Unionville, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2015 -- Chimneys should be inspected prior to the beginning of heating season, including systems for gas, oil and propane. In addition, wood burning fireplace chimneys should be inspected after every cord of wood is burned. As the summer rolls on and homeowners are continuing to notice signs of weathering, wear or water damage to their masonry structures, there's no better time to inquire about sweeps and repair services. Avoid waiting for maintenance during the busy fall and winter months, and contact Creative Masonry & Chimney for great deals this summer on chimney repair in the Hartford, CT area.
The most common type of problem with chimneys is water infiltration. Porous structures absorb moisture, which severely damages the foundation of the masonry during freeze and thaw cycles. During the freeze and thaw cycle, homeowners can determine damage due to cracked bricks, missing mortar joints, or a light powdery substance on the masonry.
When the chimney is left unmaintained, this could lead to a costly repair as opposed to a quick fix. Homeowners could experience a buildup of creosote or internal flue style damage with could allow carbon monoxide to enter the home. During each inspection, a highly trained chimney expert will perform a thorough investigation of the chimney.
