Today we visited a home on Granville Road in Westfield, MA that had some chimney issues.
Our free chimney inspection uncovered that they needed chimney repair & relining.
We arrived at the home early in the morning and began with the chimney inspection. This process usually takes around 15-20 minutes to complete. The customer was relieved to hear that we were able to pinpoint all of their chimney issues.
Certified Chimney Inspections is a fully licensed and certified chimney company so we are able to provide every chimney service necessary to make sure your fireplace, stove and chimney are in pristine working condition. Our services cover everything from chimney inspections, to chimney cleanings, to chimney repairs and rebuilds.
The chimney inspection revealed multiple different issues, which were actually potential safety hazards for this Westfield home. Not to mention these chimney issues were causing the home to be less energy efficient. This means the homeowner was wasting money heating their home and they didn’t even know it.
One of the major chimney issues they had was that the mortar joints between the Terracotta flue tiles were missing. This creates an increased risk for a chimney fire.
This chimney also needed a flue liner replacement and mortar repair because the mortar joints between the bricks were badly deteriorated. Replacing the chimney liner will help to prevent heat from escaping through the chimney, making the home more energy efficient. Fixing the mortar joints will eliminate the risk of the chimney deteriorating further, which could lead to falling bricks creating further damage.
We provided a free estimate on the spot for the homeowner which included brick masonry chimney repair and for the correct chimney liner to be installed. Waterproofing the chimney was also recommended to ensure the lifetime of our work.
After our customer invests in fixing these chimney issues, they will save a ton of money in the long run because their home will conserve more energy by having a proficient chimney. Not to mention their home will be a lot safer for many years to come.
