There are a lot of potential issues that can arise from owning a chimney. Most of these issues are general upkeep problems that are naturally associated with owning a chimney. For example – creosote buildup or soot stains. Other issues, however, may require a chimney technician coming over for a chimney repair. At Hale’s Chimney Cleaning & Repair we have seen just about everything regarding chimney repairs. We would like to discuss some of the more common chimney repairs that our CSIA certified technicians have come across and are qualified to help you with!
Every chimney needs a chimney liner. Chimney liners are a metal or clay tiles that make the inside of your chimney airtight. This allows fireplace byproducts (smoke, soot, carbon, etc) to be efficiently removed out of your house. In addition, the liner also protects the bricks inside your chimney from smoke. Over time, these tiles may pop out or become worn. Unfortunately, if your chimney liner is not working properly, there are a number of issues that may occur! These include smoke leaking into your house, inefficient heating, and other safety issues. At Hale’s Chimney Cleaning & Repair we are the best in the business when it comes to chimney relining.
Weather can wear your chimney down throughout the years. When moisture is allowed to seep into pores and cracks in your mortar or bricks and freeze, the weathering process speeds up. This can make your chimney look worn out and old. When bricks start falling out of place, it also becomes a safety issue! Here at Hale’s Chimney Cleaning & Repair we have expert masons that can help you decide the steps needed for your masonry repairs.
Leaks are a common problem with chimneys. Consequently, it can be hard to determine where the leaks may be coming from. There are too many potential areas that may be allowing air or moisture to come into the house. This makes it difficult for the untrained eye to figure out the exact location of a leak. Fortunately, at Hale’s Chimney Cleaning & Repair we have a trained eye and have experience repairing all sorts of chimney leaks.
