Flue Issues
Are there hidden dangers lurking in your chimney’s flue? Not sure? Well, if you are not a trained and certified chimney expert that uses high-definition video equipment to inspect your chimney, you are likely not going to know…. which is bad. If these types of issues go undetected, they are not only going to impact the efficiency of your chimney, they can also be very dangerous.
Leaky Chimney
Chimneys stick out above your roof line, exposing them to more severe weather conditions than any other part of your home. All the rain and snow around your chimney creates water that can penetrate, deteriorate and damage your chimney. If this happens, you will need to fix the water damage to ensure that your chimney functions properly. To prevent water damage, by spending a little time and money on water proofing your chimney could save you thoughts of dollars of more costly repair later on.
Chimney Fires
Chimney fires can be dangerous and even deadly. The absolute best way to prevent a chimney fire in your home is to have your chimney inspected and cleaned once every year to prevent hazardous buildup and identify any issues that need repair.
Flashing Issues
With our up and down winters and rainy springs, chimney are pretty common in homes the Northern VA and DC metro area. A major cause is issues with the flashing- the sheet metal that keeps section between the chimney and roof watertight. When the flashing is not working properly, water can get in and cause a lot of damage to your home’s roof, wood framing and drywall ceiling. It’s important to fix this problem as soon as it is detected before the damage becomes too severe and very expensive.
HeatShield®
HeatShield® is a specially formulated “Cerfractory®” sealant material that is used to restore the integrity of your chimney’s flue in order to vent hazardous flue gases from your home. It is used to repair and help prevent damage to your chimney caused by gaps, cracks, and spalling. By using either the Repair System or the CeCure® Sleeve Relining System (depending on the defects found) your chimney can be restored to its original peak level of safety and efficiency.
