Masonry chimney construction must be carefully done. If you hire someone that’s not qualified, it’s possible for your house to burn down. If improperly installed, the chimney may not do what it was intended to do like keep our house warm, but instead, could become destructive. Different types of chimneys are designed to allow combustion by products to be vented away from the structure so as not to cause any damage to it. This option is not only more pleasant to look at, it also lasts longer.
Chimney Flue Liners
A Flue Liner is a material that provides a smooth, relatively seamless surface and in some cases, also insulation. These liners are not necessary for every chimney flue, but they do serve a purpose and are recommended to be installed. In older homes, not seeing a flue liner is not uncommon, and is still so in some more modern homes. Contractors are not always willing to abide by recommended practices.
