Your chimney, literally, takes a lot of heat. It sits up high at the top of your house, exposed to wind, rain, moisture and extreme temperatures day in and day out. Even the best well-constructed chimneys will require repairs and maintenance over time. Here is just a partical list of the chimney services & chimney repairs we do day in and day out. We have almost 4 decades of chimney repair experience, by highly trained, CSIA certified technicians. Please note, not all chimney services are available in every county within Ohio and Michigan, please call and inquire.
Most chimneys are built out of brick and mortar. These materials are porous by nature and will break down over time. The mortar that holds the bricks together will start to crack and gap. This can be caused by moisture, corrosive gases or extreme temperatures — or all of the above. As these cracks and gaps develop, the damage will start to accelerate. At the very least, your chimney will not function efficiently and may be dangerous to use. These cracks and gaps can allow hot gases to escape from your chimney liner and into the walls of your home, possibly causing a fire. Every chimney is different, especially when it comes to older homes. It wasn’t until the middle part of the 20th century that chimney liners became part of building code requirements, so some older homes have chimneys without liners. Even if your chimney was built with a liner, if you’re in an older home, you should definitely have your chimney inspected with a video scan to check the condition or the liner.
It’s been said many times, but we will say it again—water is a chimney’s worst enemy. There are many ways that water can get into your chimney. Even if you aren’t noticing leaks, moisture can get into your chimney structure, causing slow and steady damage. Our highly skilled, certified chimney technicians will check for signs of water damage, tracking it back to the source so the necessary chimney repairs can be made.
