How Does HeatShield Compare to Other Chimney Liners?

HeatShield Chimney Relining Repair is a highly effective method of installing a durable new liner coating inside your masonry chimney. Once the coating is installed, this forms an insulated barrier around the sides of the flue that reduces flue temperature, while increasing draft – resulting in improved efficiency and reduced risk of creosote buildup.

Furthermore, because HeatShield repair liner systems are durable yet lightweight, they require no additional support, which saves time on installation compared to heavier metal liners that require additional reinforcement. This not only makes them more cost-effective but also means no costly rebuilding work is required for installation, compared to other types of chimney liners.

All in all, HeatShield Chimney Relining Repair offers major benefits for improving the performance, reliability, and longevity of your chimney system.

What Are Some Signs That My Masonry Chimney Might Need Relining?

Damage to your chimney, if left unattended, can cause a myriad of issues ranging from structural problems to health hazards. Because of this, it is vital for homeowners to be aware of the telltale signs of damage and address any issues promptly.

Common red flags on a masonry chimney include crumbling mortar and broken flue tiles, which when visible from the outside of your home, could mean your chimney is in need of maintenance.

Other signs that may not be as obvious include excessive creosote buildup on the interior walls, water leakage into the firebox, smokey or strong odors entering your home, inefficiency, or drafting issues. All of these should be considered alarm signals and addressed immediately in order to keep your family safer and protect your home from further damage or costly repairs.

However, these things left unattended, will, over time, lead to the degradation of the chimney flue, bricks, and mortar. The only way you can truly know if your system is in need of a new or repaired liner is to have a certified chimney technician do a thorough inspection on an annual basis. Inspections are really the only way to be sure of what your system needs to stay healthy so your family stays healthy.
