It seems that all chimneys need repairs and maintenance from time to time. At Magic Broom, we do our best to patch up any cracks or holes and fix up any issues as needed! That being said, sometimes a repair job just won’t cut it. In these cases, you need an expert to rebuild your system, and our CSIA certified staff can help you out!
The type of rebuilding work we do will depend on just what exactly caused your damage in the first place. There are lots of things that can put wear and tear on your chimney. Review them below, then learn how we can get you back to normal again in no time.
One of the biggest problems we see in the industry is systems that have faced water damage. Water is one of the biggest threats to masonry, and heightened exposure to it will wear down your brickwork fast. It can trigger clogs, rust, rot, stains, and deterioration and you may even find yourself dealing with a settlement or collapse. No matter the issue, your system will be unsuitable and unsafe for regular use, and your home may be in danger, too.
When water damage has gotten past the point of repair, we can do a rebuild. And once we’ve got everything completed, you can invest in our waterproofing services to ensure your system stays adequately protected this time around. We use products that seal and safeguard the chimney, while allowing it the ability to breathe out necessary vapors. Count on us to keep your system safer – we won’t let you down!
If creosote and other debris has accumulated in your chimney system, then you may be at risk for a house or chimney fire. Creosote is highly flammable and too much of it is one of the main reasons why chimney fires occur. Chimney fires cause immense damage to your system, destroy the liner, and make your fireplace unsuitable for use. Your mortar will melt, cracks will form, and your home and roof will be more vulnerable to catch flames.
No matter the case, a rebuild is likely your best solution, and it will allow you peace of mind when using your fireplace from here on out. In situations like this, it’s always best to play it safe. Count on us to rebuild your system, so you can enjoy your fireplace to the fullest.
Neglect Or Weather Damage
Weather and neglect are two of the other major reasons why a rebuild may be necessary. Earthquakes and other natural disasters cause significant damages, and it’s not uncommon for homeowners to need rebuilds afterwards. Other times, systems have simply not received the care and regular maintenance necessary for keeping their strong structure. We provide both services to get the system working normally again.
