What are the risks if I do not repair chimney flue tile?
If the wood burns too quickly, debris will reach the damper and begin to cause problems with your exhaust. Smoke and carbon monoxide can enter the home in dangerous levels. It will directly impact the health of you, your family and any pets. Creosote will begin to stick to the flue and access areas outside the flue. A dangerous chimney fire can result from failure to repair chimney flue tile, which can cause the entire home to burn.
