After a Chimney Fire...
Have you had a fire in your chimney? Any chimney fire is dangerous and can damage your home.But not all chimney fires are noisy and frightening. It is possible for a slow burning chimney fire to damage your flue without you even realizing it. A chimney inspection can spot the tell-tale signs of a hidden chimney fire and find the damage to the chimney or liner.
If you have had a chimney fire, it is likely that the chimney liner is damaged and needs replacing. If your chimney is lined with clay tiles, they can be expensive to replace. A stainless steel chimney liner is often a more economical alternative. If you install it yourself, you can save even more money. A properly installed and insulated chimney liner can reduce the likelihood of future chimney fires by helping to prevent creosote buildup in the flue.Read More

Why Reline Your Chimney?
A chimney liner, or flue, is the inner portion of a chimney that contains and channels the products of combustion. Most masonry chimneys are constructed with an inner liner of clay tiles. In some cases an original clay tile liner was never installed. In others, the tile lining may have cracked, crumbled and deteriorated over time- water damage, chimney fires, or just age can cause the deterioration of a clay liner.Read More

With spring approaching, Rockford Chimney is reminding homeowners to make sure their chimneys don't become home to raccoons.
To a raccoon, a chimney without a secure cap is a perfect nursery to raise the young born this time of year. Raccoons look for tall structures they can enter from the top with protected interiors where mother and young will be safe from predators. Raccoons learned to look for these features in hollow trees long before people built chimneys. An abundance of chimneys and corresponding short supply of hollow trees in cities and suburbs is a recipe for conflict with these wild neighbors.
The most important thing for homeowners to know about raccoons in chimneys is that a secure chimney cap will keep them out before they settle in.
Homeowners should cap chimneys now, before raccoon birthing season.Read More
