Has your chimney sustained some wear and tear over these last winter months? Between the holidays and lots of freezing cold evenings, we’re sure you put it to a lot of use! Now that temperatures are rising, most homeowners find themselves building fires less and less, and soon, your chimney likely won’t see any more action until fall comes back around.
Many put little thought into ending their burning season. They simply stop using their fireplace, then wait until fall to schedule their annual maintenance. We know this because, once cold weather starts to come back, we get plenty of phone calls and other inquiries! We love that so many homeowners in the area invest in maintenance before their burning season begins again, but why wait until fall?
If you’re done with your fireplace for the season, call us now to schedule your inspection so you can get it done early. There are countless benefits to scheduling your maintenance in the springtime, so why waste any more time? Count on the CSIA-certified crew at A-1 Chimney Specialist today!
Warmer weather is ideal for patching up cracks, holes, and crumbling masonry. The materials we use for this type of work need time to properly cure in a certain temperature range that allows this to occur with no other hiccups. Your repair jobs are guaranteed to look better and last longer, should you have our techs come out to your house this spring.
Along with this, warmer weather is perfect for certain services, such as waterproofing. If you know anything about water and your masonry, then you know the two don’t make a good pair! When water gets absorbed into your brickwork, it causes rust, clogs, decay, and a variety of other problems. Those issues, combined with the freeze-thaw process, can really take a toll on your entire system.
Avoid water damage and other deterioration by investing in waterproofing from the very start. Our team of experts can get the job done right, using products that both protect your masonry and allow it the opportunity to breathe and vent out vapors. Give us a call today, so we can help you out!
On top of it all, scheduling a chimney inspection now makes life less stressful down the line. Fall can be a busy time of year for both our chimney company and the community members we serve, making scheduling a bit of a struggle at times. We want to visit your home as soon as possible in the event that you need immediate repairs, but when slots fill up fast, this can be a challenge.
Let’s say we fit you in easily for your annual inspection, then notice repairs are needed before your burning season can begin. You’re forced to go through the scheduling process once again, and if we aren’t able to meet with you right away, you won’t be using your fireplace for quite some time!
Don’t put it off. Once fall comes around, you’ll be happy this maintenance is off your to-do list! Call us in now!
