Stainless Steel Flue Liners

Stainless Steel Liners serve several purposes. They protect the house from heat transfer to combustibles, they protect the masonry from the bi-products of combustion that can cause corrosion, and they improve efficiency.

The chimneys in many older homes are unlined. This means that there is not a clay, ceramic, or metal lining material. There is simply brick and mortar serving to exhaust the bi-products of combustion. This lack of a lining material is very unsafe and has the potential for a catastrophic chimney fire.

The CSIA reports that the National Bureau of Standards tested masonry chimneys in the 1940’s and again in the 1980’s and found that unlined chimneys were so unsafe that one of the researches said that building a chimney without a liner was “a little less than criminal”

The good news is that here at Shane’s Chimney Care we can answer any questions you have about unlined chimneys and stainless steel liners, as well as successfully install a liner in your chimney.
