For those of you that have ever had to have major repairs performed on your chimney, you are well aware how expensive they can be. The old saying, “a stitch in time saves nine”, is very apropos in this instance. Performing maintenance on your chimney before the major repairs come will save you a lot of money. Remember, you can’t ignore chimney damage. It can damage the rest of your home, as well as create a very unsafe environment for you and your family.
This is where HeatShield® can be a big help. Rather than spend money on a brand new chimney liner, HeatShield® can be used to fix the damage to your chimney. Before this is done, we will have to perform a video inspection, because there are some things that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Please do not attempt this yourself. It is not safe for untrained people to inspect their chimney, and it is unlikely they will know what it is they are looking for. Things like brick spalling, split flue tiles, and cracked mortar may be hard to see inside the darkness of the chimney.
