Chimney Relining With Thermocrete
Problems with chimney liners are serious and should be addressed as soon as they become known. The best way to be aware of the condition of your chimney liner is with an annual inspection and by our crew. Chimney relining with Thermocrete may be needed.
Chimney Sweep Inc., of Lakeside, CA, provides chimney relining services throughout the San Diego region. We’ll determine exactly what’s happening with your liner and perform the work necessary to restore safety and efficiency.
The Job of a Chimney Liner
Chimney liners run the full length of the flue above the smoke chamber and perform several critical functions:
Provide a smooth drafting channel for smoke
Broken, chipped and jagged liners impede drafting and can slow down the movement of smoke. They may also allow smoke to seep into living areas of the home.
Protect the Chimney Masonry and Materials of the House From Intense Heat and Flames
A damaged chimney liner will allow extreme heat and flames (in the event of a chimney fire) to come into contact with the chimney structure and adjacent parts of the house.
Contain Dangerous Carbon Monoxide and Other Combustion Gases
Carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious concern any time a chimney liner is damaged.
How To Know if Your Chimney Needs Relining or Liner Repair
Because chimney liners are in places the average person can’t see, the only way to know if there’s damage and the extent of the damage is with a professional chimney inspection.
However, if you’ve experienced one or more chimney fires or if you notice that chunks of the liner have fallen into the firebox, you can be fairly certain some type of liner damage is present. This is the time to call us.
