Chattanooga TN Stainless Steel Liners
Chimney Solutions of Chattanooga installs powerful new stainless steel chimney liners in the Greater Chattanooga area along with Northwest Georgia from Rome GA to Rossville GA. Other communities in our service area include Harrison TN, Middle Valley TN, Dalton GA, and Chatsworth GA.
Chimney liners aren’t normally visible, making it easy for them to be “out of sight, out of mind.” However, if the liner at your Chattanooga home is seriously damaged, you’ll want to know about it as soon as possible.
Common Types of Chimney Liners
You may already have a stainless steel liner at your Chattanooga home. You also may have a clay tile liner or a liner built from a cast-in-place compound. No matter the type, all chimney liners eventually can suffer damage for various reasons, including:
- Old age
- Toxic, corrosive flue gases
- Water moving in through a chimney leak
- Freeze-thaw cycles (particularly with tile liners)
- Recurrent chimney fires
What’s the Condition of Your Chimney Liner?
As noted, you can’t easily see your chimney liner, so it’s difficult to tell what kind of shape it’s in. The only way to tell for sure is to have one of our Chattanooga chimney experts perform an inspection.
Our liner inspections include the use of video imaging, which lets us see all the surfaces of your chimney liner inside the flue. We know what to look for that indicates signs of damage, and we can tell you exactly what needs to be done to resolve any problems.
Minor repairs can sometimes be made to a damaged chimney liner. With moderate to severe damage, a new stainless steel liner is the best solution.
3 Reasons to Add a Stainless Steel Liner to Your Chattanooga Chimney
We do a lot of stainless steel chimney liner installations throughout Chattanooga. Typical scenarios requiring this service include:
Old liner is severely damaged:
When your existing chimney liner is seriously damaged, it’s time to add a strong new stainless steel liner. Operating your fireplace with a compromised liner puts you at risk of fire, carbon monoxide leakage and major drafting problems.
System is being modified:
Adding a new appliance to the chimney system often calls for a new liner installation. You want a liner that’s sized correctly for the new appliance to ensure proper venting operation.
Historic chimney restoration projects:
Many of the older homes in and around Chattanooga have no chimney liners at all because when they were built, there was no law saying liners were required. We’ll add a new stainless steel liner to your historic chimney and give it many more years of safe service.
