Sweeping a chimney does not “make” it safe…0

Posted on November 14th, 2013 in News

Don’t be fooled by un-certified cheap chimney sweep service providers.
Sweeping your chimney does not make it safe.
Original construction defects, chimney fire damage, human error and improper use are what make your chimney safe or unsafe

Chimney water leaks from rain? I repair flashing, seal chimneys etc..0

Posted on June 6th, 2013 in News

I have had hundreds of customers call me for water leaks. Sometimes for specific wind driven rain, sometimes only in winter, sometimes only after long duration rainy days.
Most of the time the finger is pointed at the flashing, the area where the chimney and roof meet.
In may cases, we find tar that has been used in past years to seal the flashing has hardened and then cracked from chimney expansion.
I use an elastomeric flashing repair method that has fiberglass mesh reinforcement within 2 layers of a rubberized compound that will not harden and crack.
I also have experience in diagnosing the many different types and styles of chimney masonry products, bricks, blocks, stone etc.. all have different natural abilities to absorb or repel rain water
Metal pipe chimneys often have a storm collar that needs silicone to prevent water from running down the outside wall of the chimney pipe
