Lords Chimney - Chimney Sweep and Fireplace Vent Service

A warm and cozy fire sets the perfect mood for a chilly evening indoors. But not if your fireplace and chimney are broken down, crumbling, or posing any threats to your home. Stressing about gas leaks, house fires, and damaged masonry makes fireplace use anything but relaxing, which is why we encourage homeowners throughout the Houston area to rely on our team of experts for it all.

When it comes to offering your home and chimney better protection, a structurally sound liner is a must. A good number of homeowners will opt for a stainless liner if relining work is needed, but this isn’t always an option for those with a tighter budget. Fortunately, if you have a clay liner in place, there may be an alternative option – restoring it with HeatShield!

Our team can set you up with everything you need to operate your chimney as safely as possible this upcoming holiday season. For more information, give us a call today, or set up an appointment for your annual inspection so that we can get this process started. We’re always happy to help!

The Role Of Your Liner

First things first, it’s essential to know why a sturdy and reliable liner is necessary when operating your fireplace. For one thing, it keeps the other parts of your home from catching on fire. Your fireplace produces a lot of heat, and if the surrounding woodwork isn’t adequately protected, it could start on fire within a matter of hours. A correctly fitted and well-maintained liner will ensure those high temperatures and stray flames don’t reach any other areas of your house.

Another thing your liner does is keep your masonry in better shape. Your fireplace produces a lot of acidic gases, which can eat away at your brickwork and mortar in a hurry if given full access. The more it breaks these components down, the higher your chances will be of facing gas leaks, house fires, or even a chimney collapse! All in all, broken down masonry is costly to fix, so avoiding the issue altogether will always be your best bet.

Last, but certainly not least, a well-functioning liner will enable your chimney to function as efficiently as possible. It will ensure smoke and fumes are directed up and out of your flue, so nothing leaks back into your household, and it guarantees better draft and airflow all around. In the end, your system will function a lot safer, too, so don’t skimp when it comes to your liner – it’s a vital piece of your chimney’s anatomy!

How HeatShield Works

So, how does HeatShield work? Well, a full relining job would consist of tearing apart your current, broken down liner, after which an entirely new liner is put into your chimney. This is super effective, but it’s also very costly and time-consuming. Many wonder if there’s an easier and more affordable option – and there is! Heatshield is an alternative many turn to, and it also produces great results. In fact, it comes with a 20-year warranty, so you can trust that it’s a method that truly stands the test of time.

There are two HeatShield methods we can apply to your chimney. The first is HeatShield’s Joint Repair which is good for a tile-lined chimney that needs some repair work. If your mortar joints are crumbling, then this mixture will fill in every gap throughout your structure. In the end, you’ll be left with a smooth, seamless surface that can enjoy for the long haul.

Is a whole resurfacing job necessary? Then, HeatShield’s Resurfacing System is what you need. We’ll remove any dust from your flue, then put a thick application of HeatShield throughout the entire interior. Your chimney’s interior will be looking like new in no time!

Whichever method we use, we’ll use cameras to show you how everything looks at the end of it all. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction above everything else, so you won’t need to worry about being disappointed when we’re through. The Lords Chimney crew knows their stuff!
