Lining a Chimney

Does anyone know if we can line our own chimney?

Thank you,

Are you talking about putting a fireplace insert in the existing fireplace and then putting a liner up the inside of the original fireplace chimney? If so, we did this 9 years ago. We bought all we needed from a fireplace company. We inserted the chimney liner inside our chimney ourselves. We have a beautiful fireplace that we use each winter.

Or are you talking about making your own liner out of metal/aluminum of some sort and inserting that into your chimney. If so, call your insurance company to see if they will then insure your home, should you have not made it properly and there is a fire.
