Pottstown: Have Your Fireplace Relined By The Experts At Wells & Sons Chimney Service
Fireplace and wood stove flues are also repaired with stainless steel liners. Because of the higher stack temperatures, a thicker gauge liner is used. These also have lifetime warranties and must be swept once per year. These liners, once installed are also protected with a thermal insulation which adds protection to the liner as well as the home. In addition to repairing fireplace flues with stainless steel liners, these flues can also be repaired by replacing missing mortar joints or resurfacing.
We replace missing mortar joints and resurface flues with the fireguard system. This process is typically much more cost effective and carries a 30 year warranty. By using a specialized applicator and vibrating motor, we are able to replace the missing mortar joints and apply a coating to the flue sealing any cracks. This process typically takes 4-8 hours to complete.
Whether you choose Wells & Sons to repair your furnace flue or fireplace flue, you can be assured that with 38 years of experience, we will get the job done right in a professional manner. Because we are the only company in the area that manufactures our own UL Listed liners, we can warranty the workmanship and the materials.
If the masonry in your firebox is damaged, it is extremely important to have it repaired as soon as possible. The refractory masonry that fireboxes are built with protect the surrounding building materials from the heat and flames created in your firebox. If the masonry is damaged, the sheetrock, wood, and other building materials in your home are susceptible to this heat and can easily ignite. The team here at Wells & Sons can use the pointing process to repair your existing firebox, eliminating the necessity for a complete rebuild. This process can be used to smooth and fix cracks in the fireplace or the smoke chamber.
