The liner is one of the most integral parts of your chimney or fireplace. The liner directs the combustible components of your fireplace exhaust into the atmosphere and protects the chimney walls from heat and corrosion.
The most common type of liner is made of clay because it is inexpensive and readily available. The disadvantage of clay liners is that they are unable to quickly absorb and evenly distribute the heat of a burning fireplace. This is where stainless steel liners come in. Stainless steel liners are far more durable, they are able to distribute and absorb heat and combustible materials more quickly while providing more protection for your chimney walls.
The installation and repair of stainless steel chimney liner and fireplace liners are one of Old Tyme Chimney Sweep’s specialties, and each one comes with a Lifetime Guarantee. Click here to contact us today!
