Masonry Repair_LinersThe heart of a chimney system is the flue.  This is the vertical passageway that conducts smoke and products of combustion safely outside the home. Most fireplace flues are constructed using clay tiles and/or stainless steel flue liners.

Some common flue issues include:

  • Deteriorated clay tiles and mortar joints
  • Cracks from thermal shock of a chimney fire
  • Water intrusion and decay
  • Buildup of combustible deposits in the flue

The fire code recommends having your chimney system swept and inspected annually by a certified chimney sweep to ensure safety.
