We’ve Been Restoring & Relining Chimneys In Tulsa & The Surrounding Areas For Nearly 20 Years
The joy of having a fireplace is the warmth and comfort it brings, but flue liner damage can pose a significant threat. Unfortunately, many homeowners have damaged liners or completely unlined chimneys and don’t even know it.
For years, chimneys were built without liners, which has since been labeled as “nothing less than criminal.” So many fires could have been prevented with proper lining and insulation. That’s why today, chimneys must be lined in order to meet local and national building and safety codes.
How’s your chimney liner looking? Do you even have one?
Is It Time To Reline Your Chimney? Start With An Inspection
One of the most important parts of our job as chimney experts is making sure our neighbors in Tulsa and throughout the neighboring communities are using properly lined chimneys to vent their hearth appliances. It’s one major reason why we (and the Chimney Safety Institute of America) recommend annual chimney inspections.
Without getting a camera up into the chimney flue, it can be nearly impossible to identify where dangers and issues lie. That’s why we snake cameras up into chimneys during our inspections.
If you’re experiencing smoke problems, poor fireplace performance, or inadequate draft, these could indicate an issue with the liner. During an inspection, we’ll be able to get to the bottom of the issue and let you know whether a relining is needed.
We Have Relining & Resurfacing Options For All Situations & Circumstances
If an inspection reveals that your chimney liner is unsafe or missing, you may be wondering what your options are. Well, before lighting another fire in your fireplace, talk with one of our CSIA-certified chimney experts. We’re proud to offer our clients a few different repair and reline options. No matter how minor or major the damage, we’re confident we can help.
- Stainless Steel Liners — If your flue is unlined, you’re switching fuel types or appliance types, or your liner is in irreparable condition, you may want to reline with stainless steel. Stainless steel liners come in a variety of sizes and shapes, they’re approved for use with all fuel types and appliance types, and they’re designed to be easily retrofitted into the chimney. Unlike aluminum and other weaker metal liners, stainless steel liners carry a lifetime warranty and won’t corrode or rust. Find out more about this great option here.
- HeatShield® Liner Repair & Resurfacing — HeatShield® is a great option for clay tile or terra cotta liners that are cracking or deteriorating. As certified HeatShield® dealers, we’re able to offer three different systems for three different situations: the joint repair system, the resurfacing/cast-in-place system, and the relining/CeCure® Sleeve system. Each is designed to restore, resurface, and insulate the chimney, so you don’t have to invest in a full tear-out and relining. Learn more here.
