We Repair or Replace Whatever Is Wrong with Your Chimney
The longer the chimney at your Huntsville-area home is neglected, the more problems that can crop up. Save yourself the money and hassle and keep your home and family safe by attending to chimney issues as they arise.
Here are four key benefits of having your chimney repaired and serviced.
Stop and prevent chimney leaks: Damage to bricks and mortar joints and components such as the chimney cap, chimney crown and flashing can lead to a leaky chimney. Chimney leaks that go unrepaired can cause system-wide damage.
Stop and prevent extreme structural damage: Early signs of masonry damage include loose bricks, small mortar cracks, dusty areas on the roof around the chimney and signs of water intrusion such as brick discoloration. If these issues aren’t addressed with the proper tuckpointing, brick replacement and other chimney repair services, the result can be a collapsed chimney.
Keep smoke drafting properly: A clogged chimney cap and a damper that is too rusted to fully open are two reasons for sluggish smoke drafting. Obstructions in the flue also can cause smoke to sit in the flue or back up into the house. Smoke is bad enough, but the invisible and odorless carbon monoxide it carries is fatal to people and pets.
Prevent chimney fires: Creosote is the cause of most chimney fires. Damaged chimney liners & smoke chambers can allow large amounts of this substance to build up in the cracked, rough areas, making a chimney fire much more likely – and much more severe when it happens. Certified chimney repair services include smoke chamber parging (cleaning/smoothing) and chimney liner repair or replacement to keep your home safe.
