Why You May Need Your Chimney Liner Repaired
Our chimney liner repair is possible for different types of chimney liners and appliances. Chimney liners can be used for oil, wood, gas, pellet and coal appliances. We offer a lifetime warranty for our chimney liners, because we know that these are issues that should not be overlooked.
There are three principal reasons why you may need a new chimney liner:
- Your chimney has no clay tile chimney liner.
- The clay tile chimney liner is damaged.
- A new chimney liner is required for optimal performance and safety of a new heating unit (stove or furnace) that will be vented into the chimney.
Not having a chimney liner that is at full strength can be dangerous for both your home and your family. A faulty liner can lead to fires, because the fires can infiltrate the weak spots in the liner. If you suspect any issues, then get a professional to properly inspect the chimney. We can come to you and determine if any work needs to be done.
What To Do If You Have a Damaged Chimney Liner
If you have a damaged chimney liner, then you might be in need of a professional repair. We recommend you do not use the chimney until the liner repair work has been complete. House fires and carbon monoxide poisoning are two dangers one might face when a chimney liner is damaged. Even one small crack or break can lead to a house fire, so it is crucial to get this work done when you notice it. And it is a good reminder to have a professional inspection of the chimney from time to time, so you can notice these things. Here are several ways you can address the damaged chimney liner.
Install a New Chimney Liner
We can install a new stainless-steel chimney liner inside the existing chimney. A new liner is the most common path for a damaged liner, since it ensures that the entire chimney is safe. No matter what type of fuel you are burning, a stainless-steel liner provides elite protection and will last a long time.
Pout in a Cast-In Place Flue Liner
Another common way to fix a damaged chimney liner is to hire chimney pros to pour a cast-in-place liner. Chimney professionals have the tools to handle this job and will pour a cement-like mixture along the outer walls of the passageways in the chimney. This type of liner produces a well-insulated flue and can improve a chimney's structural integrity. This sort of job also can promote a cleaner burn, which means less of a buildup of creosote.
Clay Liner Replacement
Many older fireplaces are built with clay tile flues, because it was a more inexpensive material and lasts for decades. However, at some point the tiles and the mortar joints between them begin to deteriorate. This is when there needs to be a repair or replacement of the chimney liner. Unfortunately, repairing or replacing clay tiles is a very costly job, because the work is difficult and long. For the most part, sections of the chimney will need to be torn out. In many cases, the smart move is to install a new stainless-steel chimney liner.
