Relining a chimney is crucial for many reasons. Deteriorating flue tile, cracked flue tile, missing flue tile, or maybe even an unlined chimney are serious conditions that must be addressed. This is not only for the safety of your home, but for the safety of your health as well. Damaged flue tile may cause a chimney fire to your home. This is very true. However, what most people don't know is that the use of oil or gas appliances produce deadly gases such as carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide.

These gases may cause carbon monoxide or sulfur dioxide poisoning, which could also lead to death.
