Don’t wait for your chimney to become a hazard, schedule a chimney repair service today and ensure your home’s safety.
Chimneys are a vital part of a working fireplace. But over time, the elements can wreak all kinds of havoc on your chimney which is why it’s important to have your chimney inspected on a regular basis.
Damaged masonry, missing or damaged chimney caps or malfunctioning dampers are all potential hazards that need to be addressed. Once moisture gets into your masonry and begins to freeze, thaw and refreeze over the seasons, the constant expansion and contraction of water can eventually cause chimney damage that will need to be repaired.
Over time, harsh weather and fireplace heat can cause the mortar in your chimney joints to crack and crumble, leading to water infiltration and structural damage. If these gaps let water into your chimney, they can cause a myriad of problems for homeowners.
Fortunately, this issue can be corrected through a process called repointing.
Repointing is the process of removing the damaged mortar between bricks, blocks or stone and replacing it with new mortar. Our team at Just Chimneys & Stucco Remediation has the tools, skills and know-how to properly repoint your chimney to protect it for many years.
Most older homes, and even many newer ones, have unlined chimney flues. Over time, combustion gases and moisture degrade the interior of the flue and mortar joints in the brick or stonework, increasing the risk of deadly gases venting into your home. If your chimney was built without a liner or your current liner is defective, it’s time to call the experts at Just Chimneys & Stucco Remediation.
We install stainless steel chimney liners for wood and pellet appliances as well as oil and gas burning systems. Unlike some of our competitors, our liners are made from sturdy high-quality components, that provide a smooth, durable, easy-to-maintain surface that will resist creosote buildup and last for years.
Just Chimneys & Stucco Remediation is one of the few companies in our area that is a certified installer of the FireGuard ® chimney repair system. This patented technology from Firesafe Industries is a pure ceramic resurfacing and mortar joint repair system ensures maximum penetration and consistent coat distribution.
An overview of the process can be viewed in the video.
A chimney cap is a critical component of your fireplace system, because it prevents water, debris and animals from entering your chimney. A missing or damaged chimney cap can result in considerable unseen damage to your flue and is an invitation for unwanted animals to nest in your chimney. We offer chimney cap screen repair and replacement to keep your chimney safe and secure.
And as part of our inspection process, we will also check the condition of your chimney crown. The crown is the solid piece of concrete that channels water away from your chimney flue. Constant exposure to the elements can result in chimney crown cracking and crumbling over time, potentially leading to water infiltration and costly repairs. If necessary, Just Chimneys and Stucco Remediation will professionally repair or replace your damaged chimney crown.
A chimney damper closes off the flue to prevent air from flowing down the chimney when it is not in use. However, dampers can become worn or damaged over time from the acidic corrosion caused by moisture mixing with fireplace gases. A damper that is stuck open or closed, or simply not functioning properly, can be a hazard to you and your family. As part of our thorough chimney inspection process, our team will address and correct any issues to ensure that your chimney damper is functioning properly and safely.
