Chimney Cleaning: A buildup of creosote and other debris in your chimney can create a fire hazard. Our team can clean your chimney to remove any buildup and improve airflow.
Chimney Cap Repair/Installation: Chimney caps prevent debris, animals, and rain from entering your chimney. We can repair or install a new chimney cap to protect your fireplace.
Chimney Crown Repair: The chimney crown is the top of the chimney that protects it from water damage. If the crown is cracked or damaged, it can lead to leaks and other problems. We can repair or replace your chimney crown to prevent further damage.
Masonry Repair: Over time, the mortar between the bricks or stones in your fireplace can deteriorate, which can lead to structural problems. Our team can repair or replace the mortar to restore the structural integrity of your fireplace.
Damper Repair/Replacement: The damper controls the airflow in your fireplace. If it’s damaged or not functioning properly, it can lead to poor airflow, which can result in inefficient burning and smoke buildup. We can repair or replace your damper to ensure proper airflow.
Common Causes of Fireplace Repair
Every fireplace eventually will need repairs. In many cases, the problem is related to the chimney more than the fireplace. Various things can go wrong with a fireplace and chimney. Here are just some of the common causes of fireplace problems:
- Chimney: these structures don’t look complicated, but chimneys are very complex. Chimneys are built to keep your home and family safe from heat, water, smoke and the elements. If anything goes wrong within a stack, the effect can be devastating. When it comes to keeping your chimney in good repair, regular maintenance is vital. This includes annual inspections, cleanings (chimney sweepings), repointing and more. In some cases, damage may even require a complete reconstruction. No matter what problems occur, our professional team is ready to get to work to put your fireplace back in working order.
- Damper Problems: if your damper becomes caked in soot it may fail to open. A broken or cracked damper can keep smoke trapped inside of the house, unable to escape through the chimney.
- Flue Issues: a broken flue needs to be replaced to maintain the fireplace working properly.
- Structural problems: over time even the best-built fireplace may deteriorate. When this happens, your masonry may need to be reinforced or replaced. Whether you need basic pointing or a complete brick overhaul, our team knows what to do to bring your fireplace up to code and make it safe to use once again.
