Your chimney and fireplace system consists of many different working components to make it run safely and efficiently. One of the most important components is the chimney liner. A liner protects the combustible parts of your home that surround the chimney structure from the extremely high temperatures produced in the firebox. A liner also provides a properly sized match for the appliance. It works to prevent damage to the bricks and mortar joints from the corrosive combustion gases.
If you have an masonry chimney and fireplace system, you most likely have a clay tile liner. In the past, repairing this type of liner was labor intensive and expensive. Fortunately, a fantastic product, HeatShield, was invented a few decades ago. Our chimney professionals at Champs Chimney Service are official factory trained installers. We would love to help you learn more about HeatShield!
Proven to stand up to moisture, corrosive combustion gases, and extremely high temperatures, HeatShield is a patented combination of ceramic and refractory coatings that is compatible with all fuel types. This product is available in three different systems that can repair damaged and deteriorated clay tile liners. Each system is applied with specialized tools by chimney professionals who are trained and authorized by the manufacturer. Video cameras are also used to verify every repair so that you receive a limited lifetime warranty.
The first step when restoring your chimney liner with HeatShield is an inspection. This is when our professionals assess the level of damage in your system. If we find that only the mortar joints need repair, we will use the Joint Repair System to fill in all of the cracks and gaps to reinforce the joints. When we find damage to the tiles and the mortar joints, we will use the Resurfacing System to restore your chimney. If your clay tile liner has suffered damage beyond repair or if your chimney is unlined, we can install a new liner with the CeCure Sleeve Relining System.
