Relining Basics Seminar
In this half-day class, we will discuss why we reline chimneys and the signs that indicate that a reline is called for. We will cover the various math equations that we need to understand as well as the correct sizing chimney liners. Planning and executing the liner installation and dealing effectively with some of the problems you might encounter are critical to maintaining profits when relining chimneys.
