When a clay flue liner cracks or fails, smoke, carbon monoxide, creosote, and other products of combustion can seep through your chimney and leak into your home, which presents a hazard to your home’s occupants. Damaged or improperly constructed chimneys can also let water into the interior of a home, which over time can create water damage to the walls and framing of the house. In the worst case scenario, a damaged chimney can even cause a chimney fire or even a house fire.
The National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) code 211 says that cracked or damaged chimney flue tiles should be repaired. This can be expensive, as it involves destroying and replacing part or all of the chimney. Patching the cracks is a temporary solution, since the problem will invariably present itself again, in most cases sooner rather than later.
Chimney relining, when done properly, offers a safe, inexpensive, and long term solution, and complies with all NFPA standards as well as CT and RI building codes. A properly installed chimney liner makes the chimney air tight and water tight, and costs much less than a full chimney rebuild. All of our chimney liners come with a lifetime warranty.
