When chimneys get old or don’t receive annual maintenance they can quickly deteriorate and create hazardous conditions. Cracked tiles and collapsing masonry can vent hazardous gases or even fire and embers in to your home. Homeowners faced with a damaged chimney interior can choose to take the time and expense needed to tear down the existing chimney or you can reline your chimney with a stainless steel or aluminum insert from Baltimore Chimneys.
Baltimore chimney relining is necessary when the inner clay liner is cracked, deteriorated, over-sized, or no longer able to properly ventilate the byproducts of wood burning, such as smoke, creosote, and soot. These conditions may be the result of a number of possible causes, including flue fires, an improperly vented or misused stove, poor chimney construction, excessive moisture, and more.
