Effective chimney repairs in
Depending on the results of our inspection, we may need to perform several types of chimney repairs, such as:
- A missing or damaged chimney cap;
- A damaged damper;
- Or crumbling flue tiles.
Chimney leaks often stem from one of those problems. A missing chimney cap can lead to both blockages as well as leaks and should be fixed ASAP. A damaged damper can also contribute to chimney leaks, not to mention problems with airflow in and out of your flue. Beyond that, flue tiles can become worn and eventually break off. Chimney liners, in the form of stainless-steel inserts, are one way to repair this problem.
