Chimney Liner Replacement

Do you know the condition of your chimney liner? Is the lining cracking or corroding? Don’t worry if you can’t answer these questions. Due to its location inside the flue, most fireplace owners are unaware whether their liner needs repair or relining unless they had a recent chimney inspection. Since a damaged chimney liner increases fire risk and exposure to harmful contaminants, keeping up with annual chimney inspections is critical.

Chimney Liner Replacement in Rochester, NY and Irondequoit NYFelgemacher Masonry & Chimney of Rochester provides professional chimney liner inspections, repair, and relining in the Rochester metropolitan area communities.

Why Does My Chimney Need a Liner?

A chimney liner insulates the flue and protects the masonry walls. It contains the heat and flames from the fireplace inside the chimney, so it doesn’t spread to nearby combustible building materials. Without a functioning liner, your attic, ceiling, chimney chase, and roof deck are at an increased risk of fire. A fire that starts in the chimney can quickly spread to other areas of your house, resulting in severe property damage, injuries, and even loss of life.

What is the Condition of Your Chimney Lining?

Most homes in Rochester NY, and surrounding communities have either an aluminum, cast-in-place cement, clay tile, or a stainless-steel liner. All  chimney liners will require repair or relining at some point during their lifecycle. Age, normal wear and tear, water leaks, or a chimney fire can damage the liner causing it to crack, warp, or corrode. It’s another reason why having your chimney inspected every year is so essential to fire prevention.
