A Few Of The Most Common Repairs We Make
Repairing Or Replacing Chase Covers
Your factory-built chimney system should have a chase protecting the chimney, and a chase cover protecting that chase, up at the top. Chase covers are usually made of galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum or copper, and we most often see the need to repair or replace lower-grade covers. If you see rust streaks or other signs of damage, give Mountain Man Fireplace and Chimney a call — we can install a cover that properly protects your chase and chimney.
Chimney Caps And Accessories
Having a chimney without a chimney cap is, more or less, like leaving a hole in the top of your home. A properly-sized and -installed chimney cap helps protect your chimney system and home against the intrusion of rain, snow and sleet, as well as birds and other animals. At Mountain Man Fireplace and Chimney, we carry an array of chimney caps and accessories that can protect your home and keep it looking great.
Most home energy audits state that older fireplaces contribute considerably to energy loss. Top-sealing dampers, with gaskets that help thoroughly seal off the flue, can significantly reduce that loss. We recommend these to replace old throat dampers that are stuck in place or corroded, or for homeowners who just want to take advantage of that energy efficiency.
These are just a few of the repairs Mountain Man Fireplace and Chimney technicians can perform. Whether you need leaks repaired, masonry repairs (like chimney crown replacement or tuckpointing work) or full chimney tear-outs and rebuilds, our experienced staff can help.
Prevention Can Keep Your System From Needing Repairs
If something goes wrong in your chimney system, Mountain Man Fireplace and Chimney technicians will be glad to help make it right. But taking preventative measures can help postpone the need for repairs.
The first step: Schedule your annual chimney sweeping and chimney inspection appointments. Having that annual maintenance done will help keep debris and deposits from damaging your system and will make sure that any problems that do come up are found early.
We can also recommend a waterproofing sealant that can protect your masonry against water and let you enjoy your chimney, worry-free, for a lot longer.
