When it comes to chimney repair, contact Thomas Quality Construction. Taking a working chimney for granted can be costly as certain repairs are commonly required over a lifetime. Some common chimney repairs are often done because people just don’t know to be on the lookout for ways to reduce the repairs. For example, the type and amount of firewood burned in a wood burning fireplace has a lot to do with buildup of a substance called creosote. Creosote can cause your fireplace to smell during the warmer parts of the year and if it is not addressed, it is the substance that can catch fire and cause damage to your home. Being aware of this can lead to a maintenance schedule where the chimney can be swept and inspected based on the burn.
Another thing to lookout for is water coming into your chimney system. If you see or hear water dripping anywhere around the firebox, mantel or chimney, contact Thomas Quality Construction immediately. Water is the number one enemy of chimneys. It can damage the brick, mortar and flue and can cause some expensive repairs that have to be made to the chimney, walls, mantels and ceilings in the room where the fireplace is.
