The flue tile at the top of my chimney has been chipping off for the
past few years. It is 8 1/2 X 8 1/2 and sticks out about 8 inches
from the top. I have my
furnace serviced every year. The top is now uneven because only two
sections has chipped off. Is this just normal wear? Should I be
concerned that the uneven top could affect the draft of the chimney on
windy days? Should I have this repaired or just chip the remaining
get it checked out by a professional. It is likely only the top edge that
is giving out due to weather and some sort of sealant will probably stop
that if it's not too bad. But on the other hand it could be a tile problem
that is affecting the tiles down inside the chimney out of view. This could
lead to Carbon Monoxide getting into the house and..... well we all know
what that's good for!
Love your family - get it fixed correctly!
