Keeping Your Brickwork In Good ShapeProtecting your chimney from the cold and from water damage

Lots of things contribute to a sturdy structure. Preventing leaks and excess moisture plays a big role in keeping your masonry strong, as does addressing cracks, crumbling, and other damages in a timely manner. Your brickwork needs to stay strong in order to provide the lasting support your system requires, so it’s best to protect it right from the very beginning.

Waterproofing plays a big role in this. Your brickwork is very absorbent, so protecting it from rain and bad weather will make a big difference in how well it functions over time. Unlike paints and sealers that you get from the store, the products we use are vapor permeable, ensuring your system can vent out previously absorbed moisture, as well as fumes and toxins from your fireplace.

Addressing repairs and other problems before putting your appliance whether it is your furnace, wood stove or fireplace to use will make a big impact on your system’s functionality, too. Using your chimney/appliance that has damage could put your entire home and family at risk of experiencing fires or gas leaks. It’s not worth taking any chances, so invest in care right away. Our experts can help you out with it all.

Keeping Your Home Safer

Like we said, avoiding regular maintenance and repair work can lead to some dangerous scenarios down the line. Carbon monoxide exposure is one risk you and your loved ones can face when a system doesn’t get professional attention from time to time. Carbon monoxide poisoning is deadly when not treated right away, and it’s colorless and odorless nature make it very hard to detect.

You’ll also be better protected from chimney fires and house fires when you allow our technicians the chance to inspect your chimney annually. They’ll spot creosote build-up, clogs, deterioration, and any other issues that need to be resolved. Creosote accumulation is known for causing chimney fires, and clogs and excess debris can affect airflow and draft. All in all, insight from a qualified CSIA certified chimney professional is extremely beneficial and could save you from a lot of expensive repair work down the line!
