Flue Damage

There are several clear signs and causes of flue damage. One of the more obvious signs is collapsed, cracked, or missing tiles.

This prevents smoke and other byproducts from properly exiting your chimney. An improperly fitting liner, neglect of regular maintenance, and a chimney fire all can cause damage to your flue.

Stainless steel liners are our other flue repair option, and they are becoming the industry standard for a variety of reasons.
