When the clay or terra cotta liner in an older chimney cracks or the mortar joints erode, it allows smoke, embers, carbon monoxide and sometimes fire to escape through the liner into the ceilings and attic space of your home. These cracks or voids are usually invisible by just looking in the chimney, but can lead to a devastating result. Our Certified Chimney Professionals use specialized camera equipment to view areas of the chimney and lining that can’t be seen from the top or bottom of the chimney.
If we discover any deficiency or problem with your liner or tile, we will immediately alert you so you can see the issue “live” on our camera system. We will also take several photos to include in the inspection report for documentation. We will make a recommendation on what kind of repair is best, and give an honest, fair estimate to repair. Our Certified Chimney Professionals can install an insulated, stainless steel liner or, in most cases, repair the existing liner or tiles with the Heatshield method. Both types of repairs carry a lifetime warranty.
There are several different types of chimney liners. However, it is essential that the liner accurately fit the size and shape of your flue and fit the needs of your fireplace, stove or heating appliance.
Terra cotta (clay): Terra cotta or clay flue tiles are the most common type of liner. The tiles are available in different shapes and sizes. Clay flue tiles are prone to cracking when exposed to chimney fires or moisture intrusion and will often need to be repaired.
The Certified Chimney Professionals at Advanced Chimney Sweep are experienced in stainless steel chimney installations. Stainless steel liners are safer and more durable than other types of liners.
Stainless steel liners will be insulated to provide additional chimney protection. A stainless-steel chimney liner also improves the heating efficiency of your fireplace or heating stove. With routine maintenance, our stainless steel chimney liners carry a Lifetime Warranty.
