Our Chimney Relining Services Can Restore The Efficiency & Safety Of Your Chimney System
No matter your chimney’s age or type, the metal or clay liner that lines the flue and moves the smoke and gases produced during combustion up and out of the home can undergo damage and begin to decay. As cracks and holes develop – whether they’re caused by water damage, byproduct corrosion, creosote, or just time and use – they negatively impact the safety and efficiency of the entire chimney system. These holes and cracks can allow gases and heat to move into nearby framing and insulation (where they can easily spark a fire) or even into the air supply in the home (where they can cause health problems and even death).
Additionally, a liner with cracks and holes will be inefficient and ineffective. That’s why any liner damage should be addressed immediately. But how can you know what condition your chimney liner is in? After all, it’s out of plain view. Schedule a professional chimney inspection!
Chimney inspections and evaluations are recommended by all of the industry’s leading organizations, including the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Both organizations state that, no matter how your system is performing or how rarely it’s used, you should schedule an inspection each and every year.
When an inspection is performed by a CSIA-certified professional, all of the readily accessible parts of the chimney and attached appliance will be inspected and checked for condition, functionality, and safety. We’ll look at the flue liner using video scanning technology and determine whether or not the flue liner can still properly perform its duties. If not, we’ll make recommendations for a reline.
Do All Chimneys Have Liners?
Although a damaged liner is incredibly dangerous and should be addressed immediately, a missing liner, naturally, is even more dangerous. It might not be common knowledge but chimneys haven’t always been constructed with flue liners. As a result, countless fires occurred over the years, and it was determined that building a chimney without a liner was “little less than criminal.” If your chimney is missing a liner, it’s imperative that you have it lined before enjoying a fire in your fireplace or stove.
Here at Chimney Doctors of Colorado, we reline chimneys with Simpson Dura Vent stainless steel liners. As their name implies, these liners have proven to be incredibly durable, and can be used to vent all fuels. When you invest in a Dura Vent liner, you can expect years of highly effective service, whether you have a gas, wood, or pellet stove, fireplace, or insert.
