Standard Chimney Reline – Case Study
We treat local clay brick chimneys constructed between 1750 and 1965 with an internal flue size from 225mm to 350mm as ‘standard chimneys’. The structures were usually built to last by craftsmen who understood the importance of a good sound chimney and flue. The use of coal with its corrosive soot deposits and high heat output has attacked the original bricks and mortar for many years. Combined with weathering from the elements, it seems ridiculous that these chimneys could be used for any type of modern open flue appliance without flue relining.
