Why Install HeatShield?
Your chimney is important to the function of your fireplace. It helps to heat your home through the winter, and it also protects your home from toxic gases. However, your chimney must have a chimney liner to work efficiently. Many older homes have a masonry chimney that usually doesn’t have a proper liner or has an old and damaged tile liner. HeatShield is your solution for your damaged liners.
HeatShield’s Cerfractory Technology is a product that has been trusted and used by the experts for over 20 years now. It’s a hybrid ceramic/refractory material, so it is durable and strong like ceramic while also being heat resistant like refractory cement. The material, once mixed and applied, has stood up to high temperatures up to 2100 degrees, a steel wire sweep equivalent to 20 annual cleanings, and can withstand extreme strength, acid-resistance, and the freeze/thaw process.
HeatShield comes in a powder form that a certified installer mixes and then applies. It is also easy to install and apply on your chimney right away compared to other repair methods. You can speak with our certified HeatShield installer today when you call Black Moose Chimney & Stove. We are CSIA-certified, and we are proud to install HeatShield to repair, resurface, and reline your chimneys.
Even a well-constructed and well-maintained chimney can suffer from liner damage over time. The wear-and-tear of regular use as well as damage brought on by storms or because of leaks can cause the need for repairs. When your liner needs repairs, our experts can help with HeatShield. The HeatShield joint repair system involves a special foam applicator. In this process, an applicator blade suspends below the damaged areas in the chimney and pulls upward, depositing the HeatShield sealant into the void, joint, or gap. The finished product is a solid surface, durable and smooth for optimum airflow and improve the efficiency of your fireplace.
Minor repairs can be repaired by HeatShield. However, a resurfacing is a full covering of the sealant and can restore your liner and make it last. It will restore a badly cracked and damaged chimney liner to its full and safe function with less work and money than the relining process. The applicator suspends at the base of the chimney and pulls upward, covering the entire flue with a “tie coat”, before repeating the process to deposit the sealant on the walls evenly at a ¼ inch thickness.
