CHIMNEY LINER REPAIR
If you enjoy your cozy fireplace during the winter months and the appeal it adds to your home, maintenance should be part of your yearly routine. There are many parts of your chimney that you should keep up with, especially when you are looking into repairs or replacements.
Chimney liners, also known as flue liners, allow gases such as carbon monoxide to escape safely from your home. Liners also help control the exterior temperature of the chimney. Chimney lining repair and installation is a standard procedure for homeowners. When you need service, you can count on Atlanta Chimney Doctor.
Why Replace Your Chimney Lining?
Chimney maintenance increases the value and safety of your home. There are a few reasons why a chimney liner may need to be repaired or replaced, including:
- Misalignment: The smooth surface of a liner allows air to escape with ease. Misaligned liners make it harder for toxic fumes to leave your home.
- Missing flue liner joints: Mortar lining joints disappear over time after exposure to rain and corrosive fumes.
- Gaps between liners: Gaps can occur from missing liner joints or improper installation. Gaps can lead to trapped carbon monoxide or deterioration of the chimney.
Without a liner, the masonry comes in contact with fumes released during heating. These gases are acidic, so they begin to deteriorate the structure. A solid lining will remove these gases from your home and keep the foundation of your chimney intact.
Updating any misplaced or faulty liners will prevent further damage to your home. To continue to enjoy your chimney, you should schedule regular professional inspections to check your liner’s safety and replace or repair your liner as needed.
