A flue lining in a chimney is a clay, ceramic or metal conduit installed inside of a chimney. It is intended to contain the combustion products, direct them to the outside atmosphere and protect the chimney walls from heat and corrosion. Flue gases are acidic in nature and eat away the mortar joints in a chimney. As mortar joints erode, heat transfers more rapidly to the nearby combustibles and dangerous gases, such as carbon monoxide, can leak into the living areas of your home.
We do yearly maintenance programs for customers who have us clean their chimney and fireplace yearly. Maintenance includes caulking of flashing, chimney and fireplace clean, cleaning of the clean out, and a full inspection of the chimney and fire place.
Rebuilds start from the roof line up. In some cases, from the ground up. We specialize in removing the faulty chimney and replacing with a brand new chimney to match the old one. We also match mortar color to match existing structure. We also have many years in the business and can build to your liking,
All repairs are done to meet all structural codes and done to perfection. We always match the mortar color to the existing brick mortar. All chimney repairs come with a full inspection of chimney,fireplaces,hot water tank flues, furnace flues, boiler flues, ect.. We are always responsible for clean up of all job debris, and hauling of all job debris.
