While it seems like the snow keeps falling, one thing is for sure, spring is right around the corner. Before the rainy season hits, take time now to make sure your chimney is in good shape. As temperatures rise and drop as they do in the early spring, water seeping into the masonry can expand, creating bigger cracks and holes.
Homeowners that take the necessary precautions to protect their chimney will prevent costly repairs and keep their home and family safe. Get your fireplace and chimney cleaned and inspected annually to avoid structural issues and protect the integrity of your chimney. Make sure that you have a chimney cap installed to deter critters from entering. Coat any exposed areas of the chimney crown with a waterproof sealant to prohibit water intrusion.
Dave Lambert, the owner of Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps, mentioned: “Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps will do a comprehensive safety and maintenance inspection of your fireplace and chimney. We’ll provide you with a full inspection report and go over what we find with you and answer all your questions and give you all your options. We have very economical prices and we fully warranty all our work.”
A past client of Blue Sky stated: “ The entire experience with Blue Sky was great. We
had to have the top crown/cap replaced on our chimney because it was disintegrating
and a couple of the flue tile were cracked so water would leak down the chimney in
heavy rain storms. The communication and responsiveness was some of the best I’ve had dealing with contractors over the years.”
