We Reline Chimneys With Stainless Steel For Safety & Longevity

Chimneys are amazing in that they allow us the luxury of having a fire inside of our home. But in order to enjoy our chimneys without unnecessary risk, it’s imperative that the lining of the flue be in excellent condition.

Acting as a barrier between the inside of the chimney and the rest of the home, chimney liners help channel gas byproducts out of the space, while offering maximum protection from the heat. Liners also serve to protect the masonry of the chimney from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. Over time, flue gases and water vapor break down mortar joints from inside the chimney, where it is impossible to see without special equipment. When mortar joints have eroded or are missing, heat can transfer to nearby combustibles and carbon monoxide can leak into living spaces.

When left unaddressed, defects in the chimney’s flue liner can lead to serious health dangers. Carbon monoxide and other combustible gases are able to seep through these cracks and gaps and enter into the living space, which can cause sickness and even death. Deteriorated liners can also lead to chimney fires as well as structural damage to the flue.

We Offer A Long-Lasting Solution To Liner Trouble

The best solution to liner defects is a chimney relining service. This process involves removing the existing, damaged liner and replacing it with a new one.  At Jiminy Chimney, we are experts in chimney repair and liner installation.  We often suggest that our customers with defective liners replace them with a new stainless steel insert.  A stainless steel liner will offer optimum protection, while providing a permanent fix to the problem.

We proudly use Ventinox and DuraFlex liners when relining our customers’ chimneys. Both liners are made from flexible and durable stainless steel, approved for use with all fuels, and UL tested for safety and efficiency. DuraFlex carries a limited lifetime warranty, while Ventinox carries a lifetime warranty, so you can rest assured your liner will last for years, regardless of which you choose for your system.
