Afternoon All.

Apologies if this is in the wrong section, however I couldn't find a related topic when I searched.

We recently had out sandstone chimney removed and subsequently rebuilt. The builder who took down the chimney (which he shouldn't have) also cut the flue at the roof line. The chimney has subsequently been rebuilt, but there is no flue from the roof line to the top of the chimney (about 1.5m).

We have a flue being installed in the next couple of weeks, but for the time being, is it safe to light the fire? We have all detectors and alarms in place, however I just wanted to see if this is a bad idea in the first instance?

Thanks,

Neil

Do you have a liner, clay, brick going through the stack, or are you fitting a flexi flue liner.

The flue needs to continue right through, get an insured sweep to test it.
