If you have done your homework on chimneys, you might have noticed that many other products are listed, too. What makes CFS different?
Let’s consider a car analogy: Your car needs a new paint job. Do you take it to the quick-mart place, or do you bring it to a leading, professional shop? The quick-mart job will get you a nice looking car – for a little while, at least. When you drive it home, it will look great, just as good as it would if the pros did the job. But once the elements get to it – rain, snow, road salt, sand – things might not stay looking so good. You’ve seen those cars on the road, with the paint peeling and coming off. “There goes someone who went to the quick-mart place.”
So, how will your chimney stand up, over time? The fact that the chimney needed repair in the first place is often due to corrosive elements: sulfurous emissions from burning oil, chlorides from burning gas, or creosote from burning wood; and often a combination over time of multiple corrosive agents. Just about any installation will look great on day one, and many products will pass a certification test. But what about next year, or ten years from now? This is where CFS shines.
The ceramic CFS layer isn’t subject to the problems of corrosion that many metallic lining systems face, because it is not metallic in the first place. Doesn’t it make sense that a ceramic material, one of a class of materials that people have been using for thousands of years for the sake of durability and heat resistance, would make the perfect chimney material?
What CFS brings to the industry is a patented, world-class ceramic formula, specifically designed for your chimney system. The CFS formula gets it right.
