Chimney Liners Are an Important Part of Your Chimney

Chimney liners are just one portion of installing a chimney for your wood burning stove or fireplace. The liner is an important piece which should be properly insulated to help create a better draft. This moves smoke and other harmful by-products of the fire away. A well-insulated liner will also stay cleaner longer, which means you can get more use out of your fireplace or stove before having to get the chimney cleaned.

Clay Tile Chimney Liners Will Eventually Need Replaced

Traditional chimneys were built using an inner liner of clay tiles to form the chimney liner. Over time these clay tiled chimney liners can crack, crumble and deteriorate, which could even allow smoke and other by-products of the fire to seep into rooms in the home.
