Chimney Repairs and Rebuilding Overview
The chimney liner is an extremely important component of your chimney system. The flue lining helps protect the chimney walls and prevent embers from reaching combustible portions of your home such as your walls or attic. If your chimney liner becomes deteriorated, it is a serious hazard that could lead to a chimney fire. To prevent this, you may need to have your liner completely replaced. There is a wide array of chimney liners and our experts are here to answer any and all questions you may have as to which type of liner works best for your unique needs.
Chimney Crown Repair/Rebuilding
One portion of your chimney system that is exposed to weather is your chimney crown. Located at the top of the chimney, the crown helps protect the flue and internal structures. If any damage occurs to the crown, a lot of damage can occur to the internal structures once water has an entrance through an opening or crack in the cement chimney crown.
Our technicians are here to ensure your crown is sealed or rebuilt if needed. We are pros at rebuilding masonry chimney crowns and will help keep your home and chimney protected from unwanted water damage.
Chances are your chimney is exposed to the elements on a regular basis. Over time, harsh conditions, such rain and bad storms can cause wear and tear on your chimney, especially the masonry. To stop this, a water repellant coating can be applied to the masonry to ensure your chimney lasts longer.
Another way to prevent water from seeping into your chimney, roof, or attic is to have any missing or loose flashing repaired. If left untreated, the moisture can lead to mold, damage to drywall, or wood rot, all expensive repairs. By having your flashing repaired, damages from water can be prevented, saving you money in the long run.
