If there is a problem, we’ll take care of it. First, we will visit your location to provide a free estimate. If you have already had a chimney company come out and give an estimate, please call us for a second estimate or opinion on what could be wrong. We clean the chimney in the traditional manner using rods and brushes, complete with a 21 point inspection report.
Brick chimneys require routine maintenance including the concrete or brickwork. Even if it has been converted to gas from wood, the chimney is still exposed to weather, and concrete can become chipped or water damaged. It is important to take care of your chimney before there is a serious problem.
A chimney cap protects the inside of the chimney from water and animals, but often times it may get blown off, or it may need to be replaced due to age. Additionally, it needs to be stainless steel so as not to rust.
Our company provides animal removal for critters that may have gotten into those chimneys without caps. Pre-fabricated chimneys are mostly in newer homes, and require different types of maintenance or repair than brick. They contain a metal cap or chase cover that also needs to be inspected from time to time for rust and general wear and tear. If general maintenance is not done on your pre-fabricated chimney and chase cover, rust will worsen over time and cause cracking of the chase cover. Once this happen, you can have water coming through and leaking into your home.
