The worst thing to hear is that you cannot use your chimney and fireplace. As another winter approaches, this news may be devastating to your family. Many homeowners host holidays gatherings throughout winter, as well as enjoy lounging by the fire into a cool evening. This doesn’t have to stop. You can have the chimney of your dreams by winter, but you have to start now.
When to Schedule a Rebuild
The time is now. If you have damaged masonry, you are allowing water into your chimney system every day that you don’t have it repaired. Water in the chimney can lead to damage to the entire chimney system and it doesn’t stop there. Water may enter the home by way of your damaged masonry, but it can travel through the chimney into your home, damaging walls, floors, weakening structural materials, and even leading to mold and mildew-related health conditions. You may think you’re saving money by not having it rebuilt, but you are most likely allowing damage to occur that will be costly to repair.
It is also important to have your chimney rebuilt before you use it. If you have been told you chimney is damaged, do not light a fire in it. When you have it rebuilt, your Black Moose chimney sweep will not stop until it is fire-ready. We can achieve this by working and planning together, but we cannot start until we get the call!
