Chimney Rebuilds & Chimney Repairs
Worried about the state of your chimney? With cities like Toronto frequently bracing cold winters, having a reliable chimney is essential for a functional fireplace.
Chimneys also do much more than service fireplaces, however. They provide important ventilation for hot flue gases or smoke from a boiler, stove, furnace or hot water heater to the exterior of your home. Therefore, it is important to keep your chimney in good condition. By ignoring the quality of your chimney, you risk having costly repairs in the future which could disrupt your home or impede any future renovation plans.
Signs Your Chimney Needs Repair or Rebuilding
When it comes to checking the quality of your chimney, you will want to ensure that your flue tiles and chimney caps are also in good condition to prevent premature erosion on your chimney. Please look out for the following signs:
- Spalling brickwork
- Missing mortar
- Cracked flues
- Damaged chimney caps
If any of these signs are evident on your chimney, it might be time to have a licensed professional inspect and rebuild it.
