Why Reline Your Chimney?

Chimney relining is a great way to extend the life of your existing chimney, but it also comes with a lot of benefits. For example, relining your chimney will help reduce creosote and make your chimney safer and more efficient. If you have a wood-burning fireplace, wood stove, or oil/gas heat, your chimney liner may be decades old. As a result, it could be deteriorated and not do the best job at protecting your home from fire and smoke damage.

What is a Chimney Liner?

Chimney liners are designed to rectify any cracks or holes in the chimney flue. They are essentially a gas-tight, high temperature resistant barrier between the porus interior of the chimney, and the outside of the chimney. The chimney liner is a big piece of stainless steel that is installed inside the inside of the chimney. We suggest using stainless steel because it’s a material that will not rust, unlike other materials like galvanized steel, all chimney liners must be a special alloy of stainless steel to pass UL testing requirements to be approved as a listed chimney lining system. Not only that but homeowners can install a stainless steel chimney liner instead of having to completely replace their chimney. A chimney relining is an alternative to a complete chimney rebuild and since the lining is made of stainless steel, it’s a lot more durable than the original liner, which is typically made of clay or cement.

Do I need to replace my chimney?

In most cases you can avoid replacing your chimney entirely by installing a new chimney lining system, this is especially true in the case of masonry chimneys. Masonry chimneys are constructed in such a way that we can utilize the existing masonry cavity to install a new chimney liner within it, as opposed to completely replacing the existing lining or chimney itself. We use stainless steel chimney liners because they are the most effective way to fix bad clay flue liners. Chimney relining is a process of bypassing the existing masonry flue, or often removing it entirely to install a new flexible stainless steel chimney liner to safely vent the harmful byproducts of combustion from your home. if your chimney is not a masonry chimney and instead has a chase with a metal pipe coming out of it then chimney relining is often not a solution, in this case you would need to completely replace your factory built chimney pipe.

Why use stainless steel to reline your chimney?

A stainless steel chimney liner is one of the most important elements in keeping your chimney safe and functioning properly. If you have an old liner that is rusted or cracked, it’s important to replace it before it causes any serious damage. Using stainless steel chimney liners is the best way to protect your home from chimney fires, keeping your family safe.

Stainless steel chimney liners have a number of benefits over the old clay liners that were in use for many years. Stainless steel is a much lighter material, so the liner doesn’t add a lot of weight to the flue.
