It would not be unsafe to do that , but that pipe won't last. I would check the local codes before you do this first though , or you may be doing it over . Also the pipe must go up past the roof a certain distance for the stove to draft correctly. Let's say it is on the side of the roof that has a gutter - it must be at least 2 ft. higher and at least 2 ft. from a horizontal line to the roof ( the steeper the roof , the higher it would be to accomplish this )

ok I live in Alaska way outside of town so code isn't an issue I just don't want it to burn my place down. why would it have to be replaced? I know a lot of people use it on the inside. is there a reason it being on the outside its going to get ruined or unusable?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
also are you saying that it needs to be two fet higher then the highest point of the roof and two feet away from the edge of the roof?
Appliance Technician: Tom Goellner, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago
The temperature difference between the inside of the pipe and the outside of the pipe is more extreme outside. The top of the pipe doesn't need to be higher than the peak of the roof. Wherever it goes past the roof vertically ( say where the gutter is , or soffit) at least 2 feet above that and at least 2 feet from the roof if you would draw a horizontal line from the top of the pipe over to the roof.

Ok I see what your saying, as for the using just regular black pipe on the outside. what's the reason for the pipe not lasting? How long will it last? prices for unsulated piping in Nome, AK are crazy expensive. so I'm trying to find a way to do it cheaper.
Appliance Technician: Tom Goellner, Home Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago
I'm aware you have extremely cold winters in Nome . All you can do is keep an eye on it and if starts rusting through replace it. Aluminum pipe would be a better option and still not as expensive as triple wall pipe
