Get A Lifetime Of Chimney Flue Protection With Stainless Steel

There are many different metals out there and some stronger than others. When it comes to keeping high heat, smoke, and corrosive byproducts contained, we believe that you really shouldn’t take chances with a weak, low-quality material. That’s why we reline flue liners with stainless steel, not aluminum or other subpar metals.

Stainless steel is incredibly strong, rust-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and capable of taking the heat, fire after fire – and the stainless steel liners we install here at Black Velvet Chimney carry a lifetime warranty. What does that mean for you? You won’t have to even think about another liner – as long as you have your stainless steel liner professionally installed and you maintain it with cleanings as needed, your stainless steel liner will last you a lifetime.

In addition to its durability, longevity, strength, and effectiveness, homeowners love stainless steel because installation doesn’t come with demolition work, hours of labor, or the mess and expense of replacing a clay tile liner with the same material.

What Are the Benefits of Stainless Steel Chimney Liners?

Stainless steel liners have several benefits over traditional clay tile liners. These are some of the key advantages:

  • They are safer. Stainless steel liners can help to improve chimney safety by reducing the risk of chimney fires because they have a smooth surface that discourages the buildup of highly flammable creosote.
  • They are durable. Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion – as well as general wear and tear – making it a long-term solution for chimneys.
  • They are versatile. Stainless steel liners are available in a variety of sizes as both rigid and flexible types. Regardless of the shape and size of your chimney flue, we’re confident we can find the perfect stainless steel liner option for you.
  • They improve efficiency. Remember that smooth surface we mentioned above? It also reduces friction which allows gases and toxins to vent more easily. This effect will create a stronger draft that will eventually reflect in lower energy costs.
  • They are easier to maintain. Clay tile liners are far more prone to chipping and cracking than stainless steel and will require maintenance work from time to time to be fully functional.
  • They aren’t hard to install. Stainless steel liners can be installed relatively quickly compared to other types of flue liners and don’t require as much labor.
  • They are cost-effective. Although stainless steel liners have a higher upfront cost, you can save money in the long run because they are more efficient and won’t require as much maintenance.

Is Stainless Steel the Right Choice for Me?

So when can stainless steel liners “save the day”?

  • When you’re swapping fuel types and your old liner isn’t approved for venting your new fuel choice.
  • When you’re changing appliances and your new appliance require a flue liner of a different size than the one you currently have.
  • When holes, cracks, and other damage in your flue liner have made your chimney system unsafe for use.

If you’re still not sure about upgrading to a stainless steel liner, ask your chimney technicians if your chimney system is a good candidate.
