Chimney Liner Repair & Relining

Most people don’t think much about their chimney liners until problems arise. A damaged chimney liner can cause dangerous operating conditions and threaten the safety of your home and family, so it’s best to stay on top of this critical chimney component.

The Chimney Guys offers chimney liner repair, resurfacing and new stainless-steel liner installation. We also install furnace flue liners. Here’s how we can help you.

Chimney liner installation in Pickerington OH & Delaware OHWhat Is a Chimney Liner?

Chimney liners are most commonly made of stainless steel, clay tiles or a poured-in-place compound. They’re designed to do three important jobs:

  1. Provide a smooth path for smoke to draft
  2. Contain deadly carbon monoxide and other combustion gases
  3. Keep intense heat and flames away from the chimney masonry and the home

How Chimney Liners Become Damaged

Common causes of chimney liner damage in Columbus homes include:

  • Chimney fires
  • Long-term contact with acids from creosote and combustion gases
  • Poor-quality liner materials
  • Intruding water
  • Old age

Chimney Liner Repair

Clay and poured-in-place chimney liners can often be repaired by filling in gaps and breaks. For clay tile liners, we like to use HeatShield Cerfractory Flue Sealant, which does a fantastic job of adding new material to the spaces in decayed mortar joints.

Liners made of strong stainless steel can replace older damaged ones; they can also be used in flues with damaged poured-in-place liners. For clay tile liners, the HeatShield process adds a strong layer of protection to the entire flue, smoothing out rough edges and filling in gaps and breaks.

When Drafting a New Appliance

If you add a new heating appliance to your chimney system, such as a fireplace insert, or if you connect a furnace or hot water heater to your chimney, it is important to hire a certified expert to get the job done.

Our knowledgeable technicians will ensure that the flue is the correct size to vent the new appliance. Depending on several factors, a new chimney liner may be needed to ensure performance and safety meet superior standards.

Why We Recommend Stainless-Steel Chimney Liners

In most cases, a new stainless-steel chimney liner is the right choice for safety, economy and top performance. Stainless steel is a durable material that’s lightweight and easy to shape to fit virtually any flue design.

These liners resist the buildup of creosote, thereby reducing the likelihood of chimney fires. Additionally, their smooth surfaces allow smoke and gases to draft efficiently.

Chimney Liner Inspection

Weak drafting and smoke backups are signs that there may be a problem with your chimney liner. Broken pieces of tile in the firebox means there definitely is a problem with a clay tile liner. Watch for these signs, but rely on a professional chimney inspection to determine the exact condition of your liner.

The Chimney Guys provides video chimney inspections of all types of chimney liners. After an inspection, we can advise you on the best course of action to solve the problem you’re having.
