A Faulty Chimney Liner May Be The Problem
 
A Brick and wall fires can all be attributed to a faulty lining inside                                                   your chimney. A chimney with a sound liner will allow the                                                            chimney to function the way it is supposed to: to convey the                                                       products of combustion to the atmosphere.
Clay tile chimney liners can be damaged by lightening, settling,                                                  storms, but the most common reason for damage is a result of                                                  chimney fires. In addition, many older homes may not have a                                                  chimney liner at all and is at a greater risk for structural damage                                                  from a fire or excess condensation.

_______________________________________________________________________
Stainless Steel Chimney Liners
This method of relining involves installing a round or oval stainless steel liner in the chimney. The liner can be either rigid or flexible; flexible liners are used for chimneys with offsets. Stainless steel liners are used for wood stoves, fireplaces, gas and oil appliance installations. Pro Sweep offers UL Listed stainless steel lining systems that come with a manufacturer's Lifetime Warranty. Flexible stainless steel chimney liners can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit any chimney.


Aluminum Chimney Liners - This method is similar to stainless steel, but the liner is made of aluminum. Aluminum liners can only be used to vent certain types of gas appliances. Note: Gas logs intended for installation in wood burning fireplaces may not be vented with aluminum liners.
_______________________________________________________________________
Vitreous Clay Flue Tiles - Used mainly in new construction, this method of relining may be suitable for short, straight chimneys.


Reasons to Reline a Chimney

- To repair damage to the chimney, which may have been caused by a chimney fire, lightning strike, or settling, etc.


- To upgrade old chimneys which were constructed without chimney liners.


- To replace worn, deteriorated liners, which may be allowing smoke, creosote or condensation to seep through the chimney walls.


- To properly size the chimney for a new appliance; such as converting from oil to gas heat.


- To prevent excessive creosote buildup (and risk of a chimney fire) when venting a wood stove through an existing fireplace.

A Faulty Chimney Liner May Be The Problem


Brick and wall
fires can all be attributed to a faulty lining inside your chimney. A chimney with a sound liner will allow the chimney to function the way it’s supposed to which is to convey the products of combustion to the atmosphere. In other words, your chimney should be able to allow the smoke from burning ti go up and out of your chimney without  leaking into your house.


Clay tile chimney liners can be damaged by lightening, settling and storms but the most common reason for damage is a result of chimney fires. In addition, many older homes may not have a chimney liner at all which has a greater risk for structural damage from a fire or excess condensation.
