Let Us Address Your Chimney Repairs

By | Tagged with: Tags: , , | Comments Off on Let Us Address Your Chimney Repairs

If you are a responsible homeowner, and periodically look over your home’s interior and exterior, you might notice some issues with your chimney. It may have some loose flashing, a damaged cap, or even cracks and stains in the masonry. These problems can occur over time, even in a well-constructed masonry chimney. The best thing you can do is schedule professional services to resolve them. The worst thing you can do? Try to do it yourself.

Saving Money Costs MoneyLet Us Address Chimney Repairs

The most common reason that homeowners attempt to D-I-Y home repairs is to save money. In an attempt to do so, the cheapest parts are often bought (and if they aren’t cheap enough in-store, they’re ordered online). This means you save money on parts, but you’re installing parts that are made out of the cheapest materials, and at the fastest rate possible. The reason that parts are cheap is that they were cheap for the manufacturer! Furthermore, ordering parts online is the best way to ensure that the products do not comply with your federal, state, and local fire safety code regulations.

Did You Know…

  • new mortar will weaken your masonry if it doesn’t match the old mortar in consistency and strength exactly? It also needs to match in color for the sake of your property value and curb appeal.
  • your flashing should be installed specifically for the material and slant of your roof, no nails should be exposed, and no sealant should be placed on the flashing? In fact, flashing is one of the most difficult installations in the industry!
  • sealants, water repellents, and cleaning agents that you buy in the home improvement store are cheap copycats of real quality products that are especially made for working on your chimney without damaging it or becoming a danger to your home or family? Many products in the stores are sealants and repellents designed for other things and transitioned into use for chimneys in order to make a buck but only cause harm to the chimney system.
  • your homeowners’ insurance will not honor chimney repairs or maintenance that is done by the homeowner or an uncertified contractor? CSIA is the industry standard recognized by fire protection professionals, legal professionals, insurance companies, and more.
  • Magic Sweep, Corp. is licensed, and certified for chimney maintenance, and the #1 choice for comprehensive chimney care in the Hampton Roads area.
