Emergency Winter Chimney Repairs: What to Do  

Certified professional chimney sweeps perform services all year long. Is this the best time, maybe not, but it can be done. There are instances that need emergency fixes such as leaks or a broken cap. Winter repairs are scheduled for these types of instances. Schedule your chimney sweep and inspection shortly after the fire-burning season each year. You won’t want to be a fireplace at the first signs of cooler weather.

spalling brick repairs in Martinsville INYour best plan for chimney maintenance is to take care of these in the spring to early fall. We don’t always have that convenience. But keep this in mind when doing your spring and summer maintenance. The reason is that if the weather is too wet or too cold the materials used will not cure properly.

Take the time in the summer to take care of any leaks that you may have noticed during the winter. Leaks are a sure sign that you should call your professional chimney expert. Whether it is in the summer or winter, Chimney Solutions of Indiana will be happy to come out and make any repairs to get you through the winter.

What Can Go Wrong and What Can I Do?

The winter weather will wreak havoc on your chimney. The constant rain, sleet, harsh winds, and snow will deteriorate the chimney masonry. The biggest culprit in the winter is the process of freezing and thawing repeatedly. Like any other structure, after a while, the materials break down. The expanding and contracting repeatedly. This happens to the bricks and mortar of your fireplace and chimney. If you see that the mortar is cracking, you may want to consider tuckpointing. This is a process that scrapes away old cracking or brittle masonry and replaces it with new. An excellent way of maintaining a good working fireplace and chimney structure.

The best maintenance you can do for a long life of enjoyment with your fireplace is to have it inspected each year. There is no way that you will know what is going on inside your chimney by looking up the chimney. A small fire could have occurred, and you would not have known. A professional with a camera will be able to visualize the inside. If something is stuck halfway up, a professional will be able to use their tools to scrape and clean it out. Before you start your fire this winter, call us at Chimney Solutions of Indiana. We will be able to inspect and clean out your chimney and get it ready for the upcoming season.
