Relining a chimney is an important task if the existing one is damaged. A liner can be damaged by rough weather conditions and lack of maintenance which can lead to fires and elimination of toxins. To swiftly fix any problems, the chimney should be checked regularly.
A damaged flue will permit toxic gases to enter the house. Damage can be caused by the byproducts that are produced when burning fuel, which eats through the flue. Chimneys are commonly constructed with a terracotta liner that lasts about 10 years before it starts to break down.
