Chimney Relining Services: Improve Performance & Safety by Working With Us

Chimney liners play a pivotal role in keeping your chimney running safely and efficiently. In fact, “liner” is almost an unfair term for all a flue liner does. When we think of cupcake liners and shelf liners and trash can liners, we think of something that provides a little distance and maybe keeps disparate materials from sticking together.

A chimney liner is more like a chimney suit of armor and performance enhancer at the same time.

What A Flue Liner Does For Your Chimney

In the early years of chimney design and construction, chimneys were built without a liner. As advancements were made by the home heating industry (to minimize fire hazards and improve performance), it became clear what a poor choice that was. Not only is the draft in a chimney without a flue liner impeded by masonry imperfections, but heat and byproducts can easily escape into the walls or living space of the home. These masonry imperfections are quickly made worse by the effects of heat, combustion byproducts and moisture. To put it simply, unlined chimneys are far less effective and far more dangerous.

A chimney liner creates a smooth surface that allows gases to flow up and out of the chimney more easily and efficiently. It also provides a strong layer of protection that keeps your chimney masonry in better shape for longer, and in the process, minimizes the chances of fire hazards. Added up, the chimney liner is one of the most important components of your chimney system – and having a liner that’s installed correctly, sized correctly and maintained properly is key to your chimney system being in the best state possible.

If your chimney liner is damaged or incorrectly sized (or worse, MIA), Pristine Sweeps can replace it with a strong new liner that’s expertly installed and warrantied.

Stainless Steel Chimney Liners Are Strong & Durable

Stainless steel lining systems are strong, effective and durable, and when installed by professionals (like the CSIA-certified technicians at Pristine Sweeps), these carry a limited lifetime warranty.

Whether we’re replacing a damaged clay tile liner or resizing a flue to work properly with a new heating appliance, we find stainless steel liners to be a strong choice. We’re all aware of how durable stainless steel is (which is a part of why it’s become more and more popular in so many different applications, from kitchen appliances to building materials), and with no joints to crack or crumble, chimney owners can expect strong draft, long-term.

If you’re interested in our M-Flex or stainless steel lining systems, we’ve got you covered.
