Alpine Chimney Sweeps shall not be liable for any costs for removal or re-installation of the chase cover or any liability for special consequential or incidental damages in any way related to or arising out of defects or damages caused by incidences not covered by this warranty.

Chimney Caps / Top Mount Dampers

All Chimney Caps / Top Mount Dampers are designed up to the current codes and standards as well as designed by the proper code methods for each style of chimney item. All chimney caps / top mount dampers are lifetime guaranteed with an Alpine Chimney Sweeps professional install. Caps are not warranted from high winds over 50 miles per hour. Any falling debris, tree or vine growth touching the chimney cap, or any chimney deterioration of the chimney that causes the supports to come loose is not covered by the Alpine Chimney Sweeps warranty. There is a lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion from the manufacturer.

Waterproofing / Chimney Leaks

10 Year Warranty, 100% vapor permeable, environmentally friendly non glossy look, efflorescence / stain protections, mildew / fungus resistance, freeze / thaw protection, water based environmentally friendly. Stops most chimney leaks. Alpine Chimney Sweeps uses the solvent base “Chimney Saver Waterproofing”. Water leak repairs are not 100% guaranteed if a leak has occurred. Alpine Chimney Sweeps Inc. estimates the best products (chimneysaver.com) to apply to prevent and stop leaks. If the exterior chimney chases mortar and brick are saturated and water is pouring into the home, then there is a possibility that you might need to replace the grout or rebuild the entire chimney. Our first step is to always apply the best repair products on the market for chimney leaks.

Refractory Panels

We suggest replacing any panels that are cracked completely into separate pieces. Not replacing these panels can cause the warranty to be voided on the fireplace and flue pipe. Panels are made to only absorb heat and will need to be replaced when cracking has completely separated the panel into two(2) or more pieces. Hairline cracks are not an issue or a fire hazard. No warranty on replacement refractory panels due to the usage of the fireplace is out of Alpine Chimney Sweeps’ control. Gates, cracked panels, wood being placed into an already burning fire sometimes falls back onto the panels creating cracks. Panels are made to break and absorb heat, therefore no warranty is given. However, if a panel breaks (not a stress crack), within the first couple of fires, call Alpine Chimney Sweeps to discuss a visit.

The Lifetime Lining System

This warranty applies as long as the purchaser owns the home in which the Lifetime Lining System, stainless steel chimney liner was originally installed.

The warranty is subject to the following conditions:

1. Liner and components must be installed by a certified solid fuel professional, and in accordance with these noted instructions.

2. Lining and components are intended for use in lining and re-lining masonry chimneys that vent tested and are approved and listed residential appliances for which Lifetime Lining Systems stainless steel chimney liner and components are intended.

3. Annual inspections and maintenance after the date of the installation continue once every 12 months by a certified chimney sweep or a quality, solid fuel professional.

4. The chimney must have a Lifetime Chimney Supply chimney cap.

5. Corrosive chemicals and chimney cleaners must not be used. Use of these products will void the warranty.

6. Please note driftwood wood pellets containing salt treated lumber and plastics. The chimney sweeping log and trash must not be burned, doing so will void the warranty.

7. The maintenance record must be up to date.

8. Never use a metal chimney brush. We strongly recommend the use of a plastic bristle chimney cleaning brush, as a metal brush damages the liner and will void the warranty.

9. In case of a chimney fire, the liner must be inspected and cleaned by a certified chimney sweep professional or a qualified solid fuel professional before reuse.
