In many cases, masonry chimneys are not designed to handle the venting requirements of modern high-efficiency heating appliances. If you are burning liquid propane, natural gas, oil, wood, pellet fuel, or coal, an improperly lined chimney can cause a number of costly structural and cosmetic problems. Inevitably, serious safety hazards will also eventually occur. Relining an existing chimney is the most practical and affordable way to repair a deteriorated or damaged chimney, while bring further damage to a halt. If your chimney does not have a liner, or the liner it has is cracked or deteriorated, it will need to be replaced. The new liner must be properly sized to your heating appliance, and must be made of the right material to ensure a long and safe life-time. The liners we install come with a life-time guarantee, and are manufactured locally in Scranton, PA.
Exposure to the harshest of NEPA weather conditions combined with the corrosive flue gases and moisture from your heating appliance will inevitably take a toll on your chimney. Chimneys generally deteriorate from the inside out, and from the top down. A common culprit is the acidic moisture exhaust of modern day appliances. As the flue gases rise through the chimney they cool, especially in cases where the chimney is outside of the home. These flue gases condense and the inside of the chimney becomes saturated with acidic moisture.
Traditional clay flue-tiles are porous and they soak in this acidic moisture, causing them to deteriorate very quickly. Once this moisture reaches the masonry structure, that too breaks down. This means when the outside of a chimney is showing signs of deterioration, usually the inside is much worse. The Chimney Man specializes in fixing this problem permanently. When deterioration has reached this point, we recommend repairing the masonry structure in addition to installing a stainless steel liner. Deterioration is halted from all sources and your chimney will now last a long time.
We do all kinds of masonry repairs including block, brick, stone, and cultured stone. Being attacked from both the inside and outside makes chimneys a unique area of masonry. We are qualified and educated to address this unique application of masonry, so our repairs last.
