The Advance Chimney Sweeps team has many years of experience providing world-class chimney service using state-of-the-art tools and trusted processes. As a preferred chimney sweep serving our region, we provide the services you need to keep your chimney working all season long.
Masonry Damage Can Be Detected During a Chimney Inspection
An annual chimney sweep and inspection are your first line of defense against problems with your chimney. Nevertheless, problems with your masonry will still sometimes arise from time to time. That’s why, during your inspection, we’ll let you know what types of chimney masonry repairs may be needed. However, without an annual inspection, these smaller issues with your masonry may grow into larger (and costlier) problems later.
Our expert technicians complete chimney inspections, sweeping, and repairs in Uniontown, Belle Vernon, Waynesburg, Greensburg, Washington, Monroeville, Bethel Park, Glenshaw, Cranberry, Wexford, Beaver Falls and throughout the Pittsburgh, PA and Morgantown, Fairmont, Clarksburg, WV regions and beyond!
Taking Care Of Masonry Issues
There are many types of chimney masonry repairs that we provide. Those include both tuckpointing and repointing, which help to solidify your chimney structure. It also includes repairing spalling and crumbling bricks as well as fixing any problems with your crown. Finally, we provide chimney waterproofing services which help to minimize the impact of these types of problems from reoccurring down the road.
Retrofits & Upgrades Available
In some cases, the homeowner may need or choose to upgrade their existing fireplace to address problems found with the chimney or flue. This may involve a wood-to-gas conversion. On the other hand, if you want to stick with a wood-burning fireplace but your liner condition has deteriorated significantly, we offer inserts that can upgrade your wood burning efficiency without extensive masonry or liner repairs to your chimney.
Preventing Water Damage
One of the primary benefits of effective chimney masonry repairs is that it helps to prevent leaks and water damage. Without repair, these issues can lead to mortar and brick deterioration, rot, mold, mildew, and costly problems in the chimney, fireplace and around various parts of your home.
Keeping Your Firebox Operational
Inside your home, we can also help maintain your firebox. As with your exterior masonry, this brick-and-mortar should be routinely inspected to look for signs of wear and tear. Again if the situation allows water in, your firebox may be affected too. If we find any deficiencies during our visit, we’ll let you know our recommended approach to this type of chimney masonry repair before we get started.
