Properly repairing a chimney takes the knowledge and experience of well-trained professionals. Our crew is familiar with all aspects and complexities of your chimney system and can repair small issues quickly, before they become a big problem. The chimney is often the most neglected aspect of your home, often because it is “out of sight, out of mind”. Not to mention, it functions fairly well even when it is in need of servicing and repair. You may think that skipping regular maintenance & minor repairs is no big deal, but we highly recommend taking care of problems immediately before they become and expensive hassle.
Fixing a Leaky Chimney | Chimney Waterproofing
Water is your chimney’s worst enemy and the cause of very expensive chimney repairs. A few good indications that you are facing water damage include things like white staining on your chimney (known as efflorescence), cracked or deteriorating mortar, spalling bricks, or masonry erosion. The masonry materials, wood, and metal that all make up your chimney structure are all adversely affected by constant contact with water. After years of environmental exposure, your chimney could be in need of some necessary repairs to keep it functioning properly and to save the integrity of the structure.
In order to prevent serious water damage, we offer a number of preventative repairs such as:
- Chimney Cap Installation
- Stainless Steel Chimney Liners
- Chimney Waterproofing
- Chimney Flashing Repair & Replacement
- Chimney Crown Sealant
Chimney Liner Installation | Chimney Relining
A deteriorating chimney liner is a hazard and should be dealt with in a timely manner to prevent a disaster. A functioning chimney liner is one of the most important components of your entire chimney system and is essential to the safe operation of your fireplace. The liner protects the chimney walls from excessive heat and allows the combustible gases and smoke to properly exit the home. If a chimney liner is in poor condition, it subjects the structure to possible chimney fires and can even allow toxic gas to enter into surrounding walls, the attic, or even into your living space.
During your annual inspection, our NFI certified chimney technicians will examine the state and condition of your liner and recommend service if necessary. We offer a chimney relining service to replace old, worn out liners, or we can install a liner if your chimney never had one put in when it was built.
