We Can Restore Your Chimney With A Brand New Liner

The inside of the chimney is exposed to incredibly high heat and corrosive byproducts every time you enjoy a fire. And over time, this, and other factors (like chimney leaks or animals) can deteriorate your liner and lead to the need for relining services. If your liner is damaged, or if your chimney was built without a liner, give us a call! Our expert technicians have years of chimney relining experience and can quickly and professionally reline your chimney to last.

Why Is The Chimney Liner So Important?

You may not give it much thought, but the chimney liner is incredibly important for a variety of reasons.

First, it serves to contain the high heat and byproducts of the fire you enjoy, protecting the masonry of the chimney and nearby combustibles.

Second, it serves to usher carbon monoxide, smoke, and other byproducts of combustion up and out of your home, instead of allowing them to leak back into your air supply.

When holes or cracks appear in the chimney liner, it can no longer be expected to effectively contain the heat and byproducts of a fire, and the system should not be used.

How Do I Know If My Chimney Needs Relining?

If can be difficult to know when your chimney needs relining, but as long as you stay up on your annual inspections, you should never have to wonder what kind of condition your liner is in. The team at Top Notch Chimney Sweep & Services can evaluate your system using our state-of-the-art video scanning equipment, and let you know whether or not your liner needs repairs or should be replaced.

Which Type Of Liner Should I Get?

Different liners work better with different fuel types and appliances, but our technicians can evaluate your system and make recommendations for which liner will best serve your needs. Stainless steel liners are incredibly popular because they are approved for use with all fuels, and typically come with lifetime warranties when professionally installed.

We also install HeatShield®, which is an innovative product that can restore your existing clay tile liner. Click here to learn more!

Professional & Friendly
After buying a new house, my wife and I didn't know much about our fireplace and chimney. Tom came up to Ames to inspect and clean our chimney. He was prompt, professional, and friendly--our dog, who is a good judge of character, really liked him too! He gave us a lot of great information, talking us through how to best use our fireplace, and he left us feeling confident that we'll be able to enjoy our nice fires during the cold seasons for years to come! He also helped me understand what issues we might have with the unused, boarded-up fireplace in the basement and promised to come take a look at it this winter in the event that we want to get it in workable condition too.I'm really pleased with the service we received, and now I know who I'm going to call for yearly service or for any problems! Thanks, Tom, for all your help!  I'll be passing on your name to friends!
