Masonry chimneys are built with durable materials and, yet, chimney repairs are often needed in Racine WI. The harsh outdoor elements, severe weather events, and moisture can all cause a wide range of chimney problems. Chimney caps and chimney chase tops help to prevent damage from occurring, but the accessories themselves need installation and sometimes repair, as we
Chimney maintenance involves annual chimney inspections and chimney cleaning either annually or as needed. Chimney cleaning is needed most frequently for wood-burning fireplaces and stoves. Flammable creosote is deposited inside the chimney liner every time a wood fire is lit. If the creosote isn’t removed, a hazardous chimney fire could be ignited and the creosote could create an obstruction that prevents toxic fumes from exiting the home. When chimney repairs are needed, it’s best to schedule repairs as quickly as possible so that the damage doesn’t worsen and result in more expensive repairs.

Chimney liners, like fireboxes, are essential for safety because they protect the homes in Racine WI from two dangers. First, the intensely high temperatures inside a chimney liner could cause a house fire if the heat gets through even a small crack and reaches combustible materials. The same small breach could allow toxic gases to enter the home and endanger its occupants. Our professional chimney sweeps typically recommend the installation of a stainless-steel liner replacement when chimney liner damage has occurred.
