Replacing Missing Chimneys
Where sections of the chimney are missing through a property, rebuilding the chimney structure to its original design and relining its entire length gives the most favourable results. A different approach would be to reline the remaining sections of old chimney using a stainless steel flexible liner and fill in the missing sections (above or below) using an insulated stainless steel chimney system.
A more frustrating part of our work is to dismantle and rebuild badly built chimneys that were constructed over the past 50 years. These modern brick chimneys should meet basic building regulations that have been in force since 1965. The sad reality is, builders and council building inspectors are still allowing the incorrect construction of chimneys. 9 out of 10 new build chimneys we inspect in our area fail basic requirements.
