What Is The Purpose Of The Chimney Liner?
Every time you enjoy a fire in your fireplace or stove, combustible byproducts, gases, and smoke are produced. These byproducts and health hazards have to go somewhere, and the liner’s goal is to contain them and direct them up the chimney to the outside. A quality and well-maintained liner will do just that – but an unlined chimney or one with a deteriorating liner will allow the heat and byproducts to access nearby combustibles and enter the home. Not only that, but a chimney with a missing or damaged liner will suffer from poor draft, rendering the entire system inefficient. As you can see, a secure lining system is crucial to the safety and well being of your home and family.
Why Reline Or Resurface?
Water damage, chimney fires, or just age can cause the deterioration of your clay liner or parge coating on an unlined flue. When that happens the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code 211 says it must be replaced.
How Can Fireplace Solutions by the Chimney Sweeper Help?
When we reline chimneys, we use one of two methods, depending on the level of damage and the condition and use of the system.
