When the clay tile liner in your masonry chimney has become cracked and damaged, Mr. Smokestack can restore and reline the chimney with the FireGuard Chimney Relining System. To tell you more about this amazing product, we would like to share with you some information from Firesafe Industries, the manufacturer of FireGuard.
What exactly is FireGuard?
A patented ceramic mortar joint and resurfacing system, Fireguard is specifically made to correct open mortar joints, fractures, and misalignments in clay tile chimney liners. What makes FireGuard different from other ceramic resurfacing systems is the use of pinpoint vibration to promote the maximum penetration of tight mortar joints and fractures and to distribute a consistent coat for resurfacing.
Why do I have to repair cracks in my clay tile liner?
Cracks and open mortar joints create open spaces in your chimney liner that can allow dangerous gases like carbon monoxide to leak into your home. These open spaces also accelerate the accumulation of flammable creosote deposits on the interior of your chimney. These deposits can easily ignite and start a devastating chimney fire. Additionally, repairing cracks and other damage to your chimney liner is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
Why should I use FireGuard to restore my chimney liner?
FireGuard can save you money by repairing the cracks by sealing the entire flue rather than having to replace the liner completely, which can be expensive. FireGuard will not reduce the size of your flue so that the performance of your fireplace will not be affected. With the highest temperature rating in the industry, Fireguard has been used in chimneys across the United States since 2003. Most importantly, Fireguard comes with a limited lifetime factory guarantee against material failure with every mortar repair and a limited 25-year factory guarantee with every resurfacing repair.
