Chimney Liner Replacement
What is a chimney liner?
Most masonry chimneys are constructed with an inner liner of clay tiles. The purpose of this liner is to keep the heat of flue gases inside the chimney so the chimney can't overheat the nearby combustible material such as the framing and the walls of your house, which could possibly cause a fire.
The liner also keeps carbon monoxide, moisture, smoke, creosote, and other products of combustion from seeping through the bricks and mortar of your chimney and leaking into your home. As you can see, a secure lining system is crucial to the safety and well-being of your home and family.
This brings us to a chimney relining system. What is it? Simple. It's what you need when the original clay tile liner was either never installed, or when the tile lining cracks, crumbles and deteriorates over time. Water damage, chimney fires, or just age can cause the deterioration of your clay liner. When that happens, the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) code 211 says it must be replaced. The most popular, effective, and economical way to reline your chimney is with a UL listed stainless steel relining pipe.
