Anyone familiar with chimney liners for gas fire

I am getting two chimneys rebuilt soon and would like to get the liner renewed for a gas (Gazco woodburning stove type) fire. I removed the fire a year or so ago which was a mistake. The existing liner was presumably ok but it seemed only just long enough to connect onto the fire and it will now be approaching 15 years old.

It's only one level up plus roof height to the chimney from my fire. My thoughts were asking the stonemasons to put the new liner in situ. I will get gas fitter to put the fire back and connect it.

Does this sound feasible and if so can I buy the liner and whatever else is needed at the chimney end? Thanks

I haven't spoken to him about it other than him saying he'd fit the fire

Just feel it could be a right rip off to get the liner fitted by another source when the scaffold is up and there looks like the potential to drop liner in at same time, but of course it depends how easy it is to do.

It is pretty simple but technically the gas fire installer should either do it or be very convinced that it has been done correctly.

I suppose the greatest risk might be of the liner falling out at the top and the fire not evacuating the flue gases which would be a very dangerous situation.

I hope you will have a CO monitor fitted correctly in the room!
