Chimney maintenance is important in terms of protecting your investment and maintaining the value of your home, and for ensuring your family's safety and comfort. Chimney sweeping services remove soot, level 1 creosote buildup, and any lightweight obstructions (such as small bird's nests) from the inside of the chimney flue. Every chimney needs a cap. Without one, the interior of your chimney is subject to deterioration from rain, snow, down drafts, airborne sparks/embers, and other elements. A chimney cap also prevents birds, rodents, and other wildlife from entering your chimney. Chimney repair services include crown repair and replacement, firebox repair, tuckpointing, brick resetting, and flue tile repair. Chimney repair services correct conditions of damage and deterioration, restoring and helping to maintain structural integrity.
