Professional Approach - Safety Equipment - Property Protection - Trained Workmen
Chimneys are exposed to the harsh weather outside and hot combustion exhausts inside the flues. These extreme temperature differences cause masonry, clay flues and brick to crack and the chimney quickly deteriorates.
When the flue liner breaks down, chimneys become unsafe and could become blocked with deteriorating brick and broken flue pieces, causing toxic carbon monoxide to back draft into your home.
When the facing of the brick becomes cracked or begins to spall - break apart, rain penetrates deep into the brick. In the winter months moisture freezes and expands causing the brick to rapidly break apart. This allows even more water to penetrate and rapid deterioration follows.
We do excellent brick repairs and chimney rebuilds and chimney removal when needed.
Modern Natural gas furnaces run much more efficiently than in the past and lose less heat up the chimney. Since they run cooler than in the past, the exhaust gases rise slower in the bigger flue size and thus form more acidic condensation while trying to vent up the cold or frozen flues. This condensation runs back down the flue and since heat always seeks cold, it seeps between the flues and works its way toward the cold outside brickwork where it freezes.
We can install stainless steel or aluminium liners matched to the appliances' vent specifications to optimize their efficiency and help save the brickwork from the acidic condensation.
Chimney maintenance will also help prevent the risk of gas poisoning, chimney fires, and water leaks.
Our inspector has 36 years of experience building, repairing and removing dangerous chimneys. He will inspect and make recommendations to repair or remove dangerous chimneys.
We can safely tear down and rebuild or repair your chimney, while we ensure the roof and grounds are protected and match the brick and mortar.
Reasons to Remove Unused Chimneys
Unused chimneys in poor condition should be removed before water damage occurs inside your home. Falling bricks and masonry can cause extensive damage to your roof, eaves troughs and your vehicles parked underneath.
Unused chimneys are welcome homes to wildlife; squirrels raccoons, birds and bats. They find their way inside your attic, chew on wood and wiring. They leave feces behind, often getting trapped inside and die. Horrible odours and maggots occur as they decompose.
We can safely remove the chimney and repair the roof before this damage occurs.
