Chimney Flue Liner Services

Why chimney liners are important… 


A chimney liner is a ceramic or metal tube that is installed inside of a chimney. These are used as exhaust pipes for either fireplaces or utilities like water heaters and furnace. The chimney liner work by keeping gases combustible products from entering the household interior. Chimney flue liners also protect the walls of the chimney from heat or gas corrosion. These liners mainly come in two types: clay tiles or metal, including stainless steel or aluminum. CTC Masonry provides specialized chimney liner installation services to keep Chicagoland chimneys working properly.

A chimney without a flue liner or with an old, worn-out chimney liner can cause serious damage. Unlined chimneys are extremely dangerous, as these liners protect the house from any premature escape of gases or build up of soot/creosote in unreachable areas. Left unchecked, these issues can potentially cause a fire or gases entering your house. Chimney flue liners also protect the masonry from combustion’s corrosive byproducts.

What is so corrosive about these byproducts? Flue gases are acidic in nature and will eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. This allows heat to travel rapidly to surrounding areas, and dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can leak into the areas of the home. CTC’s chimney liner installation services keep your home and family safe from heat transfer, fire, and noxious gases by ensuring proper fireplace usage.

Proper installation of a flue liner, will protect your home inside and out!
