I live in a townhouse condo and recently had my -burning

Customer Question

Good Morning: I live in a townhouse condo and recently had my wood-burning fireplace inspected. The fireplace itself was passed by a WETT-certified inspector. However, he discovered that the metal extension on the exterior chimney was not long enough to be approved. The metal extension should be 3 feet and ours is only around 10 inches. Is the expense to bring this section up to safety standards our responsibility or the condo Board? So appreciate your help with this issue.
Sincerely,
Nancy Colefield

Whomever owns this metal extension must pay to have it extended.

So you have to review your condo by-laws and/or the legal description of your unit to determine who the owner is.

Do you understand what I mean?
