Liners are an important part of masonry chimneys. Although these liners are durable and long-lasting, clay tile liners suffer from erosion damage over time. In the past, repairing a clay tile liner was very expensive because it required the taking apart and rebuilding of the chimney. While you could have a new stainless steel liner professionally installed, you do have another economical option. Ace Chimney Sweeps offers professional clay tile chimney relining with a groundbreaking product, HeatShield. We would like to tell you more about HeatShield and how its value can help you and your chimney.

What Exactly is HeatShield?

The Value of HeatShield - Elkton MD - Ace Chimney SweepsOver 20 years ago, scientists in Europe used technology to develop a hybrid of ceramic and refractory coatings as HeatShield, which was approved to be used as a liner in chimneys attached to fireplaces of every type of fuel. There are three available methods of HeatShield: the Joint Repair System, the Resurfacing System, and the CeCure Sleeve Relining System. All of these methods involve the application of the HeatShield formula into a customized foam plug inserted into your chimney.

Which Method of HeatShield is Right for my Chimney?

First, Ace Chimney Sweeps will examine your chimney and also assess the amount of damage done. This assessment will determine which method of HeatShield is the best to restore your chimney liner. If we only find defective mortar joints, we will recommend the Joint Repair System. If we also find other defects along with damaged mortar joints, we use the Resurfacing System. The CeCure Sleeve Relining System is used for unlined chimneys or clay tile liners beyond the other two methods of repair. This system includes a layer of stainless steel fabric sandwiched between two coats of HeatShield.
