Removing the wood stove stack off the roof

I had an old wood stove in my living room, and what stunk is that the previous owner easily had it vented through the ceiling & a stack put on the roof.

Why would anyone do that? I had to detach the stone pad in my dwelling & redo the floor; I ripped out the carpet & put the stone down. I then had to detach the vent & patch my wood ceiling. Lastly I had the stack taken off the roof. I then needed a shingle roof repair done. What wasn’t fun is that the new shingles weren’t going to be a perfect match. Also there were some areas of the roof that needed repairs, but rather than just do a shaddy patch task everywhere, it made sense to just get a whole new roof. It was over ten years old anyway. It easily was time for a new one, and my partner & I looked into all weird kinds of roofs. Spray foam roofs, flat roofs, metal roofs, etc. I ended up sticking with a shingle roof. My pal and I knew it worked & looked wonderful with the home. Rather than the reddish brown shingles, I went for more of a dark gray. By the time summer time rolled around I had enough money to get the exterior of the house be painted olive with gray trim. It now looks wonderful with the gray roof! People can’t know that my house cna look that good. It was extravagant touch ups however worth it in the end… That stupid wood stove cost me a fortune in the end.
