FireGuard Flue Repairs By Antrim’s, A Good Sweep Chimney and Masonry Service
An Alternative to Complete Chimney Relining
The patented FireGuard flue repair system is an effective, lower cost alternative to full-scale chimney relining. Where relining can take multiple days, a FireGuard flue repair job can often be completed in one day.
While some chimneys are “too far gone” and will require complete removal and replacement of damaged terracotta flue linings, others can often be repaired with the fireguard system for a fraction of the cost of a complete relining.
In order to give the best options for your chimney lining needs, we will have to consider what the chimney is being used for, the quality of the chimney’s original construction, and its current level of deterioration.
How do I know if my chimney is a good candidate for the FireGuard Chimney Flue Repair System?
In order to determine if the chimney is a good candidate for the FireGuard repair, a thorough inspection needs to be performed. The inspection must include a visual evaluation of all accessible areas of the chimney structure, as well as a video scanning of the chimney flue interiors. A proper inspection usually takes between 1 – 2 hours and includes a good sweeping of the flue if one is needed.
Please call us if you have questions or if you want to schedule a service inspection. We will be happy to help any way we can.
