Step 7. Secure flashing by nailing along the perimeter into roof using 8d nails. If shingled roof, slide upper end and sides of roof flashing under shingles (trim if necessary), seal the top and both sides of the flashing to the roof with roof caulking.
MULTIPLE TERMINATIONS If more than one termination is located in the same chase or within the same general proxim- ity, we suggest they should be separated in distance at least 24" (610 mm) horizontally from flue center to flue center and stacked or staggered vertically at least 18"...
OFFSET CALCULATIONS Step 1. Use Offset Chart to determine amount of horizontal offset (A) and height (B) for various chimney section assemblies. Step 2. Use “Height of Chimney Only” column in The Vertical Elevation Chart to determine combinations of chimney used above return elbow to achieve desired heights.
INSTALLING OFFSETS First, review the Offset Elevation Chart and Figure 40 for reference. Step 1. Determine the offset distance where chimney is to pass through the first ceiling- dimension “A.” To find this point on your ceil- ing, first determine the center point for a verti- cal chimney following the instructions for ver- tical installation.
