    Keeping You Informed: 7 Reasons for a Chimney Liner Replacement

    Google+TwitterEmailFacebook

    The flue liner is one of the most important components in the overall chimney structure.  It serves the vital function of protecting the inside of the chimney from intense heat, harmful fumes and byproducts.  It also helps to reduce draft problems creating a warmer, more efficient fire for you to enjoy. When the liner has lost its ability to perform these important functions, it needs to be replaced.  Replacement is essential to protecting the home from chimney fires as well as keeping a warm fire burning within the hearth.

    Here are some common reasons for a chimney liner replacement:

    • Liner is cracked or damaged
    • Liner is determined to be too small or too large for the chimney
    • A fire has occurred inside the system
    • The home has been struck by lightning
    • Foundation settling has caused liner damage
    • Liner is very old and has deteriorated over time
    • Existing liner has been poorly installed or installed incorrectly

    In order to ensure that your wood fireplace is safe to use, it is important that you know the condition of the chimney liner. This can only be determined by a chimney inspection preferably by a licensed contractor with proven experience in the trade.
