What Are Chimney Liners?
Chimney Liners are the vent that exhaust the smoke from your fireplace, wood stove, or furnace chimneys. It is essential to the safety of the chimney system that the interior be lined with a non-porous material from top to bottom. Generally speaking there are 3 main types of chimney liners. The first and most common chimney liners are made of terracotta clay. Terracotta clay is a non-breathable masonry material that is very prone to cracking and deterioration unlike the newer stainless steel double wall chimney liners. Stainless steel liners are also used to repair or reline masonry chimneys that have cracked, crumbled, or deteriorated.
Stainless Steel Chimney Relining
The most effective liner repair for oil, gas and wood burning flues in Catskill NY is to bypass or remove the damaged terracotta clay flue tiles and replace or "reline" the chimney with a flexible stainless steel chimney liner. These types of chimney liners will not crack or deteriorate like clay flues will and often come with a Lifetime Warranty with annual chimney cleaning. It is important to hire a qualified chimney repair company when dealing with these types of repairs. It is crucial that the chimney liner size and material provide adequate draft for the system it will be venting, and fuel it will be burning.
