When a fireplace flue is damaged or breached a stainless steel liner is need to be installed to make the flue safe for burning wood or gas. A lot of older homes have chimneys that were designed to handle less efficient appliances that spewed out a higher volume of gasses at much greater temperatures. The newer appliances using the chimney (Furnace/Boiler and or Hot Water Herter) require a smaller area for venting because they are more efficient and produce a lesser volume of exhaust gasses at lower temperatures. So when venting newer and more efficient appliances excessive condensation and moisture is generated and absorbed into brick and mortar. This will damage the chimney and cause it to fall apart.
