Have you had your chimney inspected and been told that it needs to be relined? You probably heard the price to move forward with a chimney reline and thought to yourself, is this a good investment?

Personal Safety

A chimney flue inspection should not be an A, B, C, D or F school grade inspection. It is pass or fail. Why is this? A chimney is like a car exhaust as it take all the gases that would be coming directly out of the engine and blown into your car interior and instead vents them away for your personal safety. Your fireplace and utilities are the same as a car engine. You do not want to breath their gases in! If your current liner has any voids, gaps, or cracks you are welcoming the gases into your house. A one piece stainless steel liner has a life span upwards to 100 years and will not produce voids or gaps as easily as clay liners. Aside from personal safety, you also need to consider the safety and condition of your chimney.

Chimney Safety

If you leave a failed liner in use, the gases will escape out of the liner and into the inner chimney walls. When gases get into the chimney walls, they will deteriorate the chimney. The big downfall here is you will not notice most of the damage until it is too late as all the damage occurred from the inside first. This gets us onto the long term pay offs of a stainless steel liner. If you have a brick or stone chimney, you will have a costly rebuild ahead of you if you neglect relining a chimney when necessary. At this point, you will have to rebuild the chimney, as well as, reline the chimney. Ultimately the choice of relining your chimney with a stainless steel liner is preventative maintenance.
