  10. The fact you can see the brick colour means its burning clean, if you want them discoloured burn wet wood🤣. joking aside I doubt theres a paint would last on a refractory material
  11. If you cover the beam if its to close to comply with distance to combustables there has to be spacers so theres an air gap between the beam and metal , it also has to be a certan thickness metal...
  12. If that steel to concrete adaptor fits the id of existing flue you will loose the socket up effect so moisture/tar running down can seep through the joint and run down the outside of the metal flue.
