" DuraPlus HTC is specifically designed to meet Canadian chimney installations.

"I have a mobile/manufactured home and I want to put in a wood stove, what type of chimney pipe do I use?" DuraTech and DuraPlus are approved for use in mobile homes and manufactured houses.  We recommend using DuraPlus in mobile/manufactured homes since it runs cooler on the outside of the chimney and adds that extra margin of safety.

"If I already have a certain type of chimney pipe and I want to replace a couple of pipe lengths can I use any brand of chimney pipe?" Unfortunately, every manufacturer uses different methods to connect sections of pipe.  They not interchangeable.
