Water will find any point of weakness and seep into your system, so finding the source -- or sources -- of a leak can be a complex process. The CSIA-certified technicians at A-1 Chimney Specialist find and repair chimney leaks every day, and we've been helping homeowners in the Tullahoma and Winchester, Tenn., area since 2000. If you think you have a leak, call us today or schedule an appointment online -- we want to help.
Chimney liners serve a hugely valuable role in your chimney's ability to function at its best. They can cover up dangerous cracks and gaps in your flue, protecting your family from the dangerous gases that result from combustion. A CSIA-certified A-1 Chimney Specialist technician can help you figure out whether chimney relining is right for your home, and if so, what material and approach is the best option for your needs and circumstances.
The chimney crown is one of your chimney’s most important defenses against weather and intruder-related damage and decay. Unfortunately, not all crowns are created equal, and not all crowns provide the same level of protection. The technicians at A-1 Chimney Specialist have extensive experience identifying leaks, and can repair or replace your crown quickly and properly. We will not only provide you with a crown that is built to last, but we can also make waterproofing recommendations to further protect your chimney.
An "outside mount custom chimney cap" covers the entire chimney including the crown. Chimney crowns will last much longer with a properly designed full width custom chimney cap. This looks 1000% better than a small flue top cap alone, and adds an architectural element to the chimney while protecting the entire structure much better.
Your chimney’s damper blocks off the flue when it’s not in use, which serves two functions: it keeps rain, snow and other elements out and it keeps the heated or cooled air in your home from escaping. If you’re experiencing issues with your damper, an experienced A-1 Chimney Specialist technician can assess whether it can be repaired (usually by adjusting and/or lubricating the moving parts), or whether you’ll need to replace the damper.
