Freezing and thawing damage is much more the issue of chimneys running up the exterior of building.
Exterior type is exposed to freezing temps that any interior chimney would never ever see...

Bill, you are making"much to do about nothing". If your chimney is sound, just add one flue, a new cap & call it a day.
