Liner Installation

Chimney liners are one of the most important parts in your chimney, the liner actually protects both you and your home. Traditional chimney liners are made of viterous clay and are meant to stop gases from leaking back into the house and prevent, or lessen, the transfer of heat through the brick and mortar, which masonry chimneys are built with. In the United States, homes built “After 1940” were required to have a chimney liner. Houses that were built “Before 1940” were not required to have any type of liner at all. Additionally, NOW..building codes require you to replace liners when they become cracked, broken, decayed, or are just completely missing

Liner Installation

Chimney liners are one of the most important parts in your chimney, the liner actually protects both you and your home.

Traditional chimney liners are made of viterous clay and are meant to stop gases from leaking back into the house and prevent, or lessen, the transfer of heat through the brick and mortar, which masonry chimneys are built with. In the United States, homes built “After 1940” were required to have a chimney liner. Houses that were built “Before 1940” were not required to have any type of liner at all. Additionally, NOW..building codes require you to replace liners when they become cracked, broken, decayed, or are just completely missing. In fact, current Local and National building codes state, “The Flue Liner Shall Provide a Continuous Gas and Moisture-Tight Insulating Lining between the Flue Gases and the Chimney Structure.”

There are countless ways in which standard clay liners fail. Standard clay tiles fail due to age and usage, chimney fires, settling, thermal shock, freeze-thaw cycles, animal intrusion, and mother nature—just to name a few. However, each type of failure leaves behind tell tale signs of just what happened. If your liner is cracked or damaged due to a chimney fire, The INTEGRITY Chimney Team  can typically get the cost of the liner replacement/repair covered under your home owners insurance. We will work with you, and your insurance agent, to quickly get your fireplace back in safe working order!

Wood burning fireplaces, gas fireplaces, and furnaces produce a tremendous amount of heat and deadly gases. This mixture of heat and gases, combined with rain water and condensation, can damage your chimney, fireplace, and house—in fact, these gases can make you sick, even cause death. This is why the chimney liner should not be taken for granted!
