Chimney Relining

By | Tagged with: Tags: , , | Comments Off on Chimney Relining

Over the years, your chimney liner suffers from damage, and this can lead to some serious safety issues. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), your chimney liner serves three important functions. It protects the bricks and mortar of your chimney from the corrosive gases from combustion, it protects your home from extreme heat transferring to combustibles, and it provides a correctly-sized flue for your heating appliance. If your chimney liner is damaged, it cannot do its job properly. Magic Sweep offers chimney relining services for every type of chimney liner, and we would like to tell you about the options we provide.

If you have an older masonry chimney, you probably have a clay tile liner. Even though these liners are durable and built to last for years, the clay tiles can still suffer from erosion and spalling damage. Magic Sweep offers an economical and easy way to reline clay tile liners with HeatShield. Our chimney technicians have been trained to apply this cerfractory formula with special tools to repair and restore clay tile liners.


The only liner that carries a lifetime guarantee, a stainless steel chimney liner is the best option if your old liner is beyond repair. It is also the easiest way to bring an old chimney up to modern building codes that require every chimney to be lined. You should also choose a stainless steel liner if you are updating your old fireplace with an insert. Magic Sweep can fit the liner to your new heating appliance to give it a properly-sized flue so that the insert will work safely and efficiently.


This type of liner is a lightweight cement-like product that we can pour into your chimney to form a passageway that is smooth, seamless, and insulated. Magic Sweep uses Supaflu Chimney Systems as our cast in place method, and this durable liner comes with a great warranty. We can let you know if this type of liner is an option for your chimney after we perform a Level 2 chimney inspection to see exactly how damaged your flue is.

In order to work at its safest and most efficient level, your chimney needs to be relined when the liner is damaged. Contact us at Magic Sweep to talk to us about which type of chimney relining method is best for your chimney.
