Besides fitting flexi liners I am also involved in ceramic flue lining. The company I work with on this have a long track record in this area and all the work in carried out by their engineers. My role is to sweep the chimney and fill out the survey form without which they cannot quote for the job. Of course I have experience of the process and chimney building so I understand the pitfalls etc. and give the right advice.

BEFORE AND AFTER CERAMIC LINING PROCESS.

CASTING IN CERAMIC LINING OF CHIMNEYS / FLUES.

  • After the work has been completed hard wearing leak proof flue

  • As much as possible the existing cross section of the flue is maintained.

  • Generally any existing open fire will not need to be removed. Thus saving a large expense.

  • It is suitable for all fuels.

  • The disturbance inside the house is minimised with this method.

  • The lining material is resistant to attack from acid condensates.

  • Up draft is improved.

  • It is a superior system to the installation of a flexible liner for a similar cost.

  • The lining system will strengthen the chimney as well

ADVANTAGES OF CASTING IN A LINER FOR A CHIMNEY.

As the age of the housing stock increases leaking flues are becoming increasingly common. This can of course cause carbon monoxide poisoning and also reduce the draw on the fire.
