Chimney Repairs Newton

A chimney is a type of architectural ventilation system composed of masonry, clay, or metal that separates hot, hazardous exhaust fumes (also known as flue gases) from places where people live. These gases are produced by a boiler, stove, furnace, incinerator, or fireplace. In order to guarantee that the gases flow smoothly and draw air into the combustion in what is known as the stack, or chimney effect, chimneys are normally vertical or as close to vertical as feasible. The term “flue” refers to the area within a chimney. Buildings, industrial facilities, steam locomotives, and ships all have chimneys.

Buildings have been constructed with the chimney located inside the building’s heat-producing appliances and devices, such as fireplaces and stoves. Chimneys are also used to vent exhaust fumes from furnaces and generators that burn fuel. In steam locomotives the term smokebox is used instead of chimney to describe where the smoke is expelled to atmosphere after it has passed through the cylinders and boiler. 

We have determined that the structure of your chimney is compromised by a large crack that runs down the south face of the flue. This crack has been growing in size over many years, and it is now time to take action to prevent further damage. If left unchecked, this crack will continue to grow, increasing the risk of collapse as well as water damage to your home’s interior and possible mold infestation.

Chimney Linear Installment Process

1. Remove all debris and creosote from the chimney
Creosote is a flammable substance produced by burning wood or coal, and if left alone in the chimney, it could ignite at any moment. Once you’ve removed it all, get authorization from your HOA or landlord to add a liner and flue lining. Even if they don’t require it by law, this step is essential for two reasons: a liner will prevent creosote from building up again, which means less maintenance and worry for you in the future, and a liner will keep pollutants out of your home’s air. This process might seem intimidating at first glance, but it’s quite easy when you break it down into individual steps. All that’s required is some time and a little effort on your part!

2. Install a stainless steel liner system in the chimney

First, you need to buy a coil of stainless steel liner from your local hardware store. A coil can be bought for about $50-$75 at considerably less than the $100-$150 price range you’d pay if you were getting it installed by a pro. The next step is to cut the line to size and feed it into the chimney system. This requires two people—one to feed the piece in and one to guide it around obstacles like the flue pipe and heat register pipes. Once it reaches the top, you need to attach an end cap and secure it with some sort of exterior adhesive (read our blog post on how we secured ours ). Finally, you need to call up our Chimney Repair specialists at 617 685 9601

3. Rebuild the chimney with firebrick inside a concrete block outer structure

The firebrick liner is a bit over 6″ square, with a small flange on the top and bottom. The flange fits into an opening in the concrete block outer structure. The liner has six 1/4″ holes for bolts through the liner to the concrete block outer structure. When the liner is properly positioned, bolts are put in through the flange holes and welded to nuts inside the liner and concrete block outer structure.After you have your new and improved chimney, remember to get it cleaned at least once a year.
