The wrong chimney liner

Let Our Experienced Techs Help you

*Your chimney liner must be sized based on the appliance it’s serving, if the flue is too big for the device(is), the flue gases will condensate. For wood-burning appliances, this means excessive creosote buildup which can lead to chimney fires and for gas appliances this means moisture build up in the flue system which can cause the masonry to deteriorate and cause the moisture to leak out into the house. We can repair your chimney with the proper liner.

Types of chimney liners

Clay tiles

  • the most common type of masonry liners
  • Advantages of clay tiles include that they are inexpensive, readily available, and perform well if they are regularly maintained
  • Disadvantages include that they cannot rapidly absorb and evenly distribute heat during the rapid temperature rise that occurs during a chimney fire, causing the flue tiles to crack and split apart.

Metal chimney liners

  • Usually made of aluminum or stainless steel.
  • Advantages of metal coatings include that if they are correctly installed and maintained, they are incredibly safe and durable. Stainless steel is best for wood-burning, gas or oil appliances, while
  • aluminum is an alternative for specific medium efficiency gas applications.
  • A disadvantage includes that they are more expensive than clay tiles.

Cast-in-place chimney liners

  • lightweight, cement-like products that are installed inside the chimney forming a smooth, seamless, insulated passageway for the flue gases.
  • Advantages include that they can improve the structural integrity of aging chimneys and that they are permanent liners.
  • A disadvantage is that the installation is challenging.
