Can I Install a Chimney Liner Myself?
Installing a chimney with a stainless steel liner can be the best way to save it. Old brick and mortar chimneys are prone to become a fire hazard as they start to wear down. Stainless steel liners are a great way to make your chimney safe again and also one of the cheapest options. Still, you may be eager to save even more money so you might be thinking of doing the job yourself. The good news is, you can.
Installing chimney liners are quite possible for anyone who is good with basic work around the house skills. There are just a few things you’ll need to keep in mind.
You need to be sure and know all the exact measurements of your flue. The tools you’ll need are fairly basic aside from the liner itself.
A good idea would be to still work closely with a professional company even if you’re doing the job yourself. You’ll obviously want to order the liner from a professional company and you’ll want to know who to call if you have questions.
When browsing online look for a company that’s willing to answer any questions you may have about the liner and installation. Whether it's what you may need for a flexible chimney liner kit to the difference between 316Ti stainless steel and304L stainless steel, you’ll need someone experienced who knows what these terms mean and how to explain them.
