When you have a fireplace, the smoke and gases from the flames must go somewhere — and you don’t want them filling up the home. If these elements leave the house, you may end up ingesting carbon monoxide. Even if you don’t use a fireplace, your brick chimney repair is still important since it prevents excessive heat buildup.
Unfortunately, chimney cracks allow any excessive heat to escape into the walls instead. These cracks also allow rainwater to sneak inside and cause leaks. When this happens, you may have costly and unsafe structural damage on your hands.
Proper upkeep of your chimney’s flue liner is critical to prevent small leaks from becoming a bigger problem. Water seeping into cracks can damage the structure of your chimney or home.
Taking care of damage to your flue liner can prevent excessive heat from escaping into your walls in addition to preventing rainwater damage. Let us help to preserve the structural integrity of your chimney and walls, and save you some money in the process.
