Get Ready for Spring

It’s that time of year when we might still have a few snowy days, but we start seeing more rainy ones. It’s usually when homeowners take notice of any issues with their chimneys.

The chimney serves several important functions and their simple appearance does not reflect their complex construction and performance requirements. A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure can be a potential safety hazard, such as direct contact with water and water penetration!

Our intention this month is to address some of those issues. Keep in mind: water can be introduced to a chimney from other areas of the home. Damaged gutters or roofs, overflowing gutters, downspouts dumping water near or on the chimney, and even gutters that are not sloped away from the chimney, all can cause water to show up in strange areas related to the chimney.

We hope this helps and please don’t hesitate to reach out with you questions or requests.
