When homeowners in Wappingers Falls NY need chimney repairs, they trust the masonry experts at Hudson Valley Chimney Service to get it done right. Some of the most common chimney repairs include repairing a leaky chimney, replacing chimney liners, installing inserts & stoves, and chimney restorations. Our thousands of satisfied customers appreciate that we always provide a complete written quote for the labor and materials required to solve their chimney problem.
A damaged chimney liner can be a serious health hazard. Not only does it increase the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, but the high heat can ignite flammable materials in the walls and roof near the chimney. Since most chimney liner problems are detected during a routine chimney inspection, homeowners that do not have annual inspections are most at risk. Moisture, mold, debris and animal droppings from a leaky chimney or damaged chimney cap can damage the chimney liner. We install a variety of chimney liners, but we highly recommend U.L. listed steel liners as they are excellent in absorbing high temperatures, are extremely durable and long-lasting.
The chimney crown is designed to protect and extend the life of the chimney and masonry work. The severe winter conditions in Wappinger Falls NY and the entire Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown region can cause the crown to crack. When this occurs water can penetrate the chimney system causing damage to internal components and the underlying brick work. Our masonry experts can repair or rebuild damaged chimney crowns.
Chimney Caps & Chase Tops
When water and/or debris is discovered in the flue, a damaged or missing chimney cap is often the culprit. Because water and obstructions can increase the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning, its important that it be repaired as quickly as possible. Also, hot embers can spark a fire without a chimney cap and spark guard. We also install decorative chase tops that provide additional protection from water and down drafts while increasing the aesthetic appeal of your chimney.
