I need a chimney installed to code for a new wood stove (meets all local
codes). I live in a small town and have contacted a local HVAC guy who
never returned my call. Also talked to a local "one person contractor" who
said he would come over and give me an estimate - two different times, but
never showed up either time.
This chimney will need to stand about 11 ft. high from the roof, being as
it will be toward the edge of the roof and the 9 ft. high peak of the roof
is within 10 ft. of the chimney. To make installation more interesting, my
roof is at about a 45 degree angle, so probably can't stand on roof to
install it. Probably need high-lift equipment or whatever? Also I assume
that this chimney will need two or more supports for high wind situations?
There are some larger cities nearby with plenty of contractors. I was
thinking I would have better luck there.
Suggestions for best type of contractor to do this work?
I was thinking a contractor with a "business office" (rather than someone
who works out of their home) would be more responsible and show up when
they said they would? And I was thinking that a larger contractor company
would have to equipment (high-lift) to do this work?
I suppose I could also go to various wood stove sales businesses in the
larger cities and ask who would be best to install the chimney?
