Liner Gap Repair
Masonry fireplaces may be missing mortar in between flue tile sections due to rainwater entering through a damaged or missing chimney cap, improper original construction, natural disasters, or age. These openings can allow the escape of combustion products which is HAZARDOUS. In order to use your chimney safely and meet code requirements, the flue liner must be repaired. We offer the reliable and safe Fireguard repair system. Previously, the only choice was to either install a fireplace insert and reline the chimney, or to tear down and rebuild the chimney. Fireguard can save thousands of dollars in repair costs. Contact us today and one of our team members will be happy to review how Fireguard can keep your chimney safe.
A chimney cap is an integral part of a fireplace system and serves several critical functions. It keeps water from entering the system which can cause severe damage. It also prevents debris and animals from entering the chimney, which could lead to unsafe and hazardous blockages. Additionally, a chimney cap also has a spark arrestor that keeps dangerous sparks from flying out onto your roof or property, and causing a fire. We will make sure your chimney cap is fitted properly and safely to prevent damage to your home.
A chimney crown prevents water from entering the exterior masonry. Water that enters the chimney crown can lead to costly repairs to the chimney, ceiling, walls, and attic. Preventing water entry should not be taken lightly. We can repair or rebuild your crown to keep water out!
A chase top hides the chimney pipe of your prefabricated fireplace. If they are too small, designed or installed incorrectly, water can “pool” and enter the chase area. Since the prefab fireplace is made of all metal components, it can cause significant corrosion and deterioration, which could require a costly removal and replacement.
A storm collar is a small piece of metal flashing that wraps around the chimney as it exits the chase cover through the chase collar. Without a storm collar, water can enter the entire length of the chimney, resulting in costly water damage.
