Chimney Repair & Restoration Services

 

Our experienced technicians are able to inspect, repair and rebuild all aspects of your chimney and fireplace system. Whether it’s wood stoves, fireplaces, chimneys, or dryer vents, we understand the intricacies of the venting systems in your home. Chimneys are more than meets the eye! Chimney repairs are different than many other household repairs because your chimney is specially designed to utilize the physics of “draft”, which are unique to every space.

A chimney must efficiently and safely remove toxic substances from your home or people die. We are not trying to be overly dramatic here. Chimneys are serious business! Unfortunately, many people do not realize just how serious they are. An improper repair can not only jeopardize the value of your home, but can literally take your life or the lives of your loved ones. Because of the critical nature of the integrity of a chimney, we recommend that any repair that you might consider making to your chimney be done by a certified, master chimney sweep or other qualified skilled mason. At Chimney Cricket our repair and restoration team carefully considers the unique design and condition of your chimney and gives you a product that will keep you venting safer, cleaner and more efficiently into the future. Let our experience provide you with a safe solution that fits your needs.

Chimney Crowns

Cracked, worn and improperly built crowns are another common problem. If your chimney crown is cracked or poorly constructed — allowing water penetration — we can build a proper concrete crown that's guaranteed not to crack. When less comprehensive damage is present, we can apply a coat and sealant product to ensure proper water shedding for years to come.

Interior Masonry Repairs

Water damage resulting from a missing chimney cap or other exterior damages, coupled with extreme temperature changes takes its toll on the fireplace interior as well. Firebox damage is a common problem in a lot of fireplaces. This kind of damage is far more than an eye-sore. It can effectively reduce the clearance to combustibles in the fireplace - causing a significant fire hazard. We do partial to complete firebox rebuilding as well as offer a full line of firebacks to extend the life of your firebox. Ask your technician for more information on how to beautify your room as well as increase the efficiency and extend the life of your firebox with a cast-iron fireback.

We also repair and/or rebuild outer and inner hearths to make sure your fireplace has proper clearance to combustibles in this critical "burn-zone". The hottest temperature in most wood fires are found in the red embers that rest on the hearth after the fire has been going for awhile. These temperatures can range from 1200 - 1500 degrees. When you consider the air circulating around the fire, the grates and other nearby object will linger around 1000 degrees. Exposing wood members and other building materials to these temperatures can have catastrophic consequences.

Have peace of mind the next time you snuggle up to the comfort of your fireplace or wood-burning stove; have your fireplace inspected this week. Call (610) 833-1034 to schedule your appointment.
