CHIMNEY REPAIR AND RELINING: Chimney repair is done any time a metal or brick chimney is damaged. Chimney relining is when a metal tube is inserted into a brick chimney. Chimney liners can be made out of aluminum or stainless steel (304,316),depending on the application. All liners must be rust free. Relining is done for a number of reasons. The most common today is too make the chimney the right size for the appliance being vented. Relining can also be used to protect the chimney, such as protecting it from acid being produced by a furnace. Relining can also be used to produce a fire wall in a damage or unlined chimney.
CROWNWASH REPAIR : The crownwash is the very top of the chimney where the snow sits. When the chimney is brick the crownwash is made out of cement, when it’s a wood chase the top is made out of sheet metal.
