Answer: In most cases
Explanation: Chimney liner installations range from insanely simple... measure, cut, drop, connect, to damn near impossible. The latter is where experience comes in. As far as insulating, it's not that hard at all. If I was going through the trouble of dropping a liner myself, I would take the time to insulate it w/wrap.
