Our Chimney Relining Experts Are Just A Phone Call Away
For many decades, chimney flue liners were made from clay tiles. While these made great liners, the heating and cooling that occurs within the chimney can lead to fractures and cracks within the liner. These cracks, fractures, and gaps can be a problem for several reasons:
- They can allow the heat of the fire to reach the mortar and masonry of the chimney itself.
- They can allow the heat of the fire to access nearby combustibles, like wood framing in walls, which can lead to a house fire.
- They can allow deposits like creosote to collect on the mortar and masonry of the chimney.
- They can create drag and reduce draft within the chimney.
- They can allow toxic gases produced by the fire to enter the air supply of the home.
Of course, there are other reasons, aside from clay tile damage, to reline your chimney. Here are the most common reasons:
- The liner you currently have is not approved for use with the fuel type you’re switching to. (For example, aluminum liners are not approved for use with wood-burning appliances).
- The liner you currently have is not sized appropriately for the appliance you’re switching to. (If the flue liner is not the right size for the appliance, you’ll experience efficiency and performance problems, as well as smoke problems).
So what can be done? If your clay tile liner is damaged or you need to have your chimney relined for other reasons, the experts here at Chimspector Venting Specialists can reline your chimney with a new stainless steel liner. These liners are approved for all fuel types, come in several sizes, are available in both rigid and flexible models, and can be slipped down into chimneys of all sizes and shapes. When you choose to reline with stainless steel, you choose a liner that will last you a lifetime — well worth the investment!
