A vital function

Although chimney stacks are easily forgotten about, they perform a vital function for our homes and properties, especially with the growth in popularity of wood burning stoves. They are not easy to check, so get the professionals to look over your chimney and make sure it’s safe.

Easily neglected

How often do we look up to check on the condition of our home? With chimneys and roofs, any damage can be hard to detect, though some signs will be obvious and will indicate that some repair and maintenance is needed. Due to its location, your chimney stack is most exposed to the elements, and will take the brunt of adverse weather conditions, so will naturally deteriorate over time.

Common issues with chimney stacks

One of the most common issues with chimney stacks is the erosion of mortar joints, causing the chimneys to become unstable. Eventually the chimney might collapse during a storm or high wind conditions and may seriously damage the roof – it could even crash straight through the roof. A poorly maintained chimney could also become partially or fully blocked, causing ventilation problems. Your chimney may also need reflashing to ensure that it has a good seal with the roof.

Maintenance –
a wise investment

We are able to expertly identify any issues with your chimney stack, and safely and efficiently resolve any issues to ensure that your chimney stands proud and solidly performs its function for many decades. As with any work of this type, it is a far wiser investment to do the job thoroughly the first time, rather than a quick patch up that will need further work in the not-too-distant future.
