How to Remove a Metal Chimney and Repair the Roof. Our new, 40-year-old house had an old metal chimney that was once connected to an old wood stove in the living room. The pipe stub that protruded through the ceiling was covered with a makeshift cardboard cap painted to match the walls. Having no interest in installing an inefficient, space-consuming stinky wood stove, Diane and I decided that the old chimney had to go. The contractor we had hired to do some remodeling work said he did not do roofing, and recommended Antique Roofing for this project. To reduce the cost, I was comfortable with repairing the hole in the ceiling after the chimney was removed and the roof repaired myself. In a second video, I will show you the process I used in patching the hole, applying heavy knockdown texture, and painting the repaired area matching the color of the surrounding ceiling paint. I hope that you find this video both entertaining and of some value for your chimney removal project.
