Older chimneys in Hattersley may not be fitted with liners at all, or will need to be relined subject to their condition and age.

Your fireplace flue lining can easily be weakened by the harmful gases which are created by burning a fire. Make sure your fireplace installer checks the flue for damage and potential issues. If there is damage, those dangerous gases may seep into your home rather than being properly vented outdoors. There's an added hazard with impaired flue linings, in that they may enable intense heat to penetrate the structure of the chimney, which may cause fires.
