Replace Chase Covers
Leaky or damaged chase covers/tops, or those not properly air-cooled, are potential hazards and have been the root cause of many chimney and home fires in San Diego County.
We help eliminate problems before they start by replacing rusty metal and not properly cooling chase covers/tops that have been installed by negligent contractors who didn’t follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.
Install Chimney Caps
The best way to prevent moisture from rain, animals, leaves, and other debris from entering your chimney venting system is to install a chimney cap.
We follow all the UL listings for any type of chimney in San Diego County and are fully licensed to sell and install them.
Water Leak, Condensation Resolution & Repair
If water is damaging your fireplace inside or out, we’ll find and fix it. Water stains on ceilings or walls can often be traced back to an improperly sealed chimney, roofline or roof vent. Sealing these areas can prevent thousands in future home repairs.
There are as many different types of chimney caps out there as home designs, to avoid installing an improper chimney cap that is not UL listed for your home and thus voiding a possible insurance claim in the event of an accident and/or putting your family at risk, only a certified chimney sweep should recommend or install a chimney cap.
An improperly built crown is a common issue that can be causing extensive and expensive damage to your chimney system. When the crown is cracking it is letting moisture into your system and possibly into the re-barb reinforcements that when compromised can pull apart your chimney from the inside and weaken its earthquake resistance. Further, when water mixes with the creosote it can form sulfuric acid. This can cause the chimney to start to crumble internally. If you are having leaking or know that your chimney crown has been damaged due to coastal moisture and showers or inland showers and summer heat, give us a call for a full chimney safety inspection and home consultation to go over your options.
