Chimneys: A Look Back in History
Chimney problems before the 1900’s were far less complicated. Mankind had always burned coal or wood for heating and cooking. The temperature in the chimney flue when these materials were burned reached over 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Above this temperature all combustible products leave the chimney in the form of steam or gas and left no residue. However in the past century, these materials were replaced with more economical products of oil and gas. These products only allow the temperature in the chimney flue to barely reach 250 degrees and corrosion problems began. this lower temperature does not reduce everything to steam or gas and instead allows an acidic condensation behind that eventually corrodes mortar, concrete and possibly even stainless steel chimney flues. Corrosion can lead to breaks and leaks and deadly carbon monoxide gasses entering your home and/or business. Regular chimney inspection and cleaning can keep you safe and more recently the use of stainless steel chimney liners have come a long way with keeping chimneys more effective and safe for longer periods of time. But they also have some drawbacks.
Stainless Steel Chimney Liners Are Excellent, But…
Stainless Steel Tubes are corrosion proof for 10-15 years but it is impossible to insert them into a long chimney with bends (often around fireplaces) without breaking open the inside walls of a home or business. This problem is often found in multi family dwellings such as the Chimneys in Brownstones of Brooklyn and Manhattan in our particular service area. Additionally there is the problem of tile knocking. this is the process of having to remove the existing terracotta clay chimney systems found in most homes in Long Island. This is a labor intensive process that is often required when trying to fit a larger stainless steel liner in a pre-existing smaller terracotta chimney flue. In many cases the Furanflex installation is flexible enough to fit right into the pre-existing terracotta chimney.
The internal layer facilitates installation. It is a thin walled (100-150 microns) plastic hose made up of a mixture of thermoplastic components.
The intermediate composite layer is the heat, flame and corrosion resistant structural material of the FuranFlex chimney liner tube. Composite means resin of high solidity reinforced with thin glass fibers. One Square meter of the wall structure of the FuranFlex liner tube contains 3,000,000 meters of factory specified fibers.
The external layer is a thin fabric woven from synthetic fiber. Its function is to protect the composite layer and to insure the exact diameter of the chimney tube. It’s other function is to form a homogeneous external surface.

What Our Clients Are Saying!
You have very professional and polite service men! They gave me some helpful tips about how to use my fireplace and really educated me about the chimney cleaning process.
Thanks for completing the job. By the way, I've already been referring you to friends. Your service techs were the most professional vendors I've had at my house in so long. It was a pleasure doing business with you. The stainless steel liner you installed was so inexpensive compared to the other two estimates I had. Thank you for your honesty.
I would highly recommend Always Affordable Chimney. They were very honest and cooperative. I am going through a divorce and had to wait months for my ex’s contribution and Tommy was more than patient and understanding. The work was done efficiently, neatly and to the highest level of quality. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
These guys are great. The owner knows what it takes to get a job done. I had numerous issues and he found solutions, stuck with them and made it happen all while checking in on any of my concerns. I rarely come across anyone I would recommend to friends – I would sing this company's praises. From Tom and his intelligent crew to his wonderful office coordinator Justine (very professional and friendly), they came prepared, were considerate of my property, and did a fantastic job. They seem to love their work, go figure. Top of the line!
Thank you Tom for your exceptional job & advice at my Bay Shore home. I would have wasted a lot of money, time, & material if I listened to previous chimney companies. You're an angel!
