Did spring rains do a number on your chimney system? If so, now is the time to call us in before summer storms do any more damage. Keeping your chimney and fireplace maintained and protected throughout these warmer months guarantees you won’t have to stress this fall when you’re ready to light some fires. Let us help you keep everything in tip-top shape. Check out some of the water prevention and leak control services now!
Fixing up any cracks, holes, or other damages throughout your chimney crown is essential for protecting your fireplace. Leaks can easily sneak in through these openings, causing you all types of issues like rot, rust, mold, and more. This excess water will also damage your brickwork and chimney liner and it will cost you a pretty penny when you add up all that repair work.
Cracks in the crown also keep it from performing as efficiently as possible. Chimney crowns are designed to keep rain, snow, and other types of moisture away from the sides of your chimney, ensuring your brickwork and mortar don’t crumble and break down. This means it has to be designed right and made from the proper materials to effectively do its job.
Whether you need repair work done or an entire crown rebuilt, the team at CinderBox Chimney can help you out. We’re CSIA and NFI certified, so you can rest easy with the knowledge that we know our stuff! Count on us right away so you stay safer from bad weather in the months ahead.
Chimney Cap Installation
Chimney caps are another vital part of keeping water out of your chimney flue. They sit overtop the flue, covering it up, so nothing can enter and start wreaking havoc. And this doesn’t just go for water! Chimney caps also keep out birds and other animals, as well, so you don’t need to stress about nesting materials and trapped critters clogging things up.
For an affordable way to get more protection, chimney caps are the way to go. Let our team install yours today!
Protecting Your Brickwork
Finally, you want to ensure your brickwork is as safe as possible. Since it is so absorbent, you’ll need to equip it with a shield that blocks out water, without ruining the cosmetic appeal of a masonry chimney. That’s where our waterproofing services come in! Our products are vapor-permeable so nothing can get in, but vapors and pre-absorbed moisture can still get out. It also carries a 10-year warranty, so you know you’re good to go for the long haul!
Don’t Put It Off Any Longer
