We Are Certified HeatShield® Installers!
When your old clay flue starts cracking, crumbling and deteriorating, you simply can’t safely enjoy a fire until repairs are made or your flue is relined. Here at Above & Beyond Chimney, we’re excited to be able to offer our customers a variety of options for resurfacing or relining flues, including the HeatShield® Chimney Repair & Resurfacing System. This amazing “Cerfractory Flue Sealant” is designed to fill in cracks, gaps and holes in mortar and clay tiles, restoring the flue and providing protection against high heat.
What Is Involved In Installation?
This versatile product can actually be applied and used in a few different ways. Depending on the state and needs of your chimney system, we may choose one of the following methods of application:
- We May Simply Do Joint Repairs – If your flue damages are somewhat minor, we can use HeatShield® to fill in the joints and small cracks or holes. We’ll start by making an applicator blade that fits your chimney perfectly; next we’ll add the HeatShield® sealant to the hole, crack or deteriorating area and smooth over it with the applicator.
- We May Resurface The Entire Flue – If your flue is still structurally solid but has a good amount of surface damage, we may resurface the entire flue with the HeatShield® product. This process also involves creating an applicator blade that perfectly fits your chimney, but before applying the product, we apply a “tie coat”. The “tie coat” works to prep your flue for the product, which is poured down into the flue. Using the applicator, we spread the HeatShield® sealant evenly over the entire surface of the flue, filling in all cracks and holes.
- We May Opt To Use The CeCure Sleeve Relining System – If your clay flue is beyond repair, we may opt to use HeatShield® with the CeCure Sleeve Relining System. During this procedure, we start with a layer of HeatShield®, drop down a “CeCure Sleeve”, and then add another coat of HeatShield® over the sleeve.
