All Repairs Covered
Chimneys may look straightforward, but there are multiple parts to their anatomy, all that need to be working properly in order for your fireplace to function safely within your home. Not all chimney problems are immediately evident, especially since it’s not necessary to use your fireplace all year around in Raleigh.
However, safety is always our priority. When you hire Mr. Soot Chimney to come to your property for chimney repair, we will complete a full chimney inspection upon arrival. Thoroughly inspecting your fireplace and chimney ensures that we don’t miss any of the potential issues you may be facing.
While blockages are obvious to the untrained eye, brickwork problems, flue cracks, creosote, and especially cap, liner, and crown problems require a second look.
Creosote is the main culprit for any chimney issues. If we suspect you have too much creosote, flue cracks, liner problems, or anything else, we’ll take to cleaning it away. Creosote is highly dangerous to your health and home, especially if left untreated for a long time.
Avoid fire hazards and higher repair costs – as soon as you spot a problem with your chimney, get in touch with Mr. Soot Chimney.
Chimney caps can get clogged by flammable deposits that build up as you use your fireplace. If left alone, you will be dealing with smoke and fire blowing back into your home when you light up your fireplace!
Most chimney problems stem from a lack of attention over time. Chimney caps are one of the first problems because their function restricts the air coming through them. When air full of smoke is limited, it quickly leaves behind creosote residue that needs to be cleaned. Since you can’t get up on your roof all the time, you should call Mr. Soot Chimney approximately once per year to ensure you are safe throughout the year.
Chimney crown repair
Your chimney’s crown is especially susceptible to freeze-thaw damage. While this damage may be something that can go unnoticed for years, it will build up over time and require fixing. With regular inspections you can save yourself more expensive chimney crown repairs by catching damage early.
Once your chimney crown begins to deteriorate, the concrete sealant around it begins to crumble away, leaving the flue pipe exposed, which can lead to water leaking down into your home. If you look up to your roof and see a crumbling chimney, make sure you call us right away because it can lead to further, more expensive problems.
Your chimney has a pretty long lifespan, especially when maintained properly. However, the mortar keeping chimney bricks together has a shorter lifespan of roughly 25 years. The connecting points between two bricks, or the mortar joints, will require repair first in the form of tuck pointing.
Depending on the severity of your problem, we will be able to complete spot repairs or start right from scratch by taking down the bricks that seal the flue pipe and putting new ones up. The best way to ensure precise tuckpointing is by redoing the bricks ourselves. As the saying goes, if you want something done right – do it yourself.
We will determine the extent of your tuckpointing repair needs by completing a full chimney inspection and will do so while maintaining the utmost safety while on your roof. Our team is safety certified and well trained on all roof-related procedures mandated.
Call Mr. Soot Chimney to fix your tuckpointing today.
