Your chimney is weathering a lot, inside and out, regardless of how much it’s being used. Its cap, crown, mortar and flashing are being bombarded by the elements and the effects of changing temperatures, on the outside. Your flue liner, appliance and other internal parts are bearing the brunt of combustion every time you light a fire. Over time, parts will wear, get damaged or fail, and repairs will be necessary to keep your chimney in fully functioning order. The Chimney Safety Institute of America-certified technicians at A-1 Chimney Specialist have been repairing and restoring chimneys in the Tullahoma and Winchester area since 2000, and we’ve helped hundreds of happy clients enjoy their fireplace or stove safely and efficiently. No matter what your needs, from small repairs to a full chimney restoration, we can bring your chimney back to top shape.
Chimney masonry is durable, but it’s also porous. Water can get into your bricks and mortar and, expanding and contracting with changes in temperature, create damage, from cracks to spalling (chipping and flaking).
If your masonry is significantly damaged, you may need to have your chimney restored. A-1 Chimney Specialist’s licensed and certified technicians can inspect your chimney and offer a detailed analysis of the extent of your damage. If you need restoration work, we have the experience and know-how to bring your chimney back to looking and functioning like new.
