Unlined brick chimney that wasn’t visible from the ground

Concealed unlined brick chimney that looked like a concrete block chimney with a clay-tile liner above the roof line. No liner = fire hazard and risk of carbon monoxide leaking into the home! This turned out to be a low cost fix by having a Certified Chimney Sweep or licensed HVAC Contractor install a stainless steel flex liner down the center.
