For A Safer, More Efficient Chimney, Reline With Stainless Steel
Chimney liners are an important part of the chimney system with an important job: they keep the heat and byproducts of the fire contained. Without them, the chimney’s masonry is exposed to all of the damaging and corrosive byproducts and moisture of combustion, and the risk of house fire and carbon monoxide poisoning is significant.
But believe it or not, for many years, chimneys were built without liners.
When liners began to be incorporated, they were made of clay or terra cotta tiles, which can offer years of protection and service — but unfortunately, when clay tile liners do get damaged, repairs can be costly and messy. For this reason, chimney professionals began relining with stainless steel chimney liners, which can be easily installed or replaced, and carry a lifetime guarantee.
Stainless steel liners are actually now code in New York, even if your chimney is brand new, so if you don’t have a stainless steel liner or a chimney liner at all, it’s time to have your chimney relined.
When else will you need to reline your chimney?
- When your existing liner is water or heat damaged
- When your flue needs to be resized in order to effectively vent your fireplace or stove
- When your existing liner has experienced a chimney fire
- When you’re changing fuels and your existing liner isn’t approved to vent your new fuel type
We also reline boiler/furnace flues and replace old, dangerous smoke pipe. Learn more here.
