The last thing you want to happen over the holidays is an accidental fire in your home. However, if your chimney liner is cracked and damaged, you are at a risk for fire. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), chimney liners serve three important functions that help to keep your chimney and fireplace system working safely and efficiently.
These functions include protecting the combustible parts of your home from heat transfer, preventing damage and deterioration of the bricks and mortar joints from corrosive combustion gases, and providing a properly sized flue for your heating appliance. If it has been years since you had your chimney relined, it is time to contact our professionals for our chimney relining service. We would like to tell you more about the different types of chimney relining services we offer.
HeatShield is a combination of ceramic and refractory coatings. It is used as a sealant to restore the integrity of clay tile chimney liner. If you have an older masonry chimney, it most likely has a clay tile chimney liner. They are durable and built to last for lifetimes. However, the tiles and mortar joints can suffer from spalling over the years due to its constant endurance to extremely high temperatures.
Different HeatShield Systems
HeatShield is available in three different systems. We recommend the appropriate system to repair and restore your chimney liner depending on its condition. If we find damaged mortar joints, we use the Joint Repair System. However, if the tiles have cracks and spalling, we can restore them with the Resurfacing System. If the liner is beyond repair or nonexistent, we can install a new liner with the CeCure Sleeve Relining System. Every HeatShield repair we do is verified with special video camera and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
We also offer the stainless steel liners, and they are popular for their durability and flexibility. No matter what size or shape your chimney is, Ashbusters can customize a stainless steel liner for your fireplace with wood, gas, pellet, and other fuel types. When you have CSIA-certified chimney technicians install your liner professionally, you also get a lifetime warranty.
