Chimney Relining Services

Your flue liner is a key component of your chimney system — it protects the masonry in your chimney; helps allow the harmful gases and byproducts of combustion to vent safely; and buffers nearby combustible materials from excess heat.

As a homeowner, you want your liner to be working properly, not just because it’s protecting your investment, but because it’s protecting you and the other people inside of that home.

Common Reasons For Having A Chimney Relined

  • Many flue liners have been built over the years with clay tile, which, with proper maintenance, can be incredibly effective. But after years of bearing the brunt of combustion — often water, too — clay tiles can crack, split and begin to flake (spalling), leaving your masonry open to damage and your home open to the intrusion of harmful byproducts. This is one of the more common reasons homeowners choose to have their chimney relined with a stainless steel liner. Chimneys with aluminum flue liners are also often relined with stainless steel, since aluminum can rust and corrode relatively early on.
  • The installation of new appliances can also bring the need for a resized flue in order to function properly, and stainless steel liners are an effective way to resize.
  • Every chimney must have a liner! Historic homes may have chimneys that weren’t built with a liner at all — and not only is this inefficient, it’s unsafe. Unlined flues are a problem that should be addressed as soon as possible.

Why We Use Different Chimney Lining Systems

Home Safe Hearth & Chimney Inc. has used different stainless steel chimney lining systems for over 20 years. These products are highly durable, high-quality liners that we are proud to install.

They won’t rust; they resist cracking and pitting; and stand up to wood-, gas-, and oil-burning appliances. They are particularly effective at withstanding gas appliances, which give off corrosive byproducts (including hydrochloric acid).

When installed by a Chimney Safety Institute of America-certified technician — like the ones at Home Safe Hearth & Chimney, Inc. — these high-quality stainless steel chimney lining systems carry long-term written warranties.
Relining your chimney may not be your only option if your clay liner is damaged. We also install HeatShield®, a durable sealant, which can be a cost-effective and efficient way to restore a flue liner. Whether it’s stainless steel or Heatshield®, Home Safe’s certified technicians are licensed to do the work efficiently, properly, and with the customer in mind.
