SPECIAL SERVICES

This page highlights the additional special services we offer, going beyond the standard offerings to cater to unique needs and requirements of our valued customers.

 

Smoke Chamber Parging

Smoke chamber parging is essential for the safety and functionality of your chimney system. The smoke chamber is the area where smoke and gases accumulate before entering the flue, and without proper parging, it can become rough and uneven, causing smoke to linger and potentially leading to chimney fires or smoke-related issues. Parging smooths and insulates the smoke chamber, ensuring a more efficient flow of smoke up the chimney and reducing the risk of hazards, providing a safer and more effective fireplace or wood-burning appliance experience.

 

Stove Remuval

Having a stove or creosote buildup in the chimney can pose serious dangers. Creosote is a highly flammable substance that forms during the burning of wood, and when it accumulates on the chimney’s interior, it becomes a fire hazard. The smoke chamber, being the space where smoke collects before exiting the flue, is susceptible to creosote buildup. If creosote and debris are not properly removed, they can ignite and cause a chimney fire. Regular chimney inspections are crucial to check for creosote buildup, stove, and other obstructions, ensuring the chimney system is safe and preventing potential chimney fires that can lead to significant property damage and endanger occupants.

 

Prefab chimney siding

Repairing damaged siding for the chimney and exterior is crucial as the rotting wood not only compromises the structural integrity of the chimney but also poses risks of water infiltration and further damage to the surrounding areas, preventing potential hazards and maintaining the overall safety and aesthetics of your property.

Tuckpointing

Repairing damaged mortar in bricks and performing tuckpointing in the chimney is crucial for maintaining the chimney’s structural integrity and preventing water leaks and potential hazards. Over time, weather and wear can cause mortar to deteriorate, leading to gaps between bricks that allow water to seep into the chimney. Tuckpointing involves removing deteriorated mortar and replacing it with fresh mortar, ensuring a solid bond and sealing any gaps. This proactive maintenance not only enhances the chimney’s longevity but also safeguards your home from water damage, ultimately contributing to a safer and more efficient chimney system.

 

Furnace flue

Repairing or cleaning the flue of your furnace and water heater is of paramount importance to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Over time, debris, soot, and other obstructions can accumulate in the flue, restricting proper ventilation and causing carbon monoxide to backdraft into your living space. Regular maintenance ensures that the flue is clear and functioning correctly, safeguarding your family from the potentially life-threatening risks associated with carbon monoxide exposure. Maintaining a clean and properly functioning flue is an essential step in ensuring the safety and well-being of your home.
