What We Look Out For During Your Chimney Inspection.
The chimney cap and flue flashing, as well as areas around the chimney, will be inspected by our specialists. Unsafe wood-burning fireplaces may leak black smoke into the house (if the chimney is blocked, cracked, or caved in), which can harm your lungs and be a fire hazard; meanwhile, fractured or fragile chimneys might fall off the roof and result in injury or damage. We take your health and safety seriously, which is why we conduct risk assessments at each property and can almost always give suggestions or advice if you have any particular worries.
A chimney’s flue state is another common issue, for which we can replace the entire masonry and mortar to assure that there is no collapse or opportunity for water to enter. Dry mortar is frequently an excellent choice because it is very successful at preventing leaks and fractures, however if enough damage has been incurred, the only option may be to replace the chimney entirely.
Chimneys are fully exposed to the elements, so chimney deterioration is common in the United Kingdom. Our team has many decades of combined expertise repairing chimneys and will provide a long-lasting repair that will last for years to come.
