How Will a Liner Help My Chimney?
When chimneys get old or are not maintained properly they can deteriorate and create hazardous conditions. Cracked tiles and deteriorating masonry can allow hazardous gases or even fire to enter your house. In order to remedy these situations there are two things that can be done. The entire existing chimney can be torn down and rebuilt, or you can reline your chimney with a stainless steel or aluminum insert.
Maximum Chimney stainless steel Liner are specifically designed to solve problems which may occur in gas, oil or solid fuel chimneys.
REASONS TO RELINE:
- To repair damage to the chimney liner caused by a chimney fire, water damage, lightning strikes or simple settling of the home.
- To upgrade older chimneys which were constructed without chimney liners. This is incredibly important for the safety and enjoyment of your system.
- To replace worn, deteriorated liners that may allow smoke, creosote or condensation to seep through the chimney walls.
- To properly size the chimney for a new appliance (for example: converting from oil to gas heat).
- Proper sizing–chimneys often need to be resized to perform properly. If an over-sized fireplace flue is used to vent a wood stove, excessive creosote and tar glaze may result. Additionally, the wood stove will not perform as well as it should if the flue is too big or too small.
