You have vertical cracks in your flue tile. Though they may look small, when heated these cracks enlarge and create areas where smoke can build dangerous amounts of flammable creosote. Similar to gaps between your flue tile, you now have a fuel source that’s not restricted to your chimney liner.
Metal flues can have ripples or folding pieces of inner liner that causes hotspots. These can be potential areas where creosote builds up and cannot be removed, creating a hidden danger.
Option 1: We are certified in the HeatShield process of restoring clay chimney liners. This product restores your original chimney liner by resurfacing the entire inside. It can also be used to fill in missing mortar joints in between flue tiles. Making this a less expensive repair. HeatShield gives you a lifetime warranty and is not as costly as a steel liner. This is our preferred choice.
Option 2: We can use a stainless steel liner. This involves removing the inner flue tile and replacing it with a lifetime warrantied stainless steel insulated flue liner. This is a time-tested method, but is also time consuming and destructive, thereby costlier than a HeatShield repair.
The bad news is that there is no way to repair a factory-built metal chimney. The only solution is to replace it with a new chimney system that is UL listed for the specific factory-built fireplace or appliance.
The good news is that if it comes to it, we are the experts to replace the chimney system for you.
