Chimney Flue Liner Services

Why chimney liners are important… 

A chimney flue liner is a ceramic or metal tube that is installed inside of a chimney. This liner works by keeping combustible products from entering the household interior. Chimney flue liners also protect the walls of the chimney from heat corrosion. These liners mainly come in two types: clay tiles or metal, including stainless steel. Coast to Coast Masonry provides specialized chimney liner installation services to keep Chicagoland chimneys working properly.

A chimney without a flue liner or with an old, worn-out liner can cause serious damage. Unlined chimneys are extremely dangerous, as these liners protect the house from heat transfer. Left unchecked, heat transfer can potentially cause a fire. Chimney flue liners also protect the masonry from combustion’s corrosive byproducts.

What is so corrosive about these byproducts? Flue gases are acidic in nature and will eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. This allows heat to travel rapidly to surrounding areas, and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the areas of the home. Coast to Coast Masonry’s chimney liner installation services keep your home and family safe from heat transfer, fire, and noxious gases by ensuring proper fireplace usage.

Proper installation of a flue liner, will protect your home inside and out!
