Many people make the mistake of purchasing a Rayburn stove without thinking of the installation, which includes the flue liners and other areas.
According to the Antique Dolls blog, numerous people are so concerned with owning an Aga or Rayburn cooker that they forget about the practicalities involved with setting them up.
Considering the chimney flue liner is a must, as there are lots of different things which can go wrong and cost homeowners a significant amount of money to put right.
"You will need a proper flue - don't underestimate this problem and make sure that you get a quote before you buy," the blog said.
Homeowners could be looking at significant costs for a five metre stainless-steel chimney flue, the source added, meaning thorough research is vital.
Lon Grossman, president of Technihouse Inspections, recently told a reader of hometownlife.com that tar should never be used to repair chimney flashing, as it cracks when dry and can let water seep into the brick work.
