Upgrading Insulation: The Importance of Chimney Barriers
Did you know that installing a chimney barrier between a brick and block chimney and attic insulation is required by building codes? Whether a home’s chimney is for exhaust and venting, or if it includes a fireplace chimney, installing a chimney barrier is part of any retrofit insulation job.
We install Chimney Shield barriers. These barriers are made from 26 gauge sheet metal and creates an effective barrier between a chimney and loose fill insulation.
When reviewing your attic for an insulation upgrade, our estimators will check your existing chimney barrier in the event it needs to be upgraded before adding additional insulation.
