A Step in Time installs stainless steel chimney liners. Many masonry chimney have a terra cotta flue tile liner. These liners are very effective as a heat insulator if they experience a chimney fire, but are also very brittle and usually crack when they are exposed to thermal shock. NFPA 211 (national fire codes) basically state that these liners should be repaired or replaced when they crack. A very good way to correct these problems is to install stainless steel chimney liners. Many of these liners have lifetime warrantees and can effectively handle the thermal stress of chimney fires. Most homeowner insurance policy coverage includes chimney fire damage. Apparently the insurance companies understand that the cost of a chimney liner is better than the cost of a entire house. Call A Step in Time for you stainless steel chimney liner needs.
