Enjoy The Safety & Energy Benefits Of A Stainless Steel Chimney Liner!
Upon discovering that a chimney’s original terracotta flue tile liner is cracked or damaged, trained chimney professionals often recommend that a masonry chimney be relined with a new stainless steel liner.
If one of the following describes your chimney, a new stainless steel liner could be incredibly beneficial to you:
1. Damaged Flue Liner: If it has been determined that your masonry chimney’s terracotta flue liners are cracked, damaged, or unsafe, a stainless steel chimney liner is the easiest, quickest, and most effective way to make your chimney safe again. A damaged terracotta flue liner should not be ignored, as it could cause a fire or leak carbon monoxide into your home.
2. Unlined Chimney: If your chimney has no liner at all, your chimney is not only not up to code, but it is unfit for any fires. Unlined chimneys greatly increase the risk of accidental fires or carbon monoxide leakage, not to mention poor chimney draft performance and several other undesirable realities.
3. Unlined Wood Stove Insert (Slammer): If you have a wood-burning stove insert that was just pushed into the fireplace without it’s own separate stainless steel liner, you should have a stainless steel liner installed. While just shoving the stove into the fireplace used to be accepted as the proper installation technique in the 80s, years of accidents and loss of life and property have taught the hearth industry that burning fires in an unlined wood stove insert (a.k.a. a “slammer”) is not a good idea.
We Can Help!
Having your chimney professionally lined has lots of benefits—not only will it do the very important job of protecting your family and your property when you burn fires, but it will also help prevent carbon monoxide intrusion, protect your chimney from corrosion, help with draft, and extend your chimney system’s usable life.
If you live in the Sacramento area and one of the three situations above describes your chimney, we highly recommend having a new, fully-insulated, stainless steel flue liner installed. Relining a masonry chimney properly is a precise and exacting process with many steps. Because the slightest oversight could be disastrous, only qualified and licensed companies who specialize in repairs of this nature should be hired to reline your chimney.
As an alternative to a new stainless steel liner, we may be able to restore your chimney’s damaged clay liner by using HeatShield®, a cerfractory sealant that can eliminate many of the dangers of an unlined chimney. You can read more about this product on our HeatShield® page.
