Your chimney, like most chimneys, probably appears to be in fine condition on the outside. But let's take a close look at what really counts in chimney operation... the inside. 

When we look inside we can find imperfect conditions. Pieces are missing from the original clay liner and there are cracks. Mortar and bricks are loose and falling, there is excessive buildup of combustible creosote on the flue walls

Chimney defects result in home fires. It doesn't take much, a spark flitting through a crack in the chimney wall into the attic, a chimney ember igniting a creosote fire which then climbs the full height of the chimney or simply excessive heat reflected through the wall


We install UL listed stainless steel liners to restore and revitalize your chimney. Below find a sample of a stainless steel liner system.

Flue tiles

The purpose of a liner is to remove the byproducts of combustion to the outside atmosphere and to protect the mortar joints and bricks. The chemical make up of the mortar is alkaline and flue gases are acidic. When the flue gases come into contact with the mortar joints, they begin to break down the structural strength of the joints causing premature chimney failure.



 

 

 

 

In addition, if the flue becomes blocked it can cause the heating appliance to run less efficiently.

Lastly and most importantly, there exists the possibility of flow reversal of the discharged flue gases within the chimney. This flow reversal could cause carbon monoxide to enter the living spaces. And as it is well known, carbon monoxide is a "Silent Killer", you cannot see, smell or taste it.
