Chimney Relining for Your Wisconsin Property
Custom Restoration is Here for All Your Chimney Masonry Needs
Improperly lined chimneys do not work as efficiently as they should. Warm air can linger inside the chimney, which reacts to the cooling of the masonry and can create moisture which damages the lining. Chimneys can then deteriorate over time from the inside out. Once that happens, expensive chimney repairs are often needed.

What is chimney relining?
Chimney relining is the most cost-effective solution for when the interior lining of a chimney is cracked or damaged. Relining is the installation of a new clay liner to protect the inside of the chimney and ensure smoke, creosote, and soot are ventilated properly. It's a much more affordable alternative to replacing the chimney altogether.
Most Common Signs of Chimney Damage
Efflorescence – Unusual white stains on chimney bricks is a sure sign of excessive moisture in the masonry.
Deteriorated mortar joints – Damaged mortar joints can increase the amount of moisture leaking into your chimney, which can further deteriorate the masonry. Tuckpointing is a great fix for this.
Spalling bricks – Spalling is when moisture penetrates brick masonry and breaks it apart, causing damage to the structure of your chimney.
Deteriorated flashing – Chimney flashing is a metal sheet that creates a watertight seal between your chimney and the roof. If your flashing is damaged, then it's likely your chimney is damaged too.
